Governments are free to remove public statues if they so choose.  Nothing wrong with that.  Individuals are not free to illegally vandalize or tear them down statues that are public property on their whim, and they should be prosecuted appropriately.  Nothing is controversial or racist about that.

As I have already stated, I think one reason to keep those statues/monuments is not to celebrate, but to congtinue to reming america of it's racist history, and hopefully begin to curb it's current existence.

He took it down shortly after and one excuse I heard put forward is that trump simply didn't listen to the whole content of the video and sent it out as soon as he heard support for himself. Call me paranoid but I wouldn't doubt he knew exactly what the whole content amounted to and aired it anyway as a quick reminder to his base, then removed it with a wink and a nod. I have no douibt he's a racist.

It's totally believable that he didn't watch the video.

He usually doesn't take anything down. Had he posted a White Power video on purpose, I don't think he'd have taken it down.

Either way, it's either racism or incompetence.

He retweeted the video of these ridiculous people.

https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/wireStory/couple-draw-guns-crowd-heading-st-louis-mayors-71506657?cid=social_twitter_abcn

President Trump on Monday shared a video on Twitter of a white couple pointing firearms at a group of protesters in St. Louis who were marching to the mayor's residence to demand her resignation.

So they are peaceful protestors and Mr. Pink LaCoste and Whipped-Cream Khaki Pants and Gold-Plated Gun Karen will never be charged.

You have to be blind (IMO) to not see where this is going.  There is NOTHING in the way of open civil violence between groups down there.   

But I also know that it's not my country so I am focussing on events at home these days.

Dude with an assault rifle along side his trophy wife with a tiny pistol is so funny to me.

I know it's not funny, this culture war in the US is a problem, but man that couple with their guns are SO FUNNY!

You are very generous in your application of trophy wife status.

Point taken. But it's a very short man.

I find it hard to believe he knew the white power thing was in there or that he watched the whole video.  He has the attention span of a squirrel.

He wanted to let his base know he's supports "White Power" heading into election time.

I think they're pretty confident in his support.

Note, Trump never said that the White Power thing was unacceptable. He just claimed he never saw it.

He also says he never heard there was a bounty on US troops serving abroad. Apparently he doesn't see how those issues underscore his ineptitude.

Here's where the **** is really gonna hit the fan for trump, he was advised that US troops were being targeted in Afghanistan for bounties, and did nothing about it. Putin has outsmarted donny numerous times and now putin can flick him off like a fly off a cows ass.
