Former US President Donald Trump’s prediction about George Washington and the “efforts of his haters to erase him from history” has come back “perfectly true”, says Sky News presenter James Morrow.
“First, go back in your mind to 2017, the early days of the Trump administration, when the then president fell out with reporters over Maoist attempts on the left to erase American history,” Morrow said.
“At the time, so-called expert historians said that Trump was just being his normal hyperbolic self and that there was absolutely no way that the revolutionary general and first president of the United States, George Washington, or any other of the founding fathers , for that matter, could be next in the cancellation train.
“Not only is George Washington next, but now there is even a push to rename even George Washington University in Washington DC.
“The latest call for this just went out, wait, The Washington Post.”
“What are often derided as petty culture war fights are actually so important and worth having because it is not only important to look at the demand being made around the current thing in isolation, but to understand where it is going. then”.
