President Trump, a disrupter of norms, protocols and just about everything else, turns out to be firmly anti-iconoclast when it comes to statues of Confederate generals. “So this week it’s Robert E. Lee,” he said, in a combative and at times terrifying news conference Tuesday. “I noticed that Stonewall Jackson is coming down. I wonder, is it George Washington next week? And is it Thomas Jefferson the week after? You know, you really do have to ask yourself, where does it stop?”
"Sorry, Mr. President, You Are the Reason Confederate Memorials Must Come Down." is from the August 16, 2017 Museums section of The Washington Post. It was written by Philip Kennicott and narrated by Sam Scholl.
