Trump: I’ll Veto Defense Bill if It Requires Stripping Confederate Names From Army Bases

6

President Donald Trump in a late Tuesday night tweet issued his strongest veto threat yet on a must-pass defense spending bill should lawmakers not strip language requiring bases named after Confederate leaders be rechristened.

Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts proposed requiring the bases be renamed as a part of the annual defense authorization bill. The legislation funds the Pentagon and is often one of the few pieces of legislation that Congress can be counted on to pass each year in order to fund the country’s military operations.

However, President Trump took a stand against Democrats trying to slip in a partisan issue into what is supposed to be a bipartisan bill.

“I will Veto the Defense Authorization Bill if the Elizabeth ‘Pocahontas’ Warren (of all people!) Amendment, which will lead to the renaming (plus other bad things!) of Fort Bragg, Fort Robert E. Lee, and many other Military Bases from which we won Two World Wars, is in the Bill!” Trump said in his tweet, not specifying what “other bad things” were included in the proposal.

  2. The lady owner of the plantation gets in touch with the local Army base. Next week it will be the 18th birthday of her daughter and she is giving a ball. Would like four handsome officers to attend. But, she tells the Colonel, you understand me, don’t send any smelling jew. Certainly Madam, I hear ya loud and clear.
    A few days later the ball has just started, the guests are arriving, and there’s a knock at the door, and the lady herself goes to open it. She gasps in horror! Four African-American Army officers in full uniform!!!
    She hardly regains her breath… “There has to be a mistake….”
    The elder among the officers shouts in response “Madam! No Madam! There can be no mistake. Colonel Cohen never makes mistakes!!!”
