The White House scolded D.C. Mayor Muriel Elizabeth Bowser after attempting to plot the removal of statues within the city, Your Content can report.

“By publishing a plan that recommends potentially removing the Washington Monument, Christopher Columbus Statue, Andrew Jackson Statue, and Jefferson Memorial—among many other ludicrous recommendations—the radically liberal mayor of Washington, D.C., is repeating the same left-wing narrative used to incite dangerous riots: demolishing our history and destroying our great heritage.” The White House said Tuesday evening.  

“Our Nation’s capital is rightly filled with countless markers, memorials, and statues to honor and respect the men and women who built this country.

“President Donald J. Trump believes these places should be preserved, not torn down; respected, not hated; and passed on for generations to come.

“As long as President Trump is in the White House, the mayor’s irresponsible recommendations will go absolutely nowhere, and as the mayor of our Nation’s capital city—a city that belongs to the American people—she ought to be ashamed for even suggesting them for consideration.”

Earlier today, Mayor Bowser moved to have statues removed.

“We believe strongly that all District of Columbia owned public spaces, facilities and commemorative works should only honor those individuals who exemplified those values such as equity, opportunity and diversity that DC residents hold dear,” Bowser advisor Beverly Perry and public library director Richard Reyes-Gavilan recommended.
