McEnany Refuses To Directly Say If Trump Believes ‘It’s A Good Thing That The South Lost The Civil War’




Asked on Monday if President Trump believes “it was a good thing that the South lost the Civil War,” White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany refused to directly answer the question, instead, she attacked the question as “absurd” and insisted Trump is “proud of the United States of America.”

“There’s a national conversation going on right now about the proper place of the symbols of the Confederacy,” the reporter explained. “The president has repeatedly inserted himself into this debate. And I think a lot of people are trying to understand what his view of memorializing the Confederacy is.”



“Does President Trump believe that it was a good thing that the South lost the Civil War?” the reporter asked following Trump’s recent threats to prosecute protesters who vandalized Confederate-era statues. “And is he interested in following NASCAR’s example and banning the Confederate flag at his own events?”

“Well, your first question is absolutely absurd,” McEnany replied without providing a direct answer. “He’s proud of the United States of America.”

“Those tearing down statues will be punished to the fullest extent of the law,” McEnany added. “He will not stand for lawlessness and chaos. He stands with the 71 percent of Americans who say there is no place for tearing down statues as these anarchists are doing across the nation.”
