(FiveNation.com)- Former President Donald Trump hasn’t gone quiet since leaving the White House and continues to speak up for the regular people of America. Most recently, the former president hit out at the decision to remove the famous Robert E. Lee statue in Virginia on Wednesday, noting how the “radical left” is desperately working to destroy American “history and heritage.”
In a statement issued by his Save America PAC, Trump said that he watched the huge crane pull down the “magnificent and very famous statue of ‘Robert E. Lee On His Horse’ in Richmond, Virginia.”
The tragic removal of the statue of the Civil War Confederate general is a slap in the face to Americans who respect our history, and would rather learn from it than pretend it didn’t happen. Local residents fought hard to keep the famous statue in place, but authorities ultimately decided that appeasing woke extremists was more important than protecting American heritage.
In his statement, the former president said that there is even a plan to cut the statue into three pieces and put the incredible work of art into storage.

Our culture is being destroyed and our history and heritage, both good and bad, are being extinguished by the Radical Left, and we can’t let that happen!" pic.twitter.com/xMXSSCqw1q

Trump said that Robert E. Lee is still considered by many generals to be the “greatest strategist of them all,” and reminded those who have no understanding of American history that President Abraham Lincoln even wanted Lee to command the North.
