    "President Trump on Wednesday came out strongly against the idea of renaming U.S. military bases that are named after Confederate generals -- an issue that has come to the forefront amid the nationwide protests over police brutality and racial injustice."

    In a series of tweets on Wednesday afternoon, Trump called the bases named after Confederate soldiers “Hallowed Grounds” that helped train soldiers to win two world wars. He said his administration “will not even consider the renaming of these Magnificent and Fabled Military Installations.”

    White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany also began her briefing with the press Wednesday by reading the president's statement on the topic.

    “These Monumental and very Powerful Bases have become part of a Great American Heritage, and a history of Winning, Victory, and Freedom,” Trump tweeted. “Therefore, my Administration will not even consider the renaming of these Magnificent and Fabled Military Installations. Our history as the Greatest Nation in the World will not be tampered with. Respect our Military!”
