Report: Trump intends to veto bill renaming military bases

President Donald Trump may be potentially facing his last days in the White House, as former Vice President Joe Biden’s victory is further cemented as the days tick by, but Trump has not waivered on following through with a promise he made to members of the U.S. military several months ago.

According to the Daily Caller, Trump is still refusing to sign a National Defense Authorization Act that — within the language of the bill — demands a number of large U.S. military bases be renamed, as their current names have been connected to historical Confederate figures. 

Because of the rising popularity of liberal “cancel culture,” Democrat lawmakers want to appease their constituents by literally erasing American history, another issue that Trump has repeatedly fought against.

NBC News reported that in conversations with Republican lawmakers, Trump stood his ground on not budging over his refusal to rename some of the largest military installations in the country, including places like Fort Benning in Georgia and Fort Bragg in North Carolina.

Trump tweeted his strong feelings about refusing to rename the bases in a tweet from earlier this year, pointing out the bases were firmly rooted in “great american heritage.”

“The United States of America trained and deployed our HEROES on these Hallowed Grounds, and won two World Wars. Therefore, my Administration will not even consider the renaming of these Magnificent and Fabled Military Installations,” Trump wrote at the time.

The staggering 740.5 billion defense authorization bill package was sidelined in September in favor of a post-election vote. With Trump in the White House at least until January 20 and his refusal to sign unless the base renaming language is stripped, there’s no telling how long it might take to actually pass the bill.

Hopefully, the two sides will come to some kind of agreement sooner than later, as the meat and potatoes of the bill will authorize much-needed pay raises for our troops, along with allowing the purchasing of equally-needed new equipment and resources.

As a Veteran I agree leave the military bases as they are there’s a reason why they were given the names that they have.. It’s usually those that never serve that come up with the idiotic ideas. They hate American History and our History is like none other.. leave it the “F” alone.

No way. Why are stupid Democrats so hell-bent on destroying everything in this country including our history! That’s what we’re made up of today and they are too! They must just be full of the devil and evil. They are just plain old mean! Read Chapter 13 of David Horowitz’s book BLITZ. You can see why the American people loved him so much as a president, the best president we’ve ever had!

This election is NOT over yet, by any means.
I’m reading David Horowitz’s book Blitz for the second time. I just think he wonderfully explains what is happening in the US. He also says, Trump will smash the left and win. Nothing makes me happier than this.
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone, we are truly blessed.

Isn’t it ironical that Dems put illegal people in our White House? Obo the clown was Kenyan born, Biden won this election illegally and Kamala Harris is an anchor baby whose parents were not citizens at the time of her birth When will they be investigated for their crimes of fraud? Actually, we have not had a legal president, except for Trump, for years. This is crossing the line!

Whether the bases were named after Union, Confederate Generals or Civilian Heroes doesn’t matter they were part of our history as a developing Republic. We can’t allow Domestic Terrorists like the Democrats, Antifa and BLM bully us into forgetting our heritage! The George Soros bought and paid for politicians like Obama, Biden, Harris, Clinton, Pelosi, Schumer and Schiff (to name just a few) want to make our Republic into part of a One World Order, which will destroy our Republic along with the lives and futures of our children and grandchildren. Then, we also have to take into account that the Biden Family, including Joe Biden have been implicated in criminal activities on an international level and that Joe Biden is in the pockets of the Communist Chinese Government to the tune of billions of dollars! I wonder just how objective Biden will be with his dealings with the Chinese? Oh, I’m sure that he will “put America First”, God help US!
