Washington: President Donald Trump said Thursday the history and culture of the US were being “ripped apart” by the removal of statues memorializing the Confederate era.

“Sad to see the history and culture of our great country being ripped apart with the removal of our beautiful statues and monuments,” Trump wrote on Twitter.

“You can’t change history, but you can learn from it. Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson—who’s next. Washington, Jefferson? So foolish!”
