Trump Jr. Suggests Replacing Statues Taken Down with Statues of His Father

Tuesday morning, Donald Trump Jr. tweeted:

Want to save our monuments?

Let’s get a movement going to replace any statue torn down during these riots with a new and more sturdy statue of @realDonaldTrump.

The nonsense would stop instantly.

Earlier in the day, President Trump tweeted:

I have authorized the Federal Government to arrest anyone who vandalizes or destroys any monument, statue or other such Federal property in the U.S. with up to 10 years in prison, per the Veteran’s Memorial Preservation Act, or such other laws that may be pertinent…..

…..This action is taken effective immediately, but may also be used retroactively for destruction or vandalism already caused. There will be no exceptions!
