OMG I can not believe I am going to say this, but I agree with those words.
I really doubt you agree with Trump on this. Trump really does not want to hear about the misdeeds of these historical figures. In many cases living relatives of these figures agree it's time for these monuments to go.
Once you start destroying or rewriting history, you are bound to repeat it. You must learn from history, the good and the bad. Once you start destroying books, art & records, you are on the slippery slope of failure and destruction. Ask and review the past of any despotic country and you will see the truth in this.
I think you don't have to worry. Trump has signed an executive order for the establishment of some kind of official American statue preservation park. He's also signed some other executive order preventing local authorities moving monuments of this nature. Some local authorities have responded instead with the creation of visual barriers so a monument cannot be seen.
