In New York City today President Donald Trump signed an executive order to cut red tape on infrastructure projects to make it easier, he said, to construct roads and bridges. He then took questions from reporters, who almost exclusively asked about his comments about the violence in Charlottesville, VA, last weekend. The exchange between Trump and the reporters was lively, with one reporter asking the president, “Are you against the Confederacy?” Trump repeatedly denounced the reporters as being part of “fake news,” saying that the coverage of what happened in Charlottesville would have been better, “If you were honest reporters, which in many cases you’re not.” Trump also asked reporters if they were in favor of taking down statues of George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, since both were slave-owners. “You’re erasing history,” said the president.
