On Friday, at his Lebanon, Ohio campaign rally, President Donald Trump praised Confederate Robert E. Lee.

It only took the president less than 10 minutes before he made outrageous remarks.

Robert E. Lee is “finally being recognized as a great general,” Trump said about the racist icon. Adding, “Robert E. Lee was a great general. And Abraham Lincoln developed a phobia. He couldn’t beat Robert E. Lee. He was going crazy.”

Transnational threats require transnational solutions. To cite but one example, many of the medicines and medical supplies that Americans need, including N95 face masks, come from China."
