‘We have a lot more work to do’: Texas governor on Harvey recovery

Abbott, who was by Trump’s side during his visit, praised the president for being “so genuine” in his meetings with Texans displaced from their homes by the historic flooding.

Julian did not go to school there or even live in the district. Who is he speaking for? Not the community. Not for the people who overwhelming want to keep the name.

This tells me no matter what, whatever the left wants to do they are going to do it. After the statues are removed, the rewriting of history. Demonization of America and its history. Forget all the good that this country has done. Forget that slavery was something that all countries had. Forget that the US was the first to abolish it. Forget that only a few of the founding fathers had them. George Washington freed his towards the end. Jefferson wanted to release his, but his was a financial wreak. He did put things into place that would lead to abolishing slavery.
