In response to a growing number of calls to remove a statue of Robert E. Lee in Charlottesville, Virginia, in 2017, Trump said that Founding Fathers Jefferson and Washington could be next on the list for removal.
"This week, it’s Robert E. Lee. I noticed that Stonewall Jackson is coming down. I wonder, is George Washington next week, and is it Thomas Jefferson the week after? ... You really do have to ask yourself, 'Where does it stop?'" Trump said at a press conference that year.
The president was mocked and shut down by comedian John Oliver and some in the media for the statement.
