Ex- US President, Donald Trump has praised slave master and Confederate Robert E. Lee as a ‘genius’ after the Confederate leader’s statue was dismantled in Richmond, Virginia.
Trump called Lee, who led the South’s army in the Civil War, “the greatest strategist of them all” and “perhaps the greatest unifying force after the war was over.”
“He was a genius’
He even mused that Lee could’ve destroyed the Taliban, if he were still alive .
“If only we had Robert E. Lee to command our troops in Afghanistan, that disaster would have ended in a complete and total victory many years ago,” Trump said.
