President Obama took it upon himself to change both America and the White House. One of the things he did to change the “decor” in the oval office was to send the statue of Winston Churchill back to England.
President-Elect Trump has taken it upon himself to restore dignity to the White House. He has asked the English to return the Churchill statue so that it can again be displayed in the Oval Office.
Via AngryPatriotMovement: Obama put a bust of Martin Luther King Jr. in place of Winston Churchill. The Oval Office is quite a spacious room—surely there was room enough to keep the kind gift from our NATO ally AND add a display to honor the slain Civil Rights leader?
Via TheTelegraph: Last Friday Mr Johnson said the “part-Kenyan” president Obama had intentionally removed a bust of Winston Churchill from the Oval Office due to his “ancestral dislike of the British Empire”.
The feeling among Conservatives in America and in Europe is that Obama is ashamed of the Western tradition. He feels as if we need to apologize for European Culture since Liberals perceive that the history of our culture is rooted in war and oppression. It comes down to the simple fact that Liberals are not proud of the American tradition. Conservatives are. Trump is.
Via APM: Brexit leader Nigel Farage is believed to have chatted with Donald Trump about the Winston Church bust, among many other things of course, during their meeting in November. Farage, the leader of the Independence Party, tweeted after the meeting: “Especially pleased at @realDonaldTrump‘s very positive reaction to idea that Sir Winston Churchill’s bust should be put back in Oval Office.”
