General Mark Milley advocated renaming bases named after the confederates

The point of view of the head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff contradicts the position of the President.

The head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Mark Milley, expressed support for renaming military bases named after Confederate leaders.

Speaking before the House armed services Committee, Milley noted that the Confederate generals “violated their oath of office.”

“At the time, it was an act of treason, against the Union, against the flag, against the US Constitution,” he added.

Milley said he recommended that a Commission be set up that would “carefully examine the bases, monuments, names and other such things to see if there can be a rational mature discussion” on the issue.

These statements contradict the position of President Donald Trump, who has made it clear that he intends to block any plans to rename the bases.
