During one of the many contentious exchanges that occurred with Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday this weekend, President Donald Trump randomly invoked Al Sharpton’s name in response to an unrelated question about renaming military bases. Now the reverend and MSNBC host is firing back.
When Wallace asked Trump if he really plans to veto a bill that would rename bases like Fort Bragg that are named after Confederate generals, pointing out that “the military says they’re for this,” Trump shot back, “I don’t care what the military says. I’m supposed to make the decision.”
“We’re going to name it after the Rev. Al Sharpton?” the president asked, before going off on a tangent about the two “beautiful World Wars” that were “vicious and horrible.”
