Trump: Renaming Of Confederate Bases Won’t Happen

The Oklahoman reports:

Oklahoma Sen. Jim Inhofe, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, predicted that a provision would be removed from the bill that requires the 10 military bases named after Confederate generals to be renamed.

Inhofe said he spoke with President Donald Trump on Thursday about the provision, which the president and Inhofe oppose. “We’re going to see to it that provision doesn’t survive the bill,” Inhofe said. “I’m not going to say how at this point.”

The House bill includes a similar provision. The White House threatened to veto the House bill over the provision, but the legislation cleared with a veto-proof majority.
