Angering conservatives across the country, President Joe Biden terminated the construction of former President Donald J. Trump’s “Garden of Heroes” with the stroke of a pen last night. Please note the well-known fact that when presidents don’t want the American people to know what they did, they do it late on Fridays when good folks start their weekends and ignore the news.
“In an executive order issued Friday, President Joe Biden revoked a Trump-era executive order that would create a National Garden of American Heroes,” according to National Review.
“Executive Order 13978, signed Jan. 18 by former President Donald Trump, directed a task force to construct a statuary park populated with sculptures of important figures in American history. Trump enacted the order in response to calls to dismantle monuments and landmarks commemorating Americans who played major roles in the nation’s development.
“Critics claimed that these monuments highlighted controversial personalities, such as certain Founding Fathers, with a record of wrongdoing that shouldn’t be celebrated.
“‘The National Garden is America’s answer to this reckless attempt to erase our heroes, values, and entire way of life,’ the order read. [emphasis added]
“‘America is responding to the tragic toppling of monuments to our founding generation and the giants of our past by commencing a new national project for their restoration, veneration, and celebration,” it continued. [emphasis added]
“The National Garden was set to feature influential Americans including John Adams, Muhammad Ali, Andrew Carnegie, Frederick Douglass, Albert Einstein, Benjamin Franklin, Milton Friedman, Andrew Jackson, and Franklin D. Roosevelt, among many others, according to the order…
“[Biden’s] action to prevent a National Garden from being built is one of many reversals he has executed against his predecessor’s policies. Friday’s executive order revoked five other Trump orders as well.” [emphasis added]
