On Monday, President Donald J. Trump weighed in on two controversial name changes. California Democrats in Orange County passed a resolution last week in an effort to scrub late actor John Wayne’s name from their local airport, citing “racist and bigoted statements.” Then Princeton University announced they would remove President Woodrow Wilson’s name from their public policy school, citing “racist views and policies.” Trump reacted in a tweet, saying the changes showed, “Incredible stupidity!”

Trump’s comment led The Independent to claim he is supporting causes championed by “mostly white” Americans: “Mr Trump’s push back on the protests and toppling of statues of Confederate generals and leaders, and others that protesters view as having owned slaves or otherwise supported racism, appears yet another gesture to his conservative – and mostly white – voting base.”
In our Monday poll, we asked: “POLL: Do you agree with Trump’s comment about decision to change names on airport, school?” 98% of respondents answered, “Yes, I agree with Trump. It’s incredible stupidity!” One person commenting on the poll, Teresa, said, “Complete waste of time and money! Don’t they have more pressing issues to worry about right now than this?” See the results below.
