However, such a move will only hurt the country — such opinion was expressed by Donald trump, the journalist of The Wall Street Journal.
“there is systemic racism, but renaming military bases would further divide the country. I take responsibility for the fact that the date of the end of slavery in the United States — June 19 was celebrated as a larger scale.”
