Shortly after the New York Times article was published, Change The Mascot, the national campaign advocating the removal of the Redskins moniker released a statement condemning Trump’s accusations.
Despite clamors from many throughout the years, Redskins owner Daniel Snyder maintains he’ll never willingly change the name.
Sides are split on a Redskins name change. “They think it’s positive”.
Mr. Trump. who has made bluntness a hallmark of his presidential bid, said that the Redskins moniker was yet another issue of unnecessary political correctness.
The New York Times points out fellow Republican hopeful Jeb Bush also expressed approval of the Redskins’ nickname saying, “I don’t find it offensive”.
During his SiriusXM interview, Bush recalled a similar incident in Florida during his time as governor.
“Honestly, I don’t think they should change the name, unless the owner wanted to”, he said.
Speaking about gun control, in light of the Oregon attack, Trump told the crowd that the second ammendment right ‘will make America great again.’ “It was a gun free zone, I will tell you if you had a couple of the teachers or somebody with guns in that room, you would have been a hell of a lot better off”, Trump said. McCain said. “Do we want to continue the barrel bombing, which is one of the reasons why 240,000 Syrians have been murdered?”
In comments aired Sunday on ABC’s “This Week”, Trump said he would not establish a no-fly zone over Syria, as several other candidates, including Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton, have suggested. He added, “I know Indians that are extremely proud of that name”. “I would love to see the owners think hard about what they could substitute”.
