'They're looking at Jesus Christ': President Trump Warns Statue Destroyers Are Targeting Christianity

President Trump said he won't tolerate the destruction of statues depicting Jesus, the Founding Fathers, and others as long as he is in office.
"I think many of the people that are knocking down these statues don't even have any idea what the statue is, what it means, who it is," Trump said during a Tuesday press conference with Polish President Andrzej Duda in the Rose Garden. "Now, they're looking at Jesus Christ. They're looking at George Washington. They're looking at Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson. Not gonna happen. Not gonna happen. Not as long as I'm here."
On Monday, Real Justice PAC co-founder Shaun King, a prominent Black Lives Matter activist, writer, and high-profile supporter of independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders during the Democratic primary, said that depictions of white Jesus were "created as tools of oppression" and called for their destruction.

"Yes, I think the statues of the white European they claim is Jesus should also come down. They are a form of white supremacy. Always have been. In the Bible, when the family of Jesus wanted to hide, and blend in, guess where they went? EGYPT! Not Denmark. Tear them down," King said in a Twitter thread that circulated widely on social media.
"Yes. All murals and stained glass windows of white Jesus, and his European mother, and their white friends should also come down. They are a gross form white supremacy. Created as tools of oppression. Racist propaganda. They should all come down," he said.
