Pelosi: It's Time To Get Rid Of Confederate Statues In The Capitol

The 10 that depict Confederate figures hail from nine states: Georgia, Florida, Alabama, West Virginia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia.

Ryan's office responded to Pelosi's statement.

Under current law, a state official such as a governor would have to make a request to replace a statue.

There are 12 statues of Confederate figures in the Statuary Hall Collection, including former Confederate States of America President Jefferson Davis and Gen. Robert E. Lee.

Members of both parties have condemned Trump's insistence that "both sides" bear some responsibility for the clashes at the Charlottesville, Va. rally and his defense of "very fine people" who joined a torch-wielding group of white supremacists that marched on the University of Virginia chanting "Jews will not replace us" and Nazi slogans.

Other African-American lawmakers this week have also said they want the Capitol's Confederate statues to be removed.

Anglin has cultivated an online community that routinely threatens and seeks to intimidate religious and racial minorities. He's no fan of the Daily Stormer or sites like it. "So we made a decision to suspend [the] domain Dailystormer.ru".

As the governor of Virginia, McAuliffe would have the ability to remove the statue legally, since there is no existing state code that requires the decision be made by the Republican-controlled state legislature. "Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee, on the other hand, tried to split a nation", Fauntroy explained.

During a press conference on Tuesday, Trump expressed his opposition to removing the statues. I wonder is it George Washington next week and is it Thomas Jefferson the week after? Jefferson Davis, president of the Confederacy, was selected by MS in 1931.

But on Thursday, the president said on Twitter that "you ... can't change history, but you can learn from it", in bemoaning the removal of the statues and monuments. Trump's chief strategist, Steve Bannon, who has been accused by Republicans and Democrats alike for alleged ties to far-right and white nationalist groups, made clear this week he welcomes debates about race.

Their efforts got a boost on Wednesday from USA Today, which published an editorial calling for censure as "a forceful way of rebuking the White House and condemning the vile views of a bigoted fringe".

She said: "I hope that we will hear more from them".
