Last week, Jeb Bush made headlines when he said that he doesn’t think the Redskins should be forced to change their name.
“I don’t find it offensive,” he said during a Sirius XM interview.
Over the weekend, Donald Trump agreed with him, despite all the backlash that Bush received as a result of his comments. Trump was asked his opinion on the Redskins’ team name and said that—surprise!—he thinks the team should be able to keep it for as long as they want.
“Honestly, I don’t think they should change the name, unless the owner wanted to,” he said. “I know Indians that are extremely proud of that name. They think it’s a positive.”
At this point, is anyone even surprised that this is Trump’s opinion?
