Donald Trump Erroneously Accused Democrats of Wanting to Change the Name Thanksgiving
Type: Outright LiesNov 26 2019 Severity: Targeted: Democratic Party
Donald Trump erroneously accused Democrats of wanting to change the name Thanksgiving to something else during a rambling and incoherent rant about a war on the holiday. Trump said "they [Democrats] don't want to use the term Thanksgiving" before promising the audience that he won't allow the name to be changed. The crowd, not surprisingly, roared their approval.
Quote | Contrary to Donald's accusation, Democrats have never proposed changing the name.
“As we gather for Thanksgiving, you know, some people want to change the name Thanksgiving. They don’t want to use the term Thanksgiving. People have different ideas why it shouldn’t be called Thanksgiving, but everybody in this room, I know, loves the name Thanksgiving. And we’re not changing.”
