Donald Trump: “Bring Columbus Day back!

Christopher Columbus’ first voyage was funded by Ferdinand II and Isabella I, the Catholic Monarchs of Spain. The investment was significant at the time due to Spain’s costly war against Moorish (Muslim) invaders.

Columbus’ original intention was to find a waterway between Europe and Asia to increase trade. Instead, Christopher Columbus discovered the “new world”, producing a great expansion of human achievement, living standards, wealth and poverty reduction in less than 500 years.

Some far-left radicals have since tried to cancel Columbus Day in the United States, replacing it with “Indigenous Peoples Day”. “Indigenous Peoples Day” was proclaimed a holiday by the Biden administration in 2021.

“Since time immemorial, Native Americans, Alaska Natives, and Hawaiian Native Americans have built vibrant and diverse cultures – safeguarding land, language, spirit, knowledge, and traditions across generations. “said the proclamation from the White House.

“On Indigenous Peoples Day, our nation celebrates the invaluable contributions and resilience of Indigenous peoples, recognizes their inherent sovereignty, and commits to honoring the federal government’s trust and treaty obligations to nations. tribes,” the proclamation continues.
