Donald Trump praises Confederate icon Robert E. Lee at OH rally

President Donald Trump is set to rally in Southwest Ohio this week

A descendant of Robert E. Lee said he was "disheartened" to hear President Donald Trump praise the Confederate general during a rally in OH on Friday.

Naturally, though his decision to highlight Robert E. Lee and in turn, criticize Abraham Lincoln, and even Grant later on in the speech raised a few eyebrows and soon enough the wheels on Twitter began to go round and round.

It only took the president less than 10 minutes before he made outrageous remarks. "These were far from the truth", Lee said.

Trump told a story from the Civil War of President Abraham Lincoln dealing with the victories of confederate general Robert E. Lee.

For the record, a collateral descendant is someone who is descended from a brother or sister of an ancestor. "He was going insane". They said to Lincoln, 'You can't use him anymore. Grant, who went on to become the 18th president of the United States, was a native of OH and this marked Trump's attempt to make note of the great Ohioans who hail from the Buckeye State.

"And Lincoln said I don't care what problem he has, you guys aren't winning", Trump continued.

Trump's praise of Lee drew instant criticism from the left, who claimed it was racist.

"Grant figured it out, and Grant is a great general, and Grant came from right here", he concluded.
