The Meaning of “Make America Great Again”

I spoke with Ivey DeJesus of Penn Live yesterday in my office.  She asked me about the phrase “Make America Again.”  Two corrections:

  1. I meant John Lewis, not “John Perkins”
  2. I meant those white supremacists in Charlottesville supporting (not protesting against) the Robert E. Lee monument believed that they were “making America great again.”

Sorry for the confusion.
