On Friday, President Biden revoked Trump’s executive order to create a National Garden of American Heroes.
Biden also revoked Trump’s order to prevent online censorship, and his order to protect American monuments. Biden could have easily modified Trump’s initial order but instead revoked it entirely.
The White House did not give reasons as to why Biden revoked Trump’s executive orders but sent word of his order through text to reporters Friday afternoon.
When leftist demonstrators were vandalizing statues and monuments of American heroes Trump announced his plan to build a monument to great American heroes in July 2020,
“The National Garden is America’s answer to this reckless attempt to erase our heroes, values, and entire way of life,” Trump wrote in his executive order about the future of the memorial site.
In January 2021, Trump issued a list of 244 Americans he wanted to see in the garden, including Neil Armstrong, Daniel Boone, Kobe Bryant, William Buckley Jr., Johnny Cash, Whittaker Chambers, Ray Charles, Walt Disney, Aretha Franklin and other legends of American culture.
“[E]ach individual has been chosen for embodying the American spirit of daring and defiance, excellence and adventure, courage and confidence, loyalty and love,” Trump wrote in the executive order at the time.
