The Department of Defense and the GOP-controlled Senate have taken an official position contrary to that of President Trump over the renaming of military bases honoring notable Cofederates (“Trump veto threat falls flat as anti-Confederate campaign gains steam,” Web, July 1). President Trump desires to maintain the historical significance of the names of these bases and plans to veto a bill the GOP senators presented to him that would force the renaming of these bases at a later date.

It seems contrary to good political practice to present the president with a bill that opposes his wishes and shows the weakness of the Republican-controlled Senate in supporting the cause of the president. I agree with Mr. Trump and I’m hopeful that he will veto this funding bill that would result in renaming these military bases.
