was speaking in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, when he slammed schools for wanting to teach the New York Times' 1619 Project. 

'The first thing they [Democrats] do is they want to take your history away,' said to the cheering crowd. 

'That's why the monuments and the statues, they want to knock them down. The first thing they do is take away your guts. They take away your statues, they take away your heroes, they take away your great generals, they take away your past.' 

The president then said that his goal is to 'restore patriotic education to our schools, and we will teach our children to love our country, honor our history, and always respect our great American Flag'.

Huge cheers went up when he spoke about the fines he had introduced for defacing monuments and statues, amid Black Lives Matter protests that gained international attention following the May 25 killing of George Floyd who died under the knee of a Minneapolis officer.

's remarks about The 1619 Project came just a day after he was asked about instructors using the interactive project to teach slavery in America and whether he wanted the subject to be taught. 

In response, the president said: 'I want everybody to know everything they can about our history. I am not a believer in cancel culture, the good or the bad, if you don’t study the bad it could happen again. So I do want that subject studied very carefully and accurately.'

then claimed: 'But, we grew up with a certain history and now they’re trying to change our history. Revisionist history. That’s why they want to take down our monuments, take down our statues.' 

The president was referring to the removal of several Confederate monuments amid the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement. 

The Pulitzer-Prize winning collection of essays, photo essays, poems, and short fiction pieces published last year seeks to reframe American history as starting in 1619, when the first slaves from Africa arrived to Virginia, rather than 1776, when the founding fathers declared independence from Britain.

On Sunday, the president retweeted a message from an unverified account saying the project would be taught in schools and shared: 'Department of Education is looking at this. If so, they will not be funded!'  

And on Friday, banned federal agencies from conducting racial sensitivity training related to 'white privilege' and 'critical race theory'. 

The banning of the 1619 project is the latest effort by against new progressive interpretations to history that he deems un-American.
