In an effort to put an end to numerous Trump-era executive orders, President Joe Biden made the decision last Friday to cancel former President Donald Trump’s plan to build a “National Garden of American Heroes.”
Without providing justification, Biden unilaterally signed an executive order revoking Trump’s previous executive order to build a National Garden of American Heroes.
Trump originally announced he would be creating a garden to honor American history on the Fourth of July last year which he established by executive order later that month. This came in response to the left’s attempts to erase and alter it amid last summer’s destructive riots and attacks on historic displays.
The garden would have featured many American heroes who deserve honor, recognition, and lasting tribute because of the battles they won, ideas they championed, goals they accomplished, and many more heroic feats.
Figures mentioned in Trump’s executive order included Martin Luther King Jr., Amelia Earhart, Betsy Ross, Jackie Robinson, and dozens more.
“The National Garden is America’s answer to this reckless attempt to erase our heroes, values, and entire way of life,” said Trump in a January executive order establishing a task force to build the monument.
Not only did Biden halt the construction of Trump’s National Garden, but he also revoked numerous other executive orders signed by the former president.
One of those is an order that would have increased penalties on rioters by calling for the US government to prosecute demonstrators who vandalize and destroy statues on government property to the fullest extent of the law.
Despite that Biden revoked presidential actions that defend American culture, he has yet to give a public explanation on the matter.
