Vice President Mike Pence said Tuesday that states should decide whether to remove their Confederate statues from the U.S. Capitol, and said he believes more monuments should be built to celebrate those who have helped the U.S. progress.
"I hold the view that it's important that we remember our past and build on the progress that we've made," Pence told Fox News. "[In] the United States Capitol, every state is able to donate two statues to commemorate citizens they want to be remembered in the heart of our government. States can make those decisions."
"What we have to walk away from is the desire by some to erase parts of our history just in the name of some contemporary political cause," he said.
