Donald Tweet Columbus Day


Christopher Columbus’s spirit of determination & adventure has provided inspiration to generations of Americans. On #ColumbusDay, we honor his remarkable accomplishments as a navigator, & celebrate his voyage into the unknown expanse of the Atlantic Ocean.

In truth Columbus voyaged west with the knowledge of Portugese and Basque fishermen, who harvested Cod from the Georges Bank off Newfoundland. The Vikings had also reached the Western Continent along with Irish monks. The Admiral of the Seven Oceans amazingly lost no one despite the Santa Maria running aground on Chri

stmas Day 1492, although the thirty-nine sailors he left on Hispanola were massacred by the Caribs after tormenting the Arawaks surrounding their colony.

After that Columbus and the Spaniards treated the indigenous people as slaves without souls. He was no saint, then again neither is Donald Trump.
