Hours after criticizing NASCAR and Bubba Wallace, President Trump condemned the Washington Redskins and the Cleveland Indians in a tweet.

Over the weekend both the Redskins and Indians revealed that they were both going to perform internal reviews of their franchise names after being criticized for being racially insensitive.

In a tweet on Monday afternoon, the President stated that both team names are names of “strength, not weakness” and went on to say that he’s disappointed the teams were changing their names to be “politically correct.”

Trump’s tweet about the Redskins and Indians’ name comes days after he spoke out against national monuments and statues being defaced by protesters in his 4th of July speech.
