Jones suggests using this year’s Democratic National Convention to change the party’s name

Jones said, “What I see happening from the Democrats and the Left: banding together, going throughout this country unlawfully tearing down statues and removing monuments and changing the name of streets and buildings because they feel it’s associated with racism and bigotry and the Confederacy.”

He then added, “But, here’s what they’re not touching and not banning at all or changing the name: the Democratic Party.’”

Jones said his party should use their national convention this year to change Democrats’ name in order to severe their past association with racism, slavery and the Confederacy.
