This mountain thing is even becoming a distraction for Trump now
Via The Hill:
Donald Trump promised Monday that he would return the name of North America’s largest mountain to Mount McKinley, undoing President Obama’s decision to call it Denali.
Trump, who is running for president, tweeted late Monday that Obama’s act was a “great insult to Ohio.”
The White House announced the Denali moniker Sunday, restoring the name that Alaska Natives had called it for thousands of years before a gold prospector named it after McKinley in the late 19th century, when he was a presidential candidate.
The mountain’s new name, which Obama announced in advance of a three-day Alaska visit that includes meetings with Alaska Native leaders, aligns with what the state has been calling it for decades.
