Because the bust is a gift given to us by the UK and symbolic of the special relationship between our two countries.

Back on topic.

Apparently xuenchen has realized that it was fake news.

Which brings us back to the point of this thread. Churchill did stuff that was well into murky territory, and it kind of casts an ominous shadow over why Trump would replace him back into the White House and remove MLK Jr.

#FakeNews: Media Falsely Reports Trump Removed MLK Bust From Oval Office



He also then apparently forgot he authored the thread in the first place.

So yeah, thread over I guess.

This is a great post and well thought out (rather than the "you're a nazi!" crew).

Do you think removing a bust from the White House is the same as erasing history? Do we have to admire these men and commemorate them by placing representations of them in our government buildings?

Now I've read Churchill's books about WWII and can see that the version we have all been taught about the war comes from him. Perhaps even Churchill is responsible for erasing history.

Cool. Thanks for clarifying that after your OP said/suggested otherwise.

Something tells me you knew that though didn't you?

He was a man who got the job done.
Britain wanted to survive and like a old small town butcher killing the animals so other didn't need to he took the unwanted and unsavory burden to make executive decisions.
He was silently put into a slight exile because of his actions.
End of the day he did make some drastic and very well thought out plans to ensure victory.

That's off topic mate, were trying to stick to the topic here remember?

Anyway, threads over now that xuenchen came out and clarified that MLK Jrs bust is still there too, after the OP suggested otherwise.

Neither the opening post or the article said anything about Trump removing the MLK sculpture.

There is a greater symbolism that transcends simply a bust. I don't think the bust represents the evil of dresden.
IMO it represents the special relationship between the UK and US and to a lesser extent former commonwealth countries. 
Which is most emphasized in WW2. The US could have stayed out of that war.
