“If we’re going to pull down all statues, it seems more like the Taliban,” said Paul. “I’m not Buddhist, Muslim or any of those religions but it was sad to see those huge, giant Buddhist statues being blown up by the Taliban.”

Paul went on to share his thoughts on President Donald Trump’s desire to protect monuments with an executive order.

According to reports the president is readying an executive order that would criminalize the destruction of monuments on federal property.
