Theodore Roosevelt IV, a great-grandson of the former president and museum trustee, told the Times he supported the decision.

I “The world does not need statues, relics of another age, that reflect neither the values of the person they intend to honor nor the values of equality and justice,” he said. “The composition of the Equestrian Statue does not reflect Theodore Roosevelt’s legacy. It is time to move the statue and move forward.”
