President Trump is threatening to cut funding to California schools.
In a tweet Sunday, Pres. Trump said the U.S. Department of Education would investigate whether California schools are using the New York Times’ “1619 Project.” He said if they are, “they will not be funded.”
The message came after the president on Friday banned federal agencies from conducting racial-sensitivity training related to “white privilege” and “critical race theory.”
Do those concerns about cancel culture and McCarthyism and censorship only apply to the left or do they apply to the POTUS threatening to investigate schools for teaching American journalism? Silence is deafening here. #1619Project https://t.co/rrRf8rLdZ0
