Trump Vows To Cut Funding To CRT Schools If Elected

(TargetDailyNews.com) – Former President Donald Trump declared that he would withhold federal funding for schools that push Critical Race Theory and transgender ideology if he is reelected president in 2024.

Speaking at the Moms for Joyful Warriors summit on Friday, June 30, Trump said that he would sign an executive order “on day one,” cutting federal funding from schools that push Critical Race Theory, “transgender insanity” as well as other “inappropriate racial, sexual or political content” being taught to children.

The former president also said that he would get rid of the 1619 project, an endeavor started by New York Times journalist Nikole Hannah-Jones meant to recast America’s founding as occuring when the first slaves arrived on North American shores. The initiative has received criticism from some of the country’s top historians, both left and right-wing. American historian Gordon Wood called the project “wrong in so many ways.”

Trump also said that far-left ideologies such as Marxism, socialism, communism and fascism are being pushed in schools, and that the “Marxist left” has become a “cult.”

The former president claimed that he would be able to use the Establishment Clause and the Free-Exercise Clause of the Constitution to enable the Department of Justice to legally pursue schools that push left-wing ideological pedagogy onto children.

Trump said that he would implement specific measures such as abolishing K-12 teacher tenure to remove teachers that push far-left ideology, and merit pay to award teachers who are doing their jobs correctly. He also said that he would implement complete and total curriculum transparency so that parents can see everything their kids are being taught, as well as adopting a program for “universal school choice.”

Trump also advocated for being able to democratically elect and fire school principals, as opposed to having them chosen by the already democratically elected school boards. He further urged parents to pay attention to local education politics, such as PTA meetings and school board elections.
