Trump Threatens To Defund California Schools That Teach ‘1619 Project’

The Democrat Party and the liberal education apparatus is attempting to change history and paint a picture of a racist founding of the United States.

Yes, slavery existed at the founding of our nation as it existed around the world at the time, but that is not the basis on which the nation is formed and President Donald Trump is not having it, The Daily Mail reported.

Donald Trump threatened to defund schools in California that use the New York Times’ 1619 Project’ in the public school curriculum.

On Sunday Trump retweeted a message from an unverified account saying the project would be taught in schools and shared: ‘Department of Education is looking at this. If so, they will not be funded!’ 

The Pulitzer-Prize winning collection of essays, photo essays, poems, and short and short fiction pieces published last year seeks to reframe American history as starting on 1619, when the first slaves from Africa arrived to Virginia, rather than 1776, when the founding fathers declared independence from Britain.

“California has implemented the 1619 project into the public schools. soon you wont recognize America,” the Twitter user said.

“Department of Education is looking at this. If so, they will not be funded!” the president said in a tweet on Sunday.

Republican Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton has crafted the Saving American History Act of 2020, a bill that would prevent schools from teaching the “1619 project.”

It would “prohibit the use of federal funds to teach the 1619 Project by K-12 schools or school districts. Schools that teach the 1619 Project would also be ineligible for federal professional-development grants.”

This comes a day after the president said that he would stop Critical Race Theory in federal agencies, a theory that says everyone is racist.

“It has come to the President’s attention that Executive Branch agencies have spent millions of taxpayer dollars to date ‘training’ government workers to believe divisive, antiAmerican propaganda,” a White House memo sent by Director of the Office of Management and Budget, Russell Vought, said.

“For example, according to press reports, employees across the Executive Branch have been required to attend trainings where they are told that ‘virtually all White people contribute to racism’ or where they are required to say that they ‘benefit from racism.’ According to press reports, in some cases these training have further claimed that there is racism embedded in the belief that America is the land of opportunity or the belief that the most qualified person should receive a job,” it said.

“These types of ‘trainings’ not only run counter to the fundamental beliefs for which our Nation has stood since its inception, but they also engender division and resentment within the Federal workforce. We can be proud that as an employer, the Federal government has employees of all races, ethnicities, and religions. We can be proud that Americans from all over the country seek to join our workforce and dedicate themselves to public service. We can be proud of our continued efforts to welcome all individuals who seek to serve their fellow Americans as Federal employees. However, we cannot accept our employees receiving training that seeks to undercut our core values as Americans and drive division within our workforce,” the memo said.

“The President has directed me to ensure that Federal agencies cease and desist from using taxpayer dollars to fund these divisive, un-American propaganda training sessions. Accordingly, to that end, the Office of Management and Budget will shortly issue more detailed guidance on implementing the President’s directive. In the meantime, all agencies are directed to begin to identify all contracts or other agency spending related to any training on ‘critical race theory/9 ‘white privilege,’ or any other training or propaganda effort that teaches or suggests either (1) that the United States is an inherently racist or evil country or (2) that any race or ethnicity is inherently racist or evil. In addition, all agencies should begin to identify all available avenues within the law to cancel any such contracts and/or to divert Federal dollars away from these unAmerican propaganda training sessions,” it said.

The Democrats are determined to promote their racist theories but as long as we have President Trump in the White House they are not going to succeed.
