Every day the American people learn more and more about how corrupt and evil the Obama administration really was!!
Trump administration officials have announced that an Obama-era policy aimed at diversifying schools will be reversed soon, according to The New York Times.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions made the official announcement Tuesday afternoon.
“The American people deserve to have their voices heard and a government that is accountable to them. When issuing regulations, federal agencies must abide by constitutional principles and follow the rules set forth by Congress and the President,” Sessions said. “In previous administrations, however, agencies often tried to impose new rules on the American people without any public notice or comment period, simply by sending a letter or posting a guidance document on a website. That’s wrong, and it’s not good government.”
Officials said the reversal will encourage a race-neutral process when admitting students to elementary and secondary schools and universities.
Schools could also lose funding from the Education Department if they don’t practice race-blind admission processes.
Education Secretary Betsy DeVos said that “I think the bottom line here is that we want an environment where all students have an opportunity, an equal opportunity, to get a great education,”
Liberals have used Twitter to defend affirmative action, some implying that the Trump administration doesn’t know how to use the policy:
Right-wingers refuse to understand this issue.
Affirmative action doesn’t “direct” the use of race in college additions. It REGULATES HOW IT CAN BE USED.
If we have no laws on it, people still use race in admissions. They just use their own personal biases instead of the law. https://t.co/y4ZLOsFPuJ

Others directly challenged the president, arguing that affirmative action aids in leveling the playing field for students from diverse backgrounds:
June 23, 2016: Supreme Court upholds affirmative action in 4-3 decision.
Aug. 19, 2016: Trump asks black voters: “What the hell do you have to lose?” by voting for him.

If you ask me black citizens have the same rights as everyone else. “Diversity” in Colloges and Universities Guidelines are being abused!
Elisabeth Dee DeVos is an American businesswoman, philanthropist and government official serving as the 11th and current United States Secretary of Education since 2017.
But she as well as other cabinet members of President Trump is not immune to constant attacks from the liberals and their strongest weapon the MSM!
The fact is that they want to help our country get better!
