He has been accused of being aligned with the KKK. He has been accused of being a raciest. He has been accused of being alt right. He has been accused of being a white supremacist.
Despite all the never ending lies and bullsh*t here he is supporting the black community. He said “what do you have to lose”? The question should have been what do you have to gain. The answer is….support. Support Obama did not give.
The president is signing a measure that will move the government’s program for promoting historically black colleges and universities, called HBCUs, from the Education Department to direct oversight by the White House.
A senior White House official said Mr. Trump wants to “make HBCUs a priority again.” One goal will be to promote the schools as “strategic partners” in the president’s plan to improve inner cities, the official said.
The president held a meeting in the Oval Office Monday with representatives of more than 60 schools; they also met with Vice President Mike Pence and Education Secretary Betsy DeVos.
“You deserve far more credit than you get, and know that beginning today, this administration is committed to making sure that our historically black colleges and universities get the credit and the attention they deserve,” Mr. Pence told them. “Get ready for a great and energetic partnership in the days ahead.”
During the Obama administration, many HBCU leaders and members of the Congressional Black Caucus were at odds with Mr. Obama on support for the schools. HBCU advocates complained that the administration’s restrictive federal loan policy was hurting the chances of black families sending their children to the schools, and that overall federal coordination and support for the schools was down.
