News you need to knowThe media is too busy keeping up with President Trump’s conspiracy theory tweets to notice many of the controversial acts of his administration.
Why this is not normalInstead of talking about how Trump has, without evidence, accused President Obama of wiretapping, let’s take note that:
Education Secretary Betsy DeVos doesn’t understand that historically black colleges and universities were a direct response to racial segregation, not marketplace choice.
Schools are beginning to ban children from using the bathroom that corresponds to their gender identity. This will lead to a decline in safety for trans kids.
Trump proposed a $54 billion uptick in vague military spending by slashing social and environmental budgets. For example, Trump proposed cutting the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) by 18 percent. The biggest cut will be to NOAA’s satellite division, which provides 90 percent of weather forecast info. Cutting this budget line will make it harder to keep Americans safe from extreme weather.
Remember the uproar Trump made about Hillary Clinton using a personal server for government business? Vice President Pence did the same thing, and his AOL email was hacked.
But hey, let’s all keep looking at how Trump thinks that a former president illegally, absurdly wire-tapped him.
