President Trump will be taking action on an executive order that will affect education—specifically, Historically Black Colleges (via Red Alert Politics).
The President was shocked to learn the lack of funding HBCU received under President Obama.
Check it out:
Jarrett Carter Jr., an HBCU advocate, wrote on HBCU Digest that Trump might be able to accomplish more in regards to higher education for black students than President Obama was able to do during his entire tenure.
“It’s not fair that in the last 24 hours, Trump and his cabinet has generated more goodwill between the White House and black colleges than Obama was disinclined to even feign in three commencement speeches and eight national HBCU week conferences — none of which he attended,” Carter Jr. wrote on Saturday. “And with one executive order unique to HBCU federal support, Trump could become one of the greatest advocates black colleges have ever seen.”
Exit polling gave the impression that an order on HBCU funding would be well-received amongst young black males, who gave Trump the most support of any African-American group prior to the election.
