Trump Plans to Denounce Focus on Slavery, Racism in Schools

Source: Bloomberg

President Donald Trump plans to denounce school curricula that emphasize the impact of slavery and racism on American history during a roundtable discussion at the National Archives on Thursday.

“The president will deliver remarks on his administration’s efforts to promote a more balanced, accurate, and patriotic curricula in America’s schools,” the White House said in a statement.

That includes criticizing what the White House calls “the liberal indoctrination of America’s youth.” Trump is expected to explicitly fault the New York Times’ “1619 Project.” The Pulitzer-Prize winning public school curriculum developed by the newspaper orients American history from the date that the first slave ship arrived in what later became the U.S.

Trump has sought to rally his core supporters, who are disproportionately White, ahead of the November election. He trails Democrat Joe Biden in polls, and he has tried to make his demands for “law and order” amid sometimes violent national protests over racism and police brutality a central issue in the campaign.

Pennsylvania judge will likely reevaluate 'unconstitutional' $1 million bail set for Ricardo Munoz protesters

The judge who set a $1 million bail for protesters who were arrested during demonstrations following a fatal police shooting in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, will likely reconsider after widespread criticism, including from the state's lieutenant governor who deemed it "blatantly unconstitutional."

Lancaster police arrested 12 adults and one juvenile after about 100 people gathered outside the city's police station Sunday following the police killing of Ricardo Munoz, 27, who authorities say chased an officer with a knife.

Police said the demonstration devolved into a riot that caused damage to the station, vandalism to local businesses and a small fire, and officers used "chemical munitions" to disperse the crowd.

At least seven of them were held on $1 million bail, according to police. Magisterial District Judge Bruce Roth, who set the initial bail, per LancasterOnline, will hold a hearing Thursday for defendants who filed petitions requesting bail modification.


Please, a moment of appreciation for this queen (EDITED).

A small spark of good news to share — my 100-year-old grandmother, a Florida resident, has already mailed in her ballot: “I wanted to make sure I got my vote in against Trump. I hate him!” Please, a moment of appreciation for this queen.
