Marco Rubio Challenges ‘1619 Project,’ Says Trump’s Defunding Threat Hurts Kids
Marco rubioweighs on President TrumpThe threat to suspend schools that use “The 1619 Project,” claiming POTUS is misguided – but it also calls into question the Project’s view of American history.
We had the Florida senator at Reagan National Airport in DC on Thursday, and he first sided with Trump when he said he thought ‘1619’ was “historically flawed” … telling us that the country was founded in 1776 and not in 1619.
It’s interesting, however, because Rubio doesn’t seem to oppose the goal of the project … which tells the whole truth about slavery being central to US history.
Marco admits that generations of American leaders broke the promise of equality in our Declaration of Independence, and concedes that “Project 1619” is not bad at all.
Thursday, the creator of “1619”, Nikole Hannah-Jones, tell us Trump has no power to dismantle schools, despite his threats, and to blame him for having misled the public in order to create more racial division.
Senator Rubio suggests the president has more power than she thinks and could “make it difficult” for schools, but as he says … Trump would only hurt children for political reasons ‘he was following this path.
