Trump 58 Economy Poll

President Donald Trump announced this week that his administration will lift a ban that had prevented federal funds from going to faith-based black colleges and universities, as his Department of Justice (DOJ) reviewed the rule and found it to be unconstitutional.

“Today, I’m thrilled to announce another major action we’re taking to protect HBCUs,” Trump said on Tuesday to commemorate National Historically Black College and Universities (HBCUs) Week at a conference in Washington, D.C.

“Previously, federal law restricted more than 40 faith-based HBCUs and seminaries from fully accessing federal support for capital improvement projects. This meant that your faith-based institutions, which have made such extraordinary contributions to America, were unfairly punished for their religious beliefs,” Trump added.

Faith-based universities will no longer be discriminated against because of the actions of the Trump administration, as an antiquated federal rule will be reversed.

“This week, our Department of Justice has published an opinion declaring such discriminatory restrictions as unconstitutional. It was a big step. And from now on, faith-based HBCUs will enjoy equal access to federal support,” Trump said.

The DOJ made a determination issued on Aug. 15 that restricting the Department of Education’s “authority to guarantee loans for capital improvements at historically black colleges and universities ‘in which a substantial portion of its functions is subsumed in a religious mission’ violates the Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment.”

They cited established case law to make their point, as the DOJ referenced Trinity Lutheran Church of Columbia, Inc. v. Comer and Locke v. Davey in their decision. They claim that those Supreme Court rulings “establish that the government may not deny generally available funding to a sectarian institution because of its religious character.” The government ultimately has the “discretion to choose what activities to fund” as long as their behavior is non-discriminatory.

This announcement coincidentally coincides with the release of an article from Jemele Hill in The Atlantic in which she argued that more must be done by the black athletic community to help HBCUs. Hill, the serial race baiter who once called Trump a white supremacist before she was forced out of ESPN, will not likely be giving any credit to Trump for his push on behalf of HBCUs.

Despite being widely maligned as a racist by Democratic Party officials and the fake news media, Trump continues to look out for the interests of African-Americans and other minority voters. He is making a strong case for minority voters to abandon the Democrats and vote Republican in 2020.

“The fierce dedication to strengthening HBCUs is a core part of my administration’s unwavering focus on the project of national renewal,” Trump said at the conference.

Trump also noted that he has invalidated “ruinous trade policies that devastated millions of hard-working families and inflicted deep economic pain on many African-American communities.”

Right now, Trump has approval from roughly 10 percent of the African-American electorate, and he hopes that moves such as increasing funding for HBCUs will raise that number substantially before the 2020 presidential election rolls around.

TOUCHING: Trump Supporters Carry World War II Veteran at Arizona Rally

The men recognize the sacrifice of America’s greatest generation.

Published

on

A touching moment occurred at a Trump rally in Arizona on Wednesday, when two men were seen carrying an elderly World War II veteran to designated seating at the event.

The patriot could be identified as a World War II Veteran through his hat.

Video of the event showed the love the Trump rally crowd expressed for the rare veteran. Rallygoers chanted “USA, USA,” quite possibly recognizing the fellow as a veteran of the World War from his hat.

In an era where fewer and fewer World War II veterans are living and able to recount their experiences fighting in the greatest war in history, it’s fitting that the public takes as many chances as possible to thank those who placed their lives on the line in the war that preceded a half century of American prosperity.

President Trump himself saw video of the touching scene en route to the venue for the event.

Fittingly, the rally is being held at Phoenix’s Veterans Memorial Coliseum. Pre-event footage showed a possibly record setting crowd for a Trump rally in Arizona.

President Trump is set to begin his remarks at 7PM Arizona time. He’ll boost Republican Senator Martha McSally, who faces a re-election battle in the state in 2020.

Arizona is likely also to be a competitive state in the presidential election. The once solid-red state has shifted purple in recent years as the state’s population has increased exponentially.
