This is a big win if you ask me.
President Trump recently stated that the Department of Education is looking into the use of the New York Times Magazine’s 1619 Project in public schools.
The 1619 Project wants to change the birthdate of America to 1619 instead of 1776.
Imagine your child comes home telling you “America was founded in 1619”
That would be absolutely insane!
It’s great to see the President cracking down on the liberal agenda to change America’s history.
Department of Education is looking at this. If so, they will not be funded! https://t.co/dHsw6Y6Y3M

In a Sunday morning tweet, Trump said the US Department of Education would investigate whether California schools are using the New York Times' "1619 Project" in public school curriculum https://t.co/XfI0ouQnul

Excellent move, @realDonaldTrump!
The 1619 Project founder has openly said it’s NOT our history
It’s a subjective revision of history to fit a radical marxist worldview & teaches hatred for America
It should NOT be allowed in taxpayer funded classroomshttps://t.co/TiQbO9RtEr

See what our pals over at Fox News Had to say about Trump’s declaration:
President Trump said Sunday that the Department of Education is examining the use of the New York Times Magazine’s 1619 Project in schools, and warned that institutions that teach this alternative narrative of American history could lose federal funding.
The project is based on the premise that American history began in 1619 — cited as the date African slaves arrived in Virginia — and that everything following this should be viewed through that lens. The Pulitzer Center released a school curriculum based on the project, and Trump responded to a tweet stating that California would be using it.
“Department of Education is looking at this,” Trump said. “If so, they will not be funded!”
President Donald Trump won’t allow California schools to incorporate a curriculum based on the controversial New York Times 1619 Project. https://t.co/pNEvt9uiXm

ABC10 News also added to these tory and contributed with these details:
President Trump is threatening to take education money away from California schools.
Trump said Sunday that the Department of Education was investigating allegations that California schools incorporate a curriculum based on the controversial New York Times 1619 Project.
Trump warned that institutions that teach this alternative narrative of American history could lose federal funding.
The NYT collection reframes American history around August 1619, when the first slave ship arrived on America’s shores.
The Times’ 1619 project won a Pulitzer Prize for commentary, and the Pulitzer Center has since developed a package that allows schools to teach the project’s lessons.
The far-left wants to destroy our country and our history.
We must stay vigilant and make sure liberals don’t pump their ideology into our young people.
