My friends our President has done it once again!
President Trump recently announced he will create a commission to create “patriotic education”.
The Executive Order will be called the “1776 Commission” which is probably a knock at the 1619 project (A project created by liberals to change the founding date of our country to 1619).
I agree with our President, the youth of America shouldn’t be poisoned by the liberal narrative that America is such a horrible country.
NEW: Trump announces the 1776 Commission, aimed at establishing what he calls "patriotic" and "pro-America" education that will celebrate the "miracle" of American history.
Re-examinations of U.S. history, he said, are "ideological poison." https://t.co/0ATeKEyO2p

The New York Times covered the story and added these details:
President Trump escalated his attacks on “left-wing demonstrators” and “far-left mobs” on Thursday, portraying himself as a defender of American heritage against revolutionary fanatics and arguing for a new “pro-American” curriculum in the nation’s schools.
Speaking at the National Archives Museum, Mr. Trump vowed to counter what he called an emerging classroom narrative that “America is a wicked and racist nation,” and he said he would create a new “1776 Commission” to help “restore patriotic education to our schools.” The president reiterated his condemnations of demonstrators who tear down monuments to historical American figures, and he even sought to link the Democratic presidential nominee, former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., to the removal of a founding father’s statue in Mr. Biden’s home state, Delaware.
“Our heroes will never be forgotten,” Mr. Trump said. “Our youth will be taught to love America.”
President Trump believes our youth must have love and gratitude in their heart towards their country.
The left-wing believes we should hate our country and destroy its history.
President Trump will sign an Executive Order to create “The 1776 Commission” which will promote “patriotic education”.
It’s time schools STOP teaching kids to hate their own country! Thank you, President @realDonaldTrump!

USA Today also chipped in:
President Donald Trump on Thursday accused Democrats and educators of attempting a “liberal indoctrination of America’s youth” through alternative views of the nation’s history, while the subjects of those attacks said he is fueling racial divisions in an election year.
“Our mission is to defend the legacy of America’s founding, the virtue of America’s heroes, and the nobility of the American character,” Trump said during what aides billed as the first “White House Conference on American History.”
While Trump called for “patriotic education” and a “pro-American curriculum” in the nation’s schools, opponents cast the president as a struggling re-election candidate who is seeking votes by trying to divide people along racial and cultural lines.
In his education speech, Trump attributed street violence in part to schools, claiming that “the left-wing rioting and mayhem are the direct result of decades of left-wing indoctrination in our schools.” He also said “the left has launched a vicious and violent assault on law enforcement – the universal symbol of the rule of law in America.”
