Trump Vows to ‘Reclaim’ the ‘Once Great Educational Institutions’ in the U.S.

Former President Donald Trump vowed to “reclaim” the educational system in the United States that was responsible for “indoctrinating America’s youth.”

In a new video, Trump claimed that he will establish the “College Accreditation System,” vowing to “fire the radical left accreditors” at higher education institutions.

“For many years, tuition costs at colleges and universities have been exploding and I mean, absolutely exploding, while academics have been obsessed with indoctrinating America’s youth,” Trump said in his video. “The time has come to reclaim our once great educational institutions from the radical left and we will do that. Our secret weapon will be the College Accreditation System. It’s called accreditation for a reason.”

Trump continued to accuse the accreditors of having “failed” to “ensure that schools are not ripping off students and taxpayers.”

“When I return to the White House, I will fire the radical left accreditors that have allowed our colleges to become dominated by Marxist maniacs and lunatics,” Trump said. “We will then accept applications for new accreditors who will impose real standards on colleges once again, and once and for all.”

Colleges, universities, and other programs in the U.S. are accredited by organizations that have been certified for quality by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA), the United States Department of Education (DoE), or both, according to the CHEA website.

“These standards will include defending the American tradition and western civilization. Protecting free speech, eliminating wasteful administrative positions that drive up costs incredibly. Removing all Marxist diversity, equity, and inclusion bureaucrats. Offering options for accelerated and low-cost degrees, providing meaningful job placement and career services, and implementing college entrance and exit exams to prove that students are actually learning and getting their money’s worth,” the former president continued.

Trump added that he would “direct the Department of Justice to pursue federal civil rights cases” against colleges and universities that “continue to engage in racial discrimination and schools that persist in explicit, unlawful discrimination under the guise of equity.”
