Trump says he needs to sign an executive order guaranteeing Free Speech

❝ President Donald Trump vowed Saturday to sign an executive order requiring colleges and universities to “support free speech” in order to be eligible for federal research dollars…Trump was referring to Hayden Williams, a conservative activist who recently made headlines after he was allegedly punched in the face at the University of California Berkeley earlier this week.

❝ Neither Williams nor the man suspected of punching him are students at UC Berkeley…The University of California Police Department said they had identified the suspect as Zachary Greenberg, and that he had been arrested and booked. Police added that the case would be presented to the district attorney’s office for “consideration of the filing of criminal charges.”

Which is how the Law and Order folks in local police departments are supposed to handle incidents like this when they learn of them.

Just one of numerous times the Fake President forgets he already swore to defend the US Constitution at his Inaugural. That includes the Bill of Rights. More often, he chooses to forget the values called for by that document – and US history – by his own words and deeds.

  1. Red Herring says:

    President Donald Trump will sign an executive order Thursday on a cause célèbre for conservative activists: upholding free speech on college campuses.
    But the executive order won’t do much more than reiterate the Trump administration wants schools to follow existing laws on free inquiry and direct the federal agencies that fund research to make sure that they’re doing so. It’s a largely a symbolic move meant to satisfy a key demand of Trump’s conservative base. https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2019/3/21/18275828/trump-executive-order-campus-free-speech The order — which Trump is set to sign later Thursday — might still be vague in terms of policy. But it sends a message that Trump is eager to embrace the priorities of conservative activists, including those upset about being banned from college campuses.
