Trump signs order for ‘patriotic education’ as he rails against ‘warped’ American story

Guardian News Sep 17, 2020 Donald Trump has signed an executive order to promote “patriotic education” as he railed against what he called “left-wing” ideology taught in schools that is “ripping apart” friends and families. Speaking at the National Archives, Trump said “The left has warped, distorted, and defiled the American story,” and children should know “they are citizens of the most exceptional nation in the history of the world”. The president was quickly condemned for attempts to restrict the telling of American history in schools to erase a legacy of racism, genocide and imperialism. See related:
