Donald Trump Is Pulling The Plug On Michelle Obama’s Let Girls Learn Initiative — How Awful!

michelle obama education program canceled

Wow, Donald Trump must really hate women.

On Monday, it was revealed that the Trump administration is officially discontinuing the girls’ education program set up by Michelle Obama during her tenure as First Lady. How awful!

Back in 2015, Let Girls Learn was launched in order to help facilitate educational opportunities for young girls in developing nations. However, according to an internal document obtained by CNN, LGL is ceasing operation immediately. Apparently, some aspects from the program will remain, but employees for the initiative have been ordered to stop referring to the organization as Let Girls Learn.

Agency director Sheila Crowley wrote to Peace Corps workers:

“Moving forward, we will not continue to use the ‘Let Girls Learn’ brand or maintain a stand-alone program… We are so proud of what ‘Let Girls Learn’ accomplished and we have all of you to thank for this success.”

Damn. Where was Ivanka Trump when this decision was made?? Didn’t she vow to protect women’s interests in the White House?? Shame on her and her father.

Ironically, this update came on the same day Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue visited an elementary school in order to announce changes in the former First Lady’s National School Lunch Program. While he didn’t reveal specifics, the Secretary did reveal that the change would provide “regulatory flexibility for the National School Lunch Program.” Huh. Something tells us pizza sauce is about to be considered a vegetable again.

Let’s take a moment of silence for all of Mrs. Obama’s hard work being flushed down the toilet. Sorry, girl!
