(NRCC News) – President Trump is in full presidential campaign mode now. He’s been giving speeches and promising to save the country, once again, from the radical left. This time around it seems different, however. Trump now knows how deep the swamp really goes and just how infected our federal government truly is.
Trump knows exactly what needs to be done and he’s not wasting any time getting right to it. The American people are sick and tired of the radical left’s permanent administrative state and their anti-American, woke agenda. Not to mention the blatant corruption that career politicians have been engaged in for years.
On Monday, Trump gave a speech in Davenport Iowa during which he highlighted his platform on education issues.
The public education system has been under fire since the COVID pandemic exposed just how radicalized it has become. School districts all around the country have become indoctrination camps run by little school board tyrants. Many parents have become tuned in to the overreach of the federal government in their children’s education and now Trump is promising to address that if elected in 2024.
In his remarks, Trump explained that his administration had done extensive research into the possibility of dissolving the Department of Education altogether and reallocating its functions to the states. This prompted enthusiastic applause from the audience.
“We studied it very closely and I was getting ready to do it, pull the trigger,” he said. “The long-term goal, but now it’s a short-term goal, of breaking up the federal Department of Education and redistributing its functions to the states.”
I will break up the Federal department of education and redistribute its functions to the states. – President Donald J. Trump.⁰

Americans have lost faith in the public school system since COVID when school boards made it clear they were more concerned with falling in line with federal recommendations and “orders” rather than what parents wanted or what was best for the children.
Then there’s the issue of Critical Race Theory, transgenderism, climate change and other left-wing ideologies being forced on impressionable school children all of which are being pushed and promoted by the Biden regime and Democrats.
Whoever is serious about winning the Republican nomination is going to have to address the failing Department of Education.
Iowa is a key battleground state that conducts its primaries early on and has typically been a barometer to measure the strength of candidates. Trump’s visit came after Florida Governor Ron DeSantis made an appearance in the state.
DeSantis has not yet made an official declaration of his candidacy but is widely expected to throw his hat in the ring. His visit to Iowa is all but confirmation of this.
Others challenging President Trump for the Republican nomination include former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley, tech mogul Vivek Ramaswamy, businessman Perry Johnson, and former Vice President Mike Pence.

The Department of Education was established in1857 to collect data and stats about the nations schools. It became a Cabinet-level department in 1980 under Pres. Carter. There is no provision in the Constitution for the Federal Government to control education. It has become a bloated bureaucratic mess because the natural tendency of government is to grow itself. By returning it to a data gathering and advisory function and allowing the states to do the best they can will make education more responsive to the parents who have children. I grew up in the 50’s when the three R’s and civics were supreme. I think that those requirements served America well.
I would offer a better idea, and it’s something you already hinted at. Education is a states’ rights issue, so why involve the federal government in it at all, even as a data gathering and advisory entity? If those things are needed why would the federal government be the only possible entity that could fulfill that role? It’s as though you are contradicting your own major premise.
What a bunch of garbage you conservatives write about. You should try watching MSNBC and getting the truth instead of the crap you see from that Carlson guy.
Don’t know how I wound up on your email list but generally delete your emails unread. Sitting on a car dealership this morning so I decided to read your crap. It was something to go.
You can delete me if you want. Nothing will be lost.
I am NOT an American, but old enough to read your message and qulify it as horse manure or lets just say “manure” as involving such a noble animal with the rhetoric coming from your arse, would be an insult to that animal. You are however talking out of your arse and wisdom is not endowned on you, but here it is anyway; “If you want succesful in bussines, stay as far away from politics as “Politics is nothing but a beautiful name for a very, very dirty bussines !!”
Well, first of all, if you think MSNBC is a legit news source, you are nothing but a government-educated fool. Second, all you did in your post was simply to say you don’t like Carlson or conservative politics. This is all people like you ever do, probably because it’s all you’re capable of; you NEVER actually debate any ideas on ANYTHING… If you want to prove me wrong, you will need to start by being SPECIFIC about what exactly you find so objectionable.
For me, I don’t want centralized government control over anything where there is no Constitutional warrant. If something is not contained within the 18 enumerated powers of Article I Section 8, then by the 10th amendment it’s an area that falls under the jurisdiction of the states, not the federal government. And, since education is NOT listed among those 18 enumerated powers, then it’s a states’ rights issue. So, in that respect, Trump is right, and you’re out to lunch.
You are right in that in deleting you, nothing would be lost. The reason is not because of political disagreement, but because you haven’t actually said anything significant… It’s not possible to lose anything when there was nothing there to lose to begin with.
Jeffrey, you are so Nieve, it isn’t even funny You don’t know how to get information. In school
You were dumb enough to believe everything they said and not research it.
