Trump Further Annihilates Obama’s “Legacy” By Removing These Guidelines for College Admissions

Published

Barack Obama

One of the hallmarks of the Trump administration has been their dedication to destroying practically everything former President Barack Obama accomplished while in office, and it’s a rather glorious sight to behold.

The vast majority of what Obama accomplished while in office was unconstitutional and the result of an abuse of his executive powers, many policies actually aggravating issues that have resulted in a greater divide among Americans. Seeing these policies get rescinded is truly a blessing.

The latest regulations to get the axe involves guidelines set by the previous occupant of the White House for college admissions regarding the race of enrolling students.

The guidelines that will be eliminated called for colleges to seek ways to promote racial diversity without being discriminatory in their admissions. Here is an excerpt from the 2011 guidance on race in admissions:

When an institution is taking an individual student’s race into account in an admissions or selection process, it should conduct an individualized, holistic review of all applicants. That is, the institution should evaluate each applicant’s qualifications in a way that does not insulate any student, based on his or her race, from comparison to all other applicants. An institution may assign different weights to different diversity factors based on their importance to the program. … But race cannot be given so much weight that applicants are defined primarily by their race and are largely accepted or rejected on that basis.
In summary, the guidelines give institutions options on how to promote racial diversity without specifically targeting and isolating race as a primary factor in the admissions decision.

Examples of how to accomplish that goal include targeted recruiting or the use of socioeconomic or other demographic identifiers to draw students from different racial backgrounds.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the Trump administration believes the Obama-era guidelines “go beyond Supreme Court precedent on the issue and mislead schools to believe that legal forms of affirmative action are simpler to achieve than what the law allows.”

The Department of Justice is currently investigating whether Harvard’s use of race in admissions has resulted in the school holding Asian-American students to a higher standard than students of other ethnicities.

As conservatives, we fully support the concept of equal opportunity for people of all ethnicities and colors, but the danger in doing affirmative action is that you risk creating a protected class, going beyond the defense of a person’s basic rights and actually giving them more rights than other groups.

This doesn’t solve the problem. It makes it worse.

Hopefully Trump’s actions here will prove to be positive in correcting this issue.

What a horrible thing to say!

We’re just over two weeks into the new year and we already have a quote that may hold up as the most ridiculous of 2021. Remember, this guy was elected to office. What does that say about the people who voted for him? It’s because of people like Goofy McGoofball in the clip below that America has become such a liberal cesspool. During a Monday appearance on CNN, McGoofball said, “You know I was thinking, the Guard is 90 some-odd percent male. Only about 20 percent of white males voted for Biden. You’ve got to figure that in the Guard, which is predominantly more conservative…there are probably not more than 25 percent of the people that are there protecting us that voted for Biden. The other 75 percent are in the class that would be in the large class of folks who might want to do something. There were military people and police who took oaths to defend the Constitution, who didn’t do it and were in the insurrection. So it does concern me.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/tomselliott/status/1351196676036435972?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1351196676036435972%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fvideo-democrat-argues-national-guard-members-who-voted-for-trump-may-be-a-threat-to-bidens-safety%2F From The Daily Wire: Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (CA) added to the already deep divide in our nation during a online meeting with constituents in San Francisco on Saturday, claiming the Trump supporters who breached the Capitol on Wednesday chose their “whiteness over democracy.” Pelosi said, “When that assault was taking place on the Capitol, 3,865 people in our country died of the coronavirus, many of them people of color because of the injustice of it all. The next day, on Thursday, 4,000 people died of the coronavirus. Why? Because decisions were made at the highest level, months before in the Oval Office, of denial, distortion, delay, calling it a ‘hoax.’” She added, “I thought it was going to be an epiphany for…

WATCH: Melania Trump Delivers Powerful & Moving Farewell Message As First Lady

Gorgeous, as always!

She wasn’t unbearable like Hillary Clinton. She wasn’t as polarizing as Michelle Obama. But because she is married to Donald Trump, Melania Trump is the worst first lady in American history. That’s how the mainstream media will remember the woman who speaks five languages fluently; the former model whose mere presence is a sight for sore eyes. FLOTUS’s farewell message is one that should be replayed for decades to come. From New York Post: First lady Melania Trump on Monday released a nearly seven-minute farewell message urging Americans to choose “love over hatred” and “peace over violence.” The video filmed at the White House was posted to Twitter fewer than 48 hours before President Trump leaves office Wednesday at noon. “As Donald and I conclude our time in the White House, I think of all the people I have taken home in my heart and their incredible stories of love, patriotism and devotion,” she said.
