The head of one of America’s largest teachers unions said Wednesday that Donald Trump is creating “bullying environments” in schools nationwide that will take decades to repair.
Randi Weingarten, president of the 1.6 million member American Federation of Teachers (AFT), made her remarks during a conference call with reporters set up by the Democratic National Committee.
“What we’ve seen with Donald Trump is that there is now a new phenomenon in schools called the ‘Trump Effect,'” Weingarten said. “It will take decades to overcome the way Donald Trump speaks and promotes violence, xenophobia and racism. This is creating bullying environments in schools across the country.”
“As teachers, we’re going to have to work harder to help an entire generation of children recover from the hateful rhetoric that Trump has aimed at immigrants, Muslims and Black Lives Matter protestors,” she added.
Obama is the lead bully. His way or no way. This is on him.
Bullshit! bullying has been going on for ever! If anyone is to blame, it's the parents!. For not setting an example to their brats, on how to behave! The liberals are also at fault! These kids today attack teachers, and the progressives don't even slap their wrist!
So, Trump has been running for President for the last 200 years? This woman is an idiot. This is the kind of crap that is brainwashing our children.
Obviously this loudmouth squirrel is a hillarycrat. Someone should inform this idiot that bullying has been going on about as long as schools have been here and it has not by any means been promoted or enhanced by MrTrump. It's not been just a few months ago all we heard was kids are killing themselves because they have been unmercifully bullied either on the internet or in person, not one time was Donald Trump mentioned in this.....WHY? If he is the newest culprit in the left's newest blame game..... Simply because these evil useless idiots are going to make up and cast blame on anything and everything they can dream up to discredit the Donald and to keep yet another lunatic liberal president kind of like the current idiot in there now. Get ready folks the silly season is upon us,the fun and games are coming
No, we need to get rid of the Teacher's Union!!
She needs to be hospitalized immediately for her delusional behavior. She should not be allowed to work near children for fear that she might cause them harm with her twisted way of thinking.
Bullying has been around at least since Cain slew Abel. See that's what happens when they don't allow the Bible in school, she missed that important history lesson.
This makes a lot of sense. I was wondering who was the fault of my being bullied 65 years ago... Now I find out it was Trump's fault. ROLL EYES!
EXACTLY BW. Isn't it pathetic? The way they blame Trump for EVERYTHING, including the violence against his own supporters???? SERIOUSLY? It's the same way they used to blame a woman for getting raped---------SHE brought it on herself...the WAY she was dressed....she shouldn't have been out at 2:00AM.....etc etc etc......
I always love it when Judge Judy does it ;o)))))
Marilyn, what you said with Judge Judy is all true.
I turn 80 years on 14 May, and can assure everyone that school bullying was alive and well when
I was a kid. This was long before Trump or the open mouthed individual in the picture above. The
only way to deal with a bully is beat the crap out of them
Hey....you're just a young pup. Obviously bullying has been around since Cain & Abel ;o))
