Thank you Mr. President for allowing prayer in school and for making it clear that it's appropriate everywhere as an inalienable right. May the Lord bless and keep our President, his family, and his loyal administration.

Thank you, sir. While anyone can pray at any time without the rest of the world knowing, there have been instances of persecution when groups of students attempted to exercise their faith publicly. Just hope it doesn't evolve into prayer mat rooms and thrice-daily 30 minute breaks for Muslims. Abuses are always possible, but sincere Christians wouldn't do it.

This President's attempt to restore this country to the place that many of us love and remember is the very reason the left despises him. Allowing prayer back in schools will trigger the little anti-God zealots. They will challenge this in Court and take it all the way to the Supreme Court. Should be interesting what is decided. I applaud him though. Most politicians wouldn’t even bother to make prayer a point of interest for them. I cannot express how grateful I am that President Trump has the courage and determination to stand up for the issues that matter to most Americans. God bless him.

This is stunning. Where I grew up in northern Illinois before becoming a permanent Colorado semi-native 45 years ago, prayer in Illinois' public schools was very common. Not only that, we started every day with the pledge of allegiance, including the "one nation under God" part. How cool is this to go back to recognizing God and America in the same sentence.

Thank you President Trump for restoring school prayer. When they removed it from public schools is when we started to see the continual slide into secularism in this country. This country was founded on Judeo Christian principles and it's those principles that have contributed to it's greatness. Keep America Great 2020.

Wasn't it during the '70s that the "Progressive" Left drove prayer out of the public schools? "Obama-era discriminatory federal regulations"? Not his, per se, but during his time? And which federal authority? Sorry, but this smells heavily-spun to me. Besides, since when are public school policies under Executive Branch jurisdiction?

Lets correct that headline:President Trump removes unconstitutional government infringement of student's First Amendment protected rights. The fedgov bureaucrats (aka democrats or leftards) always ignore the clear restrictions the constitution places on government; e.g. the commerce clause used to infiltrate every aspect of life, when that wasn't what it said or meant when it was written. Always. And they need to start feeling personal pain when that happens. It will cut down on the occurrences.

#12, were you right about that last point, there would be no Federal Department of Education. [Which IMHO would be a good thing, but that's for another day.] Tender of Federal funds ALWAYS is conditioned on acceptance of Federal regulations -- which come from the Executive branch. So yes, the DOE can condition Federal funds on total banishment of prayer from a participating school (Obama) or on accepting the right to pray on school property (Trump). The '70s was the era that MANDATORY school prayer was abolished -- through a series of undemocratic court rulings, that I personally agree with, but nevertheless imposed, not adopted. VOLUNTARY, non-coercive prayer was permitted -- until Obama came along.

Some folks wonder why that if praying in school to the most important thing in their lives, God, Country and Family in that order, then Trump should have done this in his first act as President. Now if "educators" are required to teach, then I would be satisfied. But that's not as important as praying to a"supreme being". Some have said often that removing prayers from the schools was the cause of "education"s failure. In a month will all be hunky dory in schools? I doubt it.

I appreciate the clarifications in #16 - however, the schools I attended in Virginia and California during that period were hell-bent on stopping any organized prayer in school functions, or even on school property. Not just "mandatory", but "organized" (even if participation was officially optional). Apologies for my complaint about jurisdiction, as I'm reminded that schools officially fall under the purvey of a Dept. of Education, which (being a cabinet department) does fall under the Executive Branch's authority.

It's been a long time since I was in grade school, I'm 76. The only time I can remember any prayer in school was at a country school in NW Wisconsin. At lunch time, we stood for a silent prayer. I remember our principal was Catholic and he crossed himself. All through 1st thru 12th grade we sang Religious and non religious Christmas song. I never new of any complaints. Literally, every one had values back then. Good times I am speaking of 1950-1962.

Migrants clashed with Mexican troops on a bridge at the Guatemalan border on Saturday, as hundreds of guards also lined the banks of the river to prevent further crossings there. Thousands of Central American migrants tried to push their way across a bridge spanning the Suchiate River between Mexico and Guatemala. Honduran migrants waved their country's flag and sang the national anthem as they approached the bridge. At the height of the confrontation, Guatemalan authorities estimated 2,500 migrants were on the bridge, or attempting to get on it. Scuffles briefly broke out as a group of several hundred mostly Honduran migrants pressed forward to cross,

When I was in eighth grade, a teacher announced we were going to study capital punishment. The methodology for this process was that the class was divided randomly in half, and each side was assigned the task of writing an essay: one half pro, one half con. After we had completed our essays, the students engaged in open debate about this complex issue. Perhaps this sort of objective process of critical thinking is still practiced in some American schools, but it surely seems scarce. In its place, secular liberalism, and "progressivism," have become the Church of the American State, administered through public schools.

If the Trump era has taught us anything, it's that large numbers of white people in the United States are motivated at least in part by racism in the voting booth. Donald Trump ran an openly racist campaign for president, calling Mexicans rapists and criminals, regularly retweeting white supremacists and at least initially balking at repudiating former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke. Trump made it clear in his campaign that "Make America Great Again" meant that America was greater when white people's power was more sweeping and more secure. White voters approved of that message by a whopping 58 percent to 37 percent.

President Donald Trump made a stark appeal to black Americans during the 2016 election when he asked, “What have you got to lose?” Three years later, black Americans have rendered their verdict on his presidency with a deeply pessimistic assessment of their place in the United States under a leader seen by an overwhelming majority as racist. The findings come from a Washington Post-Ipsos poll of African Americans nationwide, which reveals fears about whether their children will have a fair shot to succeed and a belief that white Americans don’t fully appreciate the discrimination that black people experience.
