LIBERAL MEDIA BIAS: Little Coverage Given Of Trump Signing A Bill Permanently Funding Minority Colleges

The Democrat media is so focused on defeating President Trump that they won’t bother reporting on the good things he is doing for minorities—Democrats’ key constituents.

President Trump just did something good for Black, Hispanic and Native American college students, yet the media seems to be ignoring it almost entirely.

Early on in his Presidency, Donald Trump made Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) a priority by signing an Executive Order moving the federal initiative on HBCUs into the White House from the Department of Education.

“This was something that, frankly, the black college community assumed would have been easily accomplished with the first African-American president,” said Johnny C. Taylor Jr., the then-president and CEO of the Thurgood Marshall College Fund at the time, “and after over eight years of repeated requests, to think that within 45 days of his presidency we were able to convene all of the [HBCU] presidents in the Oval Office [Monday] and [on Tuesday] a subset of us were able to come back and sign the executive order the same day that the [president] is preparing for first State of the Union address.”

On Thursday, the day after Democrats in the House of Representative voted to impeach him, President Trump signed the FUTURE Act into law.

“The bill authorizes $85 million a year for historically black colleges and universities, along with $100 million for Hispanic-serving institutions, $30 million for tribal schools and $40 million for a variety of other minority-serving institutions,” reported NewsMax.

“When I took office, I promised to fight for HBCUs, and my administration continues to deliver,” Trump said. “A few months ago, funding for HBCUs was in jeopardy. But the White House and Congress came together and reached a historic agreement.”

The bill restores $255 million in annual funding that lapsed Sept. 30 after the Congress failed to renew it.

President Donald Trump on Thursday signed a bipartisan bill that will permanently provide more than $250 million a year to the nation’s historically black colleges and universities, along with dozens of other institutions that serve large shares of minority students.

In signing the bill, Trump said historically black schools have “never had better champions in the White House.”

“Today, President Donald J. Trump signed H.R. 5363, the FUTURE Act, into law,” stated the United Negro College Fund (UNCF) on its website.

“This landmark legislation permanently extends mandatory funding for Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCUs), Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs), and other Minority-Serving Institutions (MSIs) to increase their science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) outcomes, among other things.” stated the United Negro College Fund (UNCF) on its website,” the UNCF stated.

“The FUTURE Act was UNCF’s, and the HBCU community’s, number one priority,” said UNCF president and CEO Dr. Michael L. Lomax. “We thank the President for signing this extremely essential bill into law.”

Unfortunately, there is little to no coverage from the Democrat media on the signing of the FUTURE Act.

In fact, although the ABC News and the New York Times republished the Associated Press article, a search of the “FUTURE Act“, as well as “HBCU” on CNN’s website yields no coverage of the bill being signed into law.

The same searches on CBS News, MSNBC’s website, also yielded zero results.
