The president clearly does not value education. After all, Trump’s daily intelligence debriefings that are done in cartoon style with single sentences were just too much reading for him. POTUS commanded that his staff move from daily debriefings to half-a-week debriefings. Regretfully, the apples did not fall far from the Trump apple tree, and these apples certainly did not end up on the teachers’ desks.
In a morning tweet, VOX journalist Aaron Rupar said that Donald Trump Jr. noted “loser teachers” had “indoctrinated kids.” He was referring to the Denver, CO teachers on strike for inadequate, erratic pay:
‘@DonaldJTrumpJr‘s message to young conservatives: “Keep up that fight. Bring it to your schools. You don’t have to be indoctrinated by these loser teachers that are trying to sell you on socialism from birth.”‘

One of the district’s teachers had to sleep in her car in the parking lot of the school where she taught, because she needed to sublet her room to pay her bills. The Chicago Teachers Union tweeted its message back to Trump the younger. The union showed how important education is when it wrote this beautiful zinger:
‘Donald Trump Jr. called teachers “losers” today. Must mean we’re doing something right.’
