Trump hypocritically has canceled his Florida GOP National Convention--while still pushing to reopen schools.

AFT President Randi Weingarten issued the following statement after President Trump devoted part of his daily briefing to reopening schools.

“The president’s hypocrisy knows no bounds. Today he shut down the GOP National Convention in Florida in one breath, while pushing to reopen schools in the next. It seems the lives of kids and teachers are less important to the president than those of GOP delegates.

"Trump is sowing seeds of chaos and confusion so he can fulfill his and Betsy DeVos’ dream of privatizing and voucherizing public education. He's provided no plan and no funding, and has ignored the health experts. Teachers won’t let him get away with it.”​
