Oh no! The Donald Trump administration is reportedly discontinuing ‘Let Girls Learn,’ a project championed by Michelle Obama that facilitates educational programs for women in third world countries. Voters are devastated by the news, and have taken to Twitter to protest.
This is yet another example of how Donald Trump, 70, shows his lack of support towards women. Michelle Obama‘s, 53, passion project, Let Girls Learn, is preparing to say its final goodbye, following a CNN report that claims the Trump administration is discontinuing the education initiative as of today. “Moving forward, we will not continue to use the ‘Let Girls Learn’ brand or maintain a stand-alone program,” discloses an email sent to Peace Corps employees this week. Voters are rightfully shocked, confused, and above all, infuriated by the news.

Donald can't get anything accomplished, so he tears down everyone else's accomplishments like a grade school bully. "Let Girls Learn"

RT if you prefer our tax dollars were used to fund the "Let Girls Learn" initiative instead of to pay for Trump's weekly golf outings.

Ivanka you say your dad is a supporter of woman yet he scraps "let girls learn"?

Women who identify as Trump supporters: your president just cut the Let Girls Learn program. Tell me again how much he values women.

Hey @IvankaTrump, your dad is eliminating the "Let Girls Learn" program. Is it time to admit you're a hypocritical, faux-feminist asshole?

Trump has literally abolished a program called Let Girls Learn https://t.co/OmXmb9YPuV

Created in 2015 by the former First Lady and hubby Barack Obama, Let Girls Learn is a passion project driven to provide education for young women in developing countries. It also showcases the incredible community development pursued by the Peace Corps and highlights America’s volunteers who are making a positive difference around the world. Let Girls Learn is one of the many ways our country is helping another, but Trump wants nothing to do with it. Instead, he would rather the US be kept in complete isolation with closed borders.
Needless to say the President is taking a lot of heat for this decision — but he’s not the only one! Twitter users are slamming Ivanka Trump as well, who recently praised her father for supporting women at the W20 summit in Germany. The First Daughter was actually BOOED by the crowd for calling Trump a “champion.” “As a daughter, I can speak on a very personal level knowing that he encouraged and enabled me to thrive. I don’t take that lightly as a parent now myself. And there was no difference for me and my brothers.” Hmmm…we don’t buy it.
HollywoodLifers, how do you feel about Trump discontinuing the Let Girls Learn project?
