President Trump continues his onslaught on all unnecessary government regulations. His focus first was on business – he needed to get rid of the red tape and get this country moving forward again.
Which he did and none would argue otherwise. So now Trump is moving on to other areas of government blight and he just ended Michelle Obama’s favorite program.
Obama’s signature issue was her school lunch program and while the left is screaming Trump did it on her birthday – first off so what if he did it on her birthday, but moreover he waited three years to do it, so if there was any bad intent he would have done it day one.
Trump has systematically combed through the bureaucracy and is draining the swamp, it was inevitable he would eventually get to this restrictive regulation too.
From The Hill:
The Trump administration on Friday announced plans to roll back school lunch standards on vegetables and fruits originally promoted by Michelle Obama, unveiling the proposal on the former first lady’s birthday.
The new standards will allow schools more flexibility “because they know their children best,” the Agriculture Department said in a press release.
“Schools and school districts continue to tell us that there is still too much food waste and that more common-sense flexibility is needed to provide students nutritious and appetizing meals. We listened and now we’re getting to work,” Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue said in a statement.
The proposed rules build on previous steps taken by the Trump administration to unwind the controversial school lunch rules championed by Obama as part of her “Let’s Move!” healthy living campaign. Those rules were implemented through an executive order signed by former President Obama.
Under the new rules, schools would be allowed to reduce the number of fruits and vegetables required at each meal. The change follows a 2019 rollback of restrictions on milk and sodium content in school lunches.
Critics said the change will pave the way for greasier, more unhealthy foods such as pizza, french fries and burgers.
This is just one over the hysterical overreactions from the left.
OK, just look at this, face value. On Michelle Obama’s birthday, the roll-back is scheduled to be officially enacted. Timed perfectly for that. What does that say? It’s petty vindictiveness, something Trump has brashly shown the Obamas at every turn. This is really despicable. https://t.co/GPXJ6IZsTM
