Trump Vows Executive Order That Would Block Federal Funds For Colleges That Don’t Enable Far-Right Speech

USA Today reports:

Trump invited onto the CPAC stage Hayden Williams, a conservative activist punched on the University of California at Berkeley’s campus last month.

Praising Williams for “taking a hard punch in the face for all of us,” Trump urged Williams to sue his attacker, the college and possibly the state of California. “He’s going to be a very wealthy young man,” Trump said. “Go get ‘em, Hayden.”

He also announced he will be signing “very soon” an executive order requiring schools to “support free speech” if they want to receive federal research dollars. “If they want our dollars, and we give it to them by the billions, they’ve got to allow people like Hayden to speak,” Trump said.
