Kellyanne Conway could not give a decision about 14-year-old Barron Trump returning to school in the fall, citing that it’s President Donald Trump and Melania Trump’s “personal decision” to let him go or not.
During a gaggle on the White House driveway Friday morning, Conway was asked if Trump would be sending Barron back to school amid his push to reopen campuses across the country.
“That’s a personal decision,” Conway said. “I don’t know what Barron’s school has decided and I certainly do not know what the first couple has decided in respect to their teenage son who I believe is entering high school this year.”
Question: “Have [President Trump] and the First Lady decided whether Barron will go back to school?”

Now that we have witnessed it on a large scale basis, and firsthand, Virtual Learning has proven to be TERRIBLE compared to In School, or On Campus, Learning. Not even close! Schools must be open in the Fall. If not open, why would the Federal Government give Funding? It won’t!!!
