Trump Threatens Tax Exemptions For Universities: “Too Many Schools Are About Radical Left Indoctrination”

The Independent reports:

Donald Trump escalated his feud with school systems and colleges that started over whether they should reopen this fall amid the coronavirus pandemic, threatening their tax-exempt status. The president accused “too many” colleges and school systems of “radical left indoctrination” of students, verbiage ripped from his 2020 re-election campaign.

According to the Association of American Universities, a “vast majority of private and public universities and colleges are tax-exempt entities because of their educational purposes – purposes that the Federal government has long recognized as fundamental to fostering the productive and civic capacities of citizens.”
