Trump: Parental Rights Today's 'Civil Rights Issue'

By    |   Friday, 17 May 2024 01:05 PM EDT

Former President Donald Trump this week released a statement calling parental rights "the civil rights issue of our time," in a social media post.

Trump on Wednesday praised author Corey DeAngelis' new book "The Parent Revolution," calling it "a great guide to help Moms and Dads take back control of their children's education from the RADICAL MARXISTS ruining our schools."

Trump added: "As I have long said, School Choice is the CIVIL RIGHTS ISSUE of our time, and parents must have a voice in their child's education! When I am your President again, I will protect Parental Rights, support Teachers, and expand Educational Freedom for all American Families!"

The Washington Examiner reported that the issue of parental rights is a defining topic for Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., co-chair of the Congressional School Choice Caucus, who emphasized the importance of education during his unsuccessful presidential campaign last year.

Trump's statement on Wednesday echoed Scott's comments last January when he said during a rally for National School Choice Week that "quality education" is the "greatest civil rights issue of our time."

Scott is among those rumored to be a candidate to serve as Trump's running mate in the 2024 presidential election, having recently appeared at a high-profile GOP fundraising event hosted by the former president in Florida.

Trump has yet to release a list of potential vice presidential picks.
