President Joe Biden "sold out America's children to the teachers unions" and must get schools that have remained closed during the coronavirus pandemic "open and get them open now," former President Donald Trump said Sunday in his Conservative Political Action Conference speech. 

"I call on Joe Biden to get the schools open and get them open now,' he said "It will be a great thing to do."

Biden's position on schools, Trump told his cheering audience, "is morally inexcusable."

"Joe Biden has shamefully betrayed America's youth, and he is cruelly keeping our children locked in their homes," said Trump. "(There is) no reason for it whatsoever. They want to get out. They're cheating the next generations of Americans out of the future that they deserve, and they do deserve this future." 

Keeping the nation's schools closed is "a scandal of the highest order and one of the most craven acts by any president in our lifetimes," Trump added. "Teachers unions get the votes, and it shouldn't happen."

Trump added that "nobody has more respect for teachers than he does," but there are many union members who agree with him that schools need to reopen. 

"The mental and physical health of these young people is reaching a breaking point," he said. "Tragically, suicide attempts have skyrocketed, and student depression is now commonplace and at levels we've never seen before."

Democrats, he added, want their $1.9 trillion COVID bill, a "boondoggle" to open schools, but instead, the money will bail out "badly-run Democrat cities."
