Social media users are having a hard time digesting an opinion piece written by former President Donald Trump on the so-called “critical race theory” controversy that’s roiling local school boards. Trump denounced the topic as “depraved” and accused President Biden of being a racist.
In the op-ed, published by Real Clear Politics, the disgraced one-term president complained that “Biden’s number one promise was to ‘unite’ America, yet in his first months as president, his number one priority has been to divide our country by race and gender at every turn.”
“There is no clearer example than the Biden administration’s new effort aimed at indoctrinating America’s schoolchildren with some of the most toxic and anti-American theories ever conceived,” Trump wrote.
He also whined that President Biden, on Day One, abolished the ‘1776 Commission’ the Trump administration hastily assembled to promote “patriotic” historical virtues to counter the “1619 Project”, a New York Times initiative that placed slaves and Black Americans closer to the center of the nation’s story.
Critics were left wondering if he actually wrote the Op-Ed, with some comparing his writing style to a 6th grader:

Clearly not written by Donald Trump, as it uses complete sentences and words with more than two syllables. https://t.co/qcQhr4oVuk

Who wrote it for him?

“but regrettably, many have graduated from extremely biased education schools”
Yeah, that’s definitely him

Hahaha. His op-Ed in the Delusional Elementary School Newsletter, no doubt.

The only worthwhile question thar arises from this is if Stephen Miller wrote it or if Martin Dugard is now giving him and O'Reilly a group discount.
