Trump's ABC town hall: President faces tough questions on coronavirus response, health care, racial injustice

President Donald Trump took questions from uncommitted voters in Philadelphia in a 90-minute town hall special hosted by ABC News.

Only the best for this administration. Such a waste of oxygen. BetsyDeVosED of course that’s true. She’s as dirty and stupid as they come. Can’t wait to see all of this administration in jail. BetsyDeVosED bought and paid for. crooked If teachers won't go back to work, parents deserve to receive the funds directly so they can make their own decisions.

Her only agenda from the minute she took office was to push public funding to vouchers and private schools...this is not a surprise, but it still pisses me off. The corruption is rampant throughout the Republicans that have positions of influence in this government. So sad, there evil greedy manipulation was not used to and for the betterment of the people that put them there, the American people.

Betsy DeVos can FK OFF Unqualified Clueless inexperienced inept out-of-touch elitist biotch Thoughtlessly needlessly puttg kids, staff & families at risk w/o a meaningful plan These people don't belong in these jobs. WorstPresidentEver WorstAdministrationEver VoteTrumpOut Why shouldn’t parents have a choice?

Fake news again of course she is... Evil She has no plans or desires to improve public schools because she does not have the qualifications to attempt such a large task. Her idea of public improvement is to give parents the ability to attend private charters. She's a poster child for the DC swamp. Last I heard, public schools were trying not to open and their teachers were staging die-ins. Give the money to institutions that deserve it. Or give it to the parents for homeschool. Public school indoctrination is a scourge to this country.

Disgraceful!!! She needs to be gone! Conservative bullshit narrative of private industry can always do better is just cover for rich selfish assholes to profit off the state and socialize the costs. At least they aren’t even really pretending anymore ..just daring people to stop them she should go to PRISON with the Trump CRIME FAMILY 🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬

Public school teachers are refusing to go back and teach. So either they’re essential like the Walmart greeter or give me a f’n voucher so I can send my kids elsewhere teachersneedtoteach No shit! Scared only because the media is PanicPorn No so called educator who has not taught PUBLIC SCHOOL knows a student from a dwarf granny. That ought to have incontrovertibly disqualified her. The Qualified Candidate ought to challenge her legally. Pro Bono case? Excellent PR!

Everyone around 45 is a criminal, what excludes her? Good job spreading lies NBC You are one no ethics lady who has proven that slime and grime come in all shapes and forms. White, private schools? Good for her. Public education is broken and should be defunded. Fucking thief This is what Trump meant when he said drain the swamp.

Of course she does. She is not an educator and has no experience in education. She is simply a Trump puppet doing what he wants as he panders to his fans. 🤮

I agree just that doesn't necessarily mean that people should destroy monuments, statues or books. Especially because their knowledge of history is very poor
