The Trump administration has denied claims that it is shutting down Michelle Obama‘s initiative aimed at educating girls in developing nations.

Thus far, Donald Trump‘s first year in office has focused a handful of things: Playing golf, trying to push through unconstitutional laws, dodging those pesky tax return requests, and attempting to erase former President Barack Obama‘s legacy (impossible). Now, there have been reports that he’s going after one of Michelle‘s programs.

According to CNN, a Trump White House memo stated that the administration is aiming to immediately end the Let Girls Learn program that Barack and Michelle started in 2015. The program isn’t being completely dismantled, but only parts of it are being preserved. Furthermore, people working on the Let Girls Learn campaign have been told that it’s being shut down, so they can’t use the name anymore.

Peace Corps director Sheila Crowley informed the organization about the program being discontinued in a email stating, “Moving forward, we will not continue to use the ‘Let Girls Learn’ brand or maintain a stand-alone program.”

She continued by thanking volunteers for all of their hard work on the campaign, crediting them for its success until its abrupt end.

However, a White House spokeswoman claimed that “there have been no changes to the program.” Beyond that, no direct answers about the fate of the Let Girls Learn initiative as the White House directed all questions to reps for Melania Trump, who declined to make any comment on the matter.

The White House also skirted questions about whether the Let Girls Campaign would continue as a standalone program.

    It’s sad to think that a person can be so devious and jealous as to try to undo everything another person has done before him. Everyone needs to be lifted up, regardless of color or sex, but our young people need it the most. Cutting programs because you were priveledged and crooked, will come back to bite you in the butt big time.

    Trump is handily erasing Obama’s pathetic legacy one day at a time. Obozo will be the most irrelevant president ever. ROTFL

    Jose’ your president gets dumber by the minute, as if that were even possible. Now he’s calling for a good government shutdown. What is that? I’ve never heard of a “good” government shutdown. How is it good to lay people off when clearly everyone working need their jobs? What good and decent POTUS would want/wish his own government to shut down? He is definitely not working for the people of America. Oh but one thing is for sure, all government agencies will shut down but Mar-la-go will remain up and running, so no worries…for the fool-in-chief.

    Let’s wait until we get the final word. BWA always, like most news organizations, sometimes do not give the full story. Thus, Black folks go crazy over half information. For the record, Black people have been more vile and racists against me than any other group. So we should curtail how we use that word. At least until our hands are clean.

      FM,
      I’m truly sorry your own kind have been so unkind to you and treated you so cruel. I’ve been black a long time, and while yes, I’ve had people dislike me on all sides but I can truly say no one more than the other. Undercover racist white folks smiled in my face and shanked me in the back, and blacks with no core values or human compassion for anyone have done the same. One thing I don’t do, is to think it’s only black folks that hate other black folks. History proves that just aint so. And even more recent, look at how all the “good” white-folk treated the Obamas throughout their 8 year tenure.
