A Georgia school district needed to apologize after one of their teachers said that President Trump’s slogan was comparable to a Swastika. The teacher told a student they could not wear their “Make America Great Again” shirt to school any more.
“You cannot wear a Swastika to school – you cannot use a slogan like that,” the teacher told the student.
The teacher’s aggressive words were caught on another student’s cell phone video and it was obtained by Turning Point USA.
The School District was the Cherokee District outside of Atlanta. They apologized by saying that the student did nothing wrong and the teacher acted “inappropriately.” The school has not formally identified the teacher.
President Trump is not the first American president to use the phrase. Both former presidents Reagan and Clinton used it in the past. Reagan challenged his listeners to “Make America Great Again” in his 1980 convention speech. Former President Bill Clinton said recently that Trump’s campaign slogan to “Make America Great Again” is racist. He blasted Trump as speaking to “white southerners” when he uses the phrase. But Clinton used the same phrase in 1991, 1992, and as recently as 2008.
