That ugly dust-up between Education Secretary Betsy DeVos and “protesters” who taunted her and physically blocked her from entering a D.C. public school could have been avoided had the school district simply imposed and publicized a blanket ban on DeVos entering any school buildings beforehand.
It’s a tribute to the forward-thinking leaders of tomorrow at Howard University, then, that Concerned Students, 1867 has, among other demands, stipulated that the school ban President Donald Trump from all school buildings — that’s one sure way to avoid any awkward scenes should the president think about stopping by with another truck full of taxpayer money.
"The time is always now."
These are our demands:

The group also demands that the school declare itself a sanctuary campus, but Howard is far from unique in that regard.
@KatMcKinley Fine, lets ban all federal funding to Howard.

@realmyiq2xu2 It is amusing they say in bold letters no "additional funding" So they are all good w/ the $$$ they get now.

The students might claim not to need any additional federal funding, but it could be a sticking point for the university’s administrators.
@HUResist How do you demand the University to ban a sitting President from the campus? How do you think the Uni is funded?
