An op-ed in the New York Times admits Trump was right about not closing down our schools.
What’s the word for this … it’s right on the tip of our tongue … oh, that’s it.
Sometimes something is true even though President Trump asserts it, and the paramount importance of reopening schools is a rare area where Trump was right and many Democrats were wrong, @NickKristof writes https://t.co/3tXVlzRxtP

If only more states would have listened to Trump on this COVID regulation. But nope, they listened to the unions …
And what a mess.
From the New York Times:
Trump has been demanding for months that schools reopen, and on that he seems to have been largely right. Schools, especially elementary schools, do not appear to have been major sources of coronavirus transmission, and remote learning is proving to be a catastrophe for many low-income children.
Yet America is shutting schools — New York City announced Wednesday that it was closing schools in the nation’s largest school district — even as it allows businesses like restaurants and bars to operate. What are our priorities?
Unions are their priorities.
And playing political games with our kids.
Wow! Massive MSM Security Breech!!!
This exact premise was also a major part of today’s @Individual1Pod
I will NEVER EVER forgive liberals for placing the defeat of Trump over the welfare of a generation of children. Schools should never have been closed. It was pure politics.

It was more important to Democrats to beat Trump than the general welfare of our children and the schools.
Note, this is typically where we share tweets of people responding to the tweet we’re writing about, but most of the tweets on this ‘thread’ are just Leftists losing their minds and screaming that Trump was never right and it’s horrible to try and keep our kids educated with the pandemic because … we’re not entirely sure why.
But their ridiculous reaction just proves his point.
We should never have shut down our schools. The solution should never have been more dangerous than the problem.
And even the New York Times knows it.
