Ex-Trump Cabinet Official Wants to Abolish Department They Once Oversaw

Former U.S. Department of Education (DOE) Secretary Betsy DeVos called for the abolition of the Department in a speech Sunday at the Moms For Liberty National Summit in Tampa, Florida.

The Daily Wire reports:

“I personally think the Department of Education should not exist,” DeVos said during the summit, according to the Florida Phoenix.

DeVos, who ran the education department during the Trump Administration, has continued advocating for school choice for American children.

In an exclusive interview with the Daily Caller News Foundation, DeVos said Republicans have talked about shrinking or eliminating the department for “many, many years.” However, she said taking practical steps like block grants to the states — a proposal recently introduced to Congress — could turn the tides and create a feasible option to make the idea a reality.

“Just watching how the system has performed or not performed the last two years, I think makes this argument of shrinking the department to be much more potent,” DeVos told the Daily Caller.

Good call. And while we are at it lets abolish the EPA. It’s the most powerful arm of an already tyrannical gov’t. The IRS too. And we should get out of the UN and the WHO. Once Trump is elected again, he should really clean house.

That would cut into the empire building and DC can’t have that – means they wouldn’t be spending – the whole government needs a enigma
