Trump New Policy Eliminates Military Child Care Program — Sorry, Troops

Donald Trump supporters thought his agenda would “make America great.” How wrong they were. Now, Trump regret has set in all across the country. Sadly, too little too late.

On January 23, Trump announced a hiring freeze for federal workers and members of the Armed Forces are feeling the effects.

Army bases are suspending childcare programs, citing staff shortages related to the hiring freeze, according to The Military.

Officials at Fort Knox, Kentucky, notified families Feb. 17 of the suspension to the on-base part-day child development center (CDC) programs, its hourly care program and the enrollment of new families into the CDC.

“Effective immediately, no new children will be enrolled in the CDC,” states the letter, signed by Fort Knox garrison commander Col. Stephen Aiton. “Also, effective 27 February 2017, the CDC will no longer accommodate childcare for our hourly care and part day families until further notice.”

The CDC’s part-day programs include its part-day preschools. Many military families, including some CDC workers, rely on hourly care for child care during part-time jobs or school hours, or when the full-time day care program is full. One Army spouse at Fort Knox reported that the wait list for her 1-year-old is estimated through July.

Sorry, troops.

For the next four years, we’re all just going to have to deal with Trump’s deplorable policies – unless Congress wakes up and does something about it.
