Trump Proves He Could Care Less About Kids By Undoing Michelle Obama’s Biggest Accomplishment

The Trump administration is getting their hands dirty again. This time Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue is expected to unveil a new rule on Monday that will give schools more flexibility in what they can feed students.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), an announcement will be made at the Catoctin Elementary School in Leesburg, Va. by Perdue and Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.). They are expected to have a lunch in with the students.

Michelle Obama had set school lunch nutrition guidelines to curb childhood obesity in the U.S.. Republicans have since been trying to dial back on those standards.

The American Heart Association is against the new ruling. The group’s CEO, Nancy Brown, said in a statement that the current standards are working just fine and that 99% of schools are in compliance.

“Improving children’s health should be a top priority for the USDA, and serving more nutritious foods in schools is a clear-cut way to accomplish this goal,” she said.

“Rather than altering the current path forward, we hope the agency focuses more on providing technical assistance that can help schools get across the finish line, if they haven’t done so already.”
