President Donald Trump is putting Parents Back in Charge

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – Conservatives know that strong families are what make America thrive. They build up our neighborhoods, sustain our communities, pass down our values, and create a brighter future for every American citizen.

Trump knows that bureaucrats shouldn’t have the final say in raising our kids. So from child care to school choice to paid family leave, the Trump Administration is putting parents back in control.
