Donald Trump – Threatens To Pull Federal Funds From U.C. Berkeley
Last night, Milo Yiannopoulos, who is a conservative blogger who happens to be gay but not very pro-gay rights, was scheduled to speak at U.C. (University of California) Berekely (campus). Unfortunately, protests that became violent broke out. Due to this, the University ended up making the decision to cancel the event. They claimed to make this decision due to “violence, destruction of property and out of concern for public safety.” They also had to end up going into lockdown due to what was occurring.
Rather than applaud the University for making a decision that was clearly made to keep people -including Yiannopoulous safe- President Donald Trump took to Twitter this morning to blast the University for their decision.
“If U.C. Berkeley does not allow free speech and practices violence on innocent people with a different point of view – NO FEDERAL FUNDS?” Trump tweeted, suggesting federal funds could be pulled from Universities for things like this.
