Over the weekend, it was revealed that Donald Trump is about to effectively destroy Michelle Obama’s precious National School Lunch Program. Now, it has been revealed that he’s about to end another major piece of her legacy as well.
The Blaze reported that Trump’s White House is discontinuing Michelle’s “Let Girls Learn” program, which was her signature girls education initiative that she started with her husband in 2015 to facilitate educational opportunities for adolescent girls in developing countries. Though some aspects of the program will continue, staffers have been told to stop using the “Let Girls Learn” name and were told that, as a program unto itself, “Let Girls Learn” was ending.
“Moving forward, we will not continue to use the ‘Let Girls Learn’ brand or maintain a stand-alone program,” read an email sent to Peace Corps employees this week by the agency’s acting director Sheila Crowley. “‘Let Girls Learn’ provided a platform to showcase Peace Corps’ strength in community development, shining a bright light on the work of our Volunteers all over the world. We are so proud of what ‘Let Girls Learn’ accomplished and we have all of you to thank for this success.”
This undoubtedly came as devastating news to Michelle, as the National School Lunch Program and “Let Girls Learn” were the two pieces of her legacy that she was most proud of. She was hoping each would last forever, but neither made it to four months after her husband left the White House.
