Trump Has Vowed To Protect Free Speech On College Campuses

President Trump to sign a measure to guarantee free speech on college campuses this weekend in a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), reported CBN

"I'm proud to announce that I will be very soon signing an executive order requiring colleges and universities to support free speech – if they want federal research dollars," Trump stated.

"If they want our dollars, and we give it to them by the billions, they've got to allow people like Hayden and many other great young people and old people to speak"

The announcement has come after conservative activists were being silenced and even attacked on campuses across the country. The most recent incident was at University of California-Berkeley where a conservative student was assaulted. The victim of that assault, Hayden Williams, was on stage with President Trump at CPAC when the "free speech" announcement was made.

"He took a punch for all of us," Trump shared of Williams. "And we could never allow that to happen. And here is, in closing with Hayden, here's the good news. He's going to be a wealthy young man."

"If they want our dollars, and we give it to them by the billions, they've got to allow people like Hayden and many other great young people and old people to speak," Trump said according to Fox News. "Free speech. If they don't, it will be costly. That will be signed soon."

"These students do it because they have a love of our nation and freedom and, frankly, a love for you Mr. President," Williams responded.
"College campuses have become increasingly unsafe for conservatives," Charlie Kirk, the founder and executive director of Turning Point USA, told Fox News.

"Our amazing Turning Point USA team was talking and then confronted by the hateful Left, which resulted in the assault and punching in the face just because of a difference of opinion. If the attacker was wearing a MAGA hat, this would be classified as a hate crime and all over every news channel."
