President Donald Trump ordered the Treasury Department on Friday to review the tax-exempt status of colleges and universities, following his threats to cut federal funding to schools that do not reopen due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The president's attack on institutions of higher education comes as they're struggling with how to handle the upcoming fall semester due to the virus, which has dealt a financial blow to many.

In a pair of tweets, Trump accused institutions of higher education of focusing on "Radical Left Indoctrination" rather than educating their students.

"I am telling the Treasury Department to re-examine their Tax-Exempt Status and/or Funding, which will be taken away if this Propaganda or Act Against Public Policy continues. Our children must be Educated, not Indoctrinated!" Trump said in a pair of tweets made while traveling to Florida.

This POS is unbelievable.

There is no other explanation in my mind other than he's trying to destroy everything, or at least damage it as much as possible before leaving.

We have a POTUS actively trying to cripple the United States at every societal level and 33% of the country loves it.

Straight from President Donald "I paid someone to take the SATs for me" Trump.

How about all the students and staff just claim they have bone spurs so they can't attend while hitting the golf course?

... Trump accused institutions of higher education of focusing on "Radical Left Indoctrination" rather than educating their students. ...

At best, it looks to me as if Pres Trump is trying leverage the money to force the colleges to hold classes on campus, so that Pres Trump can point to them and say, "see, I reopened the Country."

At worst, Pres Trump is using the power to tax as a means to kill off his political enemies.
