Rep. Lee: Trump’s Attempt to ‘Blackmail School Districts’ Could Be ‘Deadly’

‘There’s no funding in the executive actions, first of all’


LEE: "Also, the President is — in terms of his bullying the school districts, is actually trying to blackmail school districts and force them to physically open, even if the health protocols or the virus is such that the health officials do not believe they should be opened. So deciding to penalize students that won’t do this and so the safety of our teachers and the workers, all the workers at our schools and our students are in jeopardy. He cannot keep doing this. That is one thing that he does not want to happen. He wants the money to be fenced in for those schools who physically open, and that’s dangerous and it’s not healthy and it could be deadly.”
