Trump Signs Order on Free Speech on College Campuses

"To every student and young American here today, don't let anyone stop you from doing what you know is right, from asking questions, from challenging the powerful or from speaking your mind and that's the primary reason we're here right now," said President Trump.  On Thursday, President Donald Trump signed an executive order he says will protect free speech on college campuses.

There aren't a lot of details on how it would be enforced, but the directive says colleges that don't support free speech laws might be at risk of losing federal funding.

President Trump first  made an announcement  about the order at the Conservative Political Action Conference earlier this month.

"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.

Free speech," the president said.  He was referring to conservative activist Hayden Williams, who was  allegedly assaulted  in February while campaigning for a right-wing group at U.C.

Berkeley.

U.C.

Berkeley was criticized for stifling free expression after it  canceled events  with conservative speakers over safety concerns.

In 2017, a scheduled appearance by Milo Yiannopoulos at Berkeley was met with violent protests, causing the event to be canceled.

The university also canceled a speech by broadcast personality Ann Coulter in response.

And multiple colleges, including Penn State, Michigan State University, the University of Florida and Texas A&M University, denied speaking events by white nationalist Richard Spencer in the wake of the deadly protests in Charlottesville.
