President Trump sets Nancy Pelosi off by vetoing student loan forgiveness legislation

Donald Trump just dealt another devastating blow to Nancy Pelosi’s agenda on Friday evening, vetoing a bill intended to block Education Secretary Betsy DeVos from implementing a new rule regarding student loan forgiveness.

Pelosi is still reeling from Trump’s successful campaign to defeat her FISA reform bill earlier this week, but he didn’t stop there.

Trump opted to drop the hammer on the loan forgiveness measure on Friday because it “sought to reimpose an Obama-era regulation that defined educational fraud so broadly that it threatened to paralyze the nation’s system of higher education.”

Trump explained that DeVos’ rule “strikes a better balance” between “protecting students’ rights to recover from schools that defraud them while foreclosing frivolous lawsuits that undermine higher education and expose taxpayers to needless loss.”

This is Trump’s eighth veto of his presidency, but the first veto of a domestic policy bill. Trump cited the objections of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) as the reason he chose to block the legislation. He said that HBCU’s urged him to veto the bill because it “would have irreparably harmed their great institutions.”

“As president, I have been strongly committed to fighting for HBCUs,” Trump continued. “As I have said before, HBCUs have never had a better champion in the White House. My disapproval of this resolution is another marker of that support.”

Trump’s decision infuriated Speaker Pelosi, who responded that the Democrat-controlled House will attempt to overturn the veto. Though 10 Republican Senators crossed the aisle to initially approve the measure, it’s unlikely that the Senate will rally behind Pelosi’s effort to overturn Trump’s decision.

“Is sad that the president rejected the will of the Congress and the country with his veto,” Pelosi sniped after learning of the defeat.“The House will soon vote to overturn this veto, which poses a grave harm to the financial security and futures of America’s students.”

  1. I strongly believe that young kids need to learn their own responsbilty to pay their debt when they finish their college degree. We taxpayers are not responsible for them. They need to grow up and pay their own debt

    1. I believe young people really don’t know what they want right after High School. Should be you serve 2 years in the Military to give them time to figure it out. Be paid then when the VW years is up. Military pays their College. In otger words mandatory service

    2. I agree 100%. The American people, tax payers, shouldn’t be expected tp pay their educational debts. Some, are full time students that don’t want to go to work.

    3. Amen! They need to learn the value of $$$$ and take responsibility for how they spent their college time. Their parents probably never taught them the value of the dollar or gave them an responsibilities and if they didn’t complete what was requested, the assignment was just OK or never followed up on so they need to learn the hard way.

    4. I totally agree with you Bruce. We paid for both of our childrens’ college educations. Our son did get small scholarship which he earned by being a good student. They both have degrees that have enabled them to get excellent jobs in science related careers.

      So many of our present college graduates have ridiculously stupid degrees, and that is why they are working at Starbucks; and it would not surprise me if they are rioting now with ANIFA
      We taxpayers are not responsible for them.

  2. Way to go Mr. President!!!! Kids are given and I mean given everything today!! They expect every thing to be handed to them on a silver platter. In our day we worked for each and everything we got. Today they have every mechanical thing handed to them. Let them work for it.

    1. I agree. These kids will never grow up. What this bill is aimed to do is make these kids relying in the government for everything. This is aimed to support Socialism for America. All that is needed is the need to learn is responsibility, held accountable for their own actions.

  3. God forbid that ‘these college students’ are of voting age and if Pigosi has indoctrinated them well enough, along with the crooks she’s paid to help out with these riots, burning, looting, attacking Police, It is all well planned and orchestrated by these THUGS! Wonder how, and how much, they’ve been paid to cause billions of dollars of loss to EVERYONE but them!!! TRUMP should call out every single hardcore, but legal, army corps for every State.
    Arrest every single S.O.B., cage them somewhere and feed them bread and water…..it is ALL the damn well deserve. It is NOT protesting, it is downright CRIMINAL looting, burning, killing of an innocent 19 yr old. But, if you lay down with dogs, you WILL get flees!!! The wanna be protesters haven’t got the guts to NOT act like heathens and criminals and follow the THUGS!

  4. I know there is maybe no need to say this, nevertheless i ‘m proud encourage. President Trump to keep up the good job and God Bless him in all he does to MAGA.

  5. Pelosi has one intent in mind, to destroy this economy and turn the country into total dependence upon government. Of course the main objective is to destroy any possibility of recovery after all of this calamity.

  6. NASTY NANCY PELOSI IS FIRED UP TO GIVE AWAY MONEY THAT DOES NOT BELONG TO HER, BUT I BET SHES A BITCH WHEN COMES TO HER OWN MONEY. LIKE HER 3 TRILLION DOLLAR BLOW IT PUT YOUR ASS PLAN TO BENEFIT THE RICH. IF ANYONES GOING TO SHUT HER DOWN. PRESIDENT TRUMP’S THE RIGHT MAN FOR THAT JOB! FIRE PELOSI!

    1. BIG WORDS ARE THE BEST FOR THIS AWFUL MOUTH & MIND OF THIS PILOSI !!! 👺MR PRESIDENT, WE’RE BEHIND YOU ALL THE WAY !!!!❤️👍🏼OUR VOTES FOR THIS NOV. 2020 IS YOURS ALONE !!!! MAGA 🇺🇸🦅

      1. All the college grads that have repaid their loans should be extremely infuriated. It’s Nancy trying to buy more votes.

  7. Can I recoup the money I paid while I was in school? College students who have parents in congress get free education. College charges too much , for frivolous ventures. Reduce tuitions and get a good education

  8. A few short years ago, my grandson graduated with a degree in electrical engineering. He married and had one child while in college. He worked, studied hard, and graduated totally debt free. A month after graduation he was hired by NASA. Students can complete college without massive debt!?

  9. Right Decision. I have not seen one thing from Pelosi or her swamp buddies that I could say was a good plan.

  10. Great job Mr. President! Nasty Pelosi needs to retire & get out of the way of your progress for this country! I am not black, but I think you have done more for the black people of this country than any democrat has ever done! The democrats just want to keep them shackled on the plantation with their hands out for crumbs from their masters. They and every American deserve better! Keep up the fantastic job Mr. Trump! It will be a great pleasure to vote for you again and reelect you to continue your great work!

  11. God Bless you PRESIDENT Trump, you’re doing a AWESOME JOB. Let God keep guiding you to keep this country Christian, free and safe.

  12. Like!! I blog quite often and I genuinely thank you for your information. The article has truly peaked my interest.

    1. I have personal knowledge of several of the entitlement generation’s promises. Without any intention of getting a degree or career, they take the money, never try to better themselves, squander it foolishly and never pay it back. What in the h*** are we teaching this generation?

  13. Thank you President Trump. These corrupt democrats are on all of our last nerves. They are trying so hard to make everyone dependent upon the government. Can’t wait for November to get these crap out.

  14. Congrats Mr Trump!! This is one of the many reasons Socialism will NOT work in this country. The money has to come from somewhere. As for Nancy Pelosi, she has outlived her time to be positive for our country!
    Set on defiance of our president since before he was elected. The Democratic Party is far from what they were in the past

  15. Go home Nancy. Stay behind those walls. When you are no longer Miss High and Mighty. Will you have the security to keep all the americans you screwed and wanted to control from getting to you. There is no place for you and your corrupt party in this day and age. What if a group of out of towners get out of control and burn your home down. Sometimes mobs get out of control and their is only one resolve.God forbid that that should happen. You are a disgrace to America. Have not heard one peep out of Nancy or the Dems about stopping the riots in America. It was wrong what one ass of a policeman could cause.and 3 fellow officers stand by and do nothing about one of their own over stepping his authotity. When I watched what happened to Mr.Floyd and I heard him say lord their going to kill me right hear. I was full of rage and tears flowed. Their is a big concern in the manner that police are to demand control. And to push their authority in a commanding manor. This should not be a part of how they treat everyone. If it is needed then it should be applied. The word is respect between the person and officer. Officers are not the lawyers, judges, or jurys. But they think they are. Much like Nancy Pelosi thinks she is the Queen of America. When our leaders act like a spoiled.kid and their going to get you back anb try to destroy you.they surely need no power over people. Go home Nancy. And take Chuck Schumer with you.

    1. …and Maxine Waters, Diane Feinstein, the Clinton’s and Obama’s, Nadler, Shiff, and the entire Democrat elite party!!!

      Those Democrat leaders up on the Hill, are an embarrassment and a TOTAL DISGRACE!! ALL of them need solitary confinement to repent for their grievous sins against humanity!!!

  16. Pelosi is a disgrace to our country and to California,the state she represents. Great job Mr President! Vote Pelosi and the Democrats out.

  17. I believe Trump is doing the right thing kids need to learn to pay their owe debt nothing in life is free this is where it starts !!

  18. Good for you Mr. President… We the People stand behind you. Take down the swamp headed by
    the new Hitler George Soros.

  19. Good going!! Nasty Nancy has had her way for far to long.. We are going to run out of paper to print the money she wants to spend. If kids today want a good education, they can work their way through school. My son worked 2 jobs for his education because he didn’t want me to go into debt for his education. He graduated and got good jobs because of his adult mind.
    “WE THE PEOPLE” need to make the right decisions this November and get those career politicians out of D.C. and
    vote the right people in to do the work they were voted into office to perform.
    STOP THE REDICULOUS SPENDING, VOTE CAREER POLITICIANS OUT, DON’T MAKE EVERY ISSUE A POLITICAL ISSUE,
    GET THE RINOS OUT OF CONGRESS AND THE SENATE…..

  20. Students are getting degrees in useless fields then can’t get jobs in to pay their debt. It is their own fault for building debt in such a way. This is another reason money management should be taught in high school. It’s not the tax payers place to pay their debt. We have, or had our own college debt we had to pay. Live and let learn. If they are having trouble paying now because of this pandemic they need to contact their loan office and make arrangements just like many of us have had to do with our mortgages, utilities and credit debt during this time.

  21. It’s beginning to sound like Hitler’s Gestapo tactics all over again!
    The Democrat party is our new “MAFIA” WITH MORE POWER THAN THE OLD MAFIA. OUTLAWING OUR GUNS IS THE FIRST STEP! WHICH WON’T DO ANYTHING BUT REQUIRE GUNS FROM LAW BIDING CITIZENS TO BE TURNED IN. BUT THE IDIOT WHO BELIEVES CRIMINALS WILL TURN IN THEIR GUNS, IS A DAMNED FOOL.

  22. THANK YOU SIR FOR ANOTHER ABSOLUTELY AWESOME JOB !!!…PLEASE, CONTINUE TO DRAIN THE SWAMP !!!…4 MORE YEARS !!!

  23. I am in agreement that students already have been given everything and have become part of the entitlement generation. There’s no better way to learn about being responsible for their own bills than to have them pay their bills. I know of several “professional” students who continue to attend college but have no desire to work. That way they keep building up the amount they owe. Will it eventually come to paying to furnish their first homes for the youth because it’s so expensive.

  24. I would suggest online classes. Way cheaper and you can work it around your schedule if you need a degree. Or trade school if a degree is not needed. Also look into something you are happy doing and see if it is a marketable skill.

  25. I am sure this piece of writing has touched all the internet
