Delaware State University and the country’s other Historically Black Colleges and Universities now have a more direct connection to the White House.
“Today I’m very excited to be signing an executive order to recognize the importance of Historic Black Colleges and Universities. Very important,” Trump said.
Trump called HBCU’s an “absolute priority” of the White House.
But HBCU leaders are pressing the president to follow through on his commitment by nearly doubling federal funding for the schools.
The leaders were invited to the White House this week for a listening session with the president.
