HBCU's: In late 2019, President Donald Trump signed a bipartisan bill known as "The Future Act" that permanently provides more than $250 million a year to the nation’s historically black colleges and universities ("HBCU's"), and other institutions that serve large numbers of minority students. When signing the bill, Trump said historically black schools have “never had better champions in the White House … [W]hen I took office, I promised to fight for HBCUs, and my administration continues to deliver,” Trump said. Trump was thanked by Michael Lomax, president and CEO of the United Negro College Fund.

The bill restored $255 million in annual funding that lapsed when Congress failed to renew it. The legislation also forgives HBCU Hurricane Katrina debt and prioritized HBCUs by creating the position of Executive Director of the White House Initiative on HBCUs. In recognition of Trump’s efforts to improve the lives of Black Americans, he was awarded The Bipartisan Justice Award at Benedict College, a historically black college, for his criminal justice reform accomplishments.

Democrats say that Trump and his supporters are white supremacists despite all the empirical evidence to the contrary. It is a slanderous lie.
