Children should not be subjected to another COVID-19 lockdown and schools must remain open for in person learning, former President Donald Trump told Fox News’ host Dan Bongino.

“Children have to go back to school,” he said on Saturday’s show “Unfiltered with Dan Bongino.”

The schools have to open. These young people are losing a big part of their life and they’re not going to recover from it

President Donald Trump

“You know, it’s turned out computers are wonderful and all of that,” he said. “But one thing we’ve learned through college and school, undergraduate, everything, is that being in the school is much better than looking at a computer screen.”

He also slammed the teachers unions and said “the mandates are crazy, what they’re doing with schools now.” 

“The schools have to open. These young people are losing a big part of their life and they’re not going to recover from it,” Trump added. “The schools have to open. What they’re going through socially, I mean, they are not dealing with people. I don’t think they ever – it’s going to leave a scar on their lives. It’s going to leave a psychological scar.” 

“The kids have to get back to school,” he said. “Our children need to be educated.”

Oklahoma passes bill banning majority of abortions from ‘moment of fertilization’

Oklahoma’s Republican Governor Kevin Stitt signed a bill into law on Wednesday which bans virtually all abortions “from the moment of fertilization.”

“I promised Oklahomans that as governor I would sign every piece of pro-life legislation that came across my desk and I am proud to keep that promise today. From the moment life begins at conception is when we have a responsibility as human beings to do everything we can to protect that baby’s life and the life of the mother,” Stitt said in a statement. “That is what I believe and that is what the majority of Oklahomans believe.”

The state legislature first approved the bill, which goes into effect immediately, last week. It bans abortions from the moment of fertilization, except for in cases where rape or incest occurred, or where the mother’s life is in danger.

The law also allows for private citizens to sue doctors or those who participate in “producing an abortion for up to $10,000, mimicking the enforcement mechanism in Texas’s fetal heartbeat law” reports National Review.

Under the new law it is a felony offense to perform an abortion, “which will take effect in August unless a court challenge blocks it.”
