Here you can find out what Donald Trump wants to teach at his new Free University

Former President Donald Trump announced a plan to create a free university and teased topics that could be taught.

In a social media post this week, Trump talked about his plans to create the American Academy, which he said will be an online university funded by “billions and billions of dollars” that are “taxed.” and fines” and legal action against excessively large university foundations.

“This institution will collect a universe of the highest quality educational content, spanning the full spectrum of human knowledge and skill, and make this material available online, free of charge, to every American citizen,” Trump said. “It doesn’t matter whether you want lectures or old stories or an introduction to financial accounting or training in a skilled trade. The goal will be to keep things going and get things right.”

Trump continued to criticize some universities in the US after protests erupted during fighting between Israel and Hamas militants.

“In recent weeks, Americans have been horrified to see students and faculty at Harvard and other once-prestigious universities expressing support for the savages and jihadists who attacked Israel… We spend more money on higher education than every other country – and yet you are turning our students into communists and terrorist sympathizers in many, many different dimensions,” he said.

According to the Associated Press, fighting has continued since Hamas’ attacks in Israel on October 7, with more than 9,000 casualties reported on both sides. Shortly after the fighting began, the Harvard Palestine Solidarity Groups issued a joint statement, signed by several other student groups, criticizing Israel.

“We, the undersigned student organizations, hold the Israeli regime solely responsible for all of the unfolding violence,” the statement reads in part.

In his announcement, Trump said the American Academy would be a “premier educational option,” adding that it would be “strictly non-political.”

“No wokeness or jihadism allowed. None of this will be allowed,” Trump said. “Most importantly, the American Academy will compete directly with the existing and very expensive four-year university system by awarding students diplomas that the U.S. government and all federal contractors will recognize in the future.”

Shortly after Harvard student groups released the statement, school president Claudine Gay responded in a statement: “As the events of the last few days continue to resonate, there is no doubt that I condemn the terrorist atrocities committed by Hamas.” Inhumanity is abhorrent, regardless of individual opinions about the origins of long-standing conflicts in the region.

“In this matter, as in other cases, let me point out that while our students have the right to speak for themselves, no student group – not even 30 student groups – speaks for Harvard University or its leadership.”
