“Trump has done more for Blacks than all the other Presidents combined! Are we together?” a Twitter user replied to a tweet from Trump attacking MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace.

Trump calls Howard Zinn’s work ‘propaganda’ — hear the legendary historian in his own words

Published

on

This week President Trump described the work of the legendary historian Howard Zinn, who died in 2010, as “propaganda” meant to “make students ashamed of their own history.” But Zinn believed the opposite, that teaching the unvarnished truth about history was the best way to combat propaganda and unexamined received wisdom.
