Betsy DeVos comes from a family that believes in Christian values and moral righteousness. Her strong Christian Reform values are on display as she carves a new education program out of the antiquated public school system. Betsy is a Dutch Calvinist who wants to marry Christianity and politics in the United States. DeVos isn’t the only Trump administration official who is trying to make America a Christian state. Attorney General Jeff Sessions is doing his part to discriminate and disrespect Americans who are should have equal rights regardless of their religion, gender, or sexual behavior.
Betsy wants to advance God’s Kingdom by turning the public school system into a religious-based program. And President Trump is giving her the ammunition she needs to make “public schools great again.” Even though Betsy doesn’t have the right credentials to dismantle the public school system, she is doing a good job turning public schools into charter public schools. And it’s not just primary education that is under attack, according to media reports. Betsy is shaking up college rules. She is rewriting the rules that define a college education.
The DeVos family is one of Michigan’s one percent. The DeVos family fortune is in the same league as Jeff Bezos and Bill Gates. In fact, the word on the street before she got the news Trump was going to nominate her was, “her money bought her that nomination.” And her Christian family was the proof Vice President Mike Pence needed to break the tie to get her nomination through the Senate. Pence is another Trump Minion who goes to church every Sunday, but breaks church rules the other six days by discriminating and treating immigrants like they aren’t humans.
The news that one of the DeVos luxury yachts was drifting on its own in Ohio is proof that Betsy has a lot of political enemies. But Betsy is a fierce competitor who can take a political punch or two and still get things done in Washington, according to the New York Times. If there was any doubt that DeVos knows how to play the Washington game, the doubt isn’t there anymore. She plays by her own rules.
Even though the DeVos family is in the news for their non-profit donations to questionable organizations, Betsy is still pushing her agenda down the throat of Americans.
Trump lets Betsy DeVos do the heavy education lifting. He has his hands full trying to dodge the political and legal bullets with his name on them. And Betsy isn’t disappointing Trump. In fact, she is one of a few administration officials that Trump doesn’t bother when he feels the urge to tweet instead of think. Even though Betsy has enemies, she has a lot of Christian friends. And she also has enough money to care less about what people think of her while she puts her stamp on a new education program.
