Trump vetoes Conressional override of Ed. Sec. DeVos’s rule on college fraud

President Donald Trump on Friday vetoed a measure that would have overturned a policy that Education Secretary Betsy DeVos issued in 2019 making it harder for students to get their loans erased after being defrauded by for-profit colleges. The Senate passed the bipartisan measure in March, dealing a rare rebuke of DeVos from the Republican-led chamber. Because of Trump’s veto, DeVos’ rule remains.

‘The Senate gave final approval to the bipartisan measure in March, dealing a rare rebuke of DeVos from the Republican-led chamber. But Trump on Friday said DeVos' rules are better than an Obama-era policy that would have been restored if the measure succeeded. In issuing his veto, Trump said the rules created by former President Barack Obama “defined educational fraud so broadly that it threatened to paralyze the nation’s system of higher education.” So, basically Trump sides with predatory lenders taking advantage of students because screw Obama. What a child.
