Liberals are launching a campaign to call on Scholastic’s children’s book, “President Donald Trump” of their store for being “dangerous” and the omission of negative information about the commander-in-chief.
A School-based children’s book focused on President Trump is angry with liberal parents, teachers, and authors who are labeled “dangerous” and claim that the commander-in-chief must be described using words like “rapist”, “a wife-beater,” and “Nazis.”
The 32-page children’s book, “President Donald Trump” written by Joanne Lithuania, as part of the Rookie Biographies Series, is aimed at first and second graders between the ages of 6 and 7. It was with the label “pro-Trump propaganda” by Think Progress.
The children of the biography, “ignores acts of resistance, and, crucially, connect a reference to the words and acts of racism, xenophobia, Islamophobia, and misogyny that are defined Trump’s campaign and the presidency”, according to a book with the title “School Tells Kids: Trump is Great” for Social Justice Books, as part of a Teaching for Change.
In an interview with The New York Times last year, Lithuania, lives in New York, said that in her books on Trump, she wanted to provide an objective portrait of the president, with the precise context. She wrote two children’s books about the president.
But liberals were especially incensed with a part of the “President Donald Trump” the book said that the people were “happy” and Trump won the presidency.
“On November 8, 2016, the Americans chose the president. The race was close, but Trump won. Many people were happy,” she wrote in the book. “They looked forward to a new government. They hoped for a stronger country.”
The progressives launched a campaign, “Step Up Scholastic,” the insistence of the company to publish and distribute books that reflect and affirm the identity, the history and the lives of ALL children in our schools.”
An author, Shailja Patel, tweeted: “Hello Scholastic. I want to commend you on expanding the vocabulary of young readers, with words like: pedophile, rapist, wife-beater, Nazis.”
Hi @School. I want to commend you on expanding the vocabulary of young readers, with such words as:
I am sure that you top-selling author, @jk_rowling, is proud of you. https://t.co/ezcoYBvXMj

Another writer, Katrina As, threatened with a boycott: “Hey Scholastic, the glorifying of Donald Trump for children is NOT good. If you continue with the publishing of this piece of propaganda, you can kiss all of the books club and book fair purchases I was planning for this coming school year goodbye.”

ANTI-TRUMP AMERICAN HISTORY TEXTBOOK ‘BLATANTLY BIASED,’ CRITICS SAY
The College Fix reported there was not a similar campaign for Scholastic’s children’s book, “Who Is Barack Obama?” that struck a similar tone for the Trump children’s book.
