The News on Betsy DeVos

The New York Times did an article about Betsy DeVos and President Trump. Betsy DeVos tried to calm down tension when Trump announced that he was not going to allow certain laws to continue during his administration. This is a law that was going to directly affect transgender students in school. Betsy DeVos, as a Secretary of Education, decided that she had to get involved in some way. DeVos got in contact with some well known representatives of LGBTQ individuals, and she told them about what the president was planning to do. The president made the announcement, and Betsy DeVos stood by his side; even though she was not in complete agreement with his delivery of this message.
