Florida A&M University student Chrichanni Watson recently said during an interview with the conservative Breitbart News Daily that President Donald Trump is “making progress” for historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs), citing how he signed for these institutions to be permanently funded.
She had raving reviews about Trump, saying, “I personally think he’s making progress,” she said. “The first thing that I looked into, especially at my university, is how he recently signed for HBCU’s to be permanently funded.”
“That directly impacts us, as HBCU students, and that’s something that cannot be said for the last administration. I mean, you’ve got to give the man some credit.”
Of her experience with FAMU students if someone utters Trump’s name on campus, she said “all ears are shut off.”:
“They’re not receptive to it. If you’re trying to get their attention, the last thing you want to mention is the president.
This summer, I said something about this president on Twitter and my school definitely was not receptive of it. They were calling me sell out, they were saying I was brainwashed, they were saying all these things, and the tweets just would not end.”
Watson said that she had the opportunity to work in the nation’s capital with a Republican representative, her first experience with the conservative movement. This lead to her wanting to bring back the same energy at FAMU.
