Students Subjected To Yearbook Censorship Receive Thanks, Praise, And Surprise From Trump

Earlier this month, there was quite an uproar over the fact that some students from Wall Township High School in New Jersey had their yearbooks censored. The students that were censored were either wearing items that suggested support for President Donald Trump, or in one case had included a quote from Trump to be posted alongside their pic. A member or members of the yearbook committee decided that wasn’t going to fly. As a result, pics were edited, and quotes were left out.

The students and their families were quite ticked off about the whole thing, and the matter was brought to the attention of school administrators. To the school’s credit, they launched an investigation and came out in defense of the students that were censored. The school's yearbook club adviser was suspended as a result of the situation, and all of the school’s yearbooks will be reissued without any edits.

As Fox News Insider shares, that’s not the only good news to come out of this for the students and their families. Trump himself got wind of what happened, and he issued a nod of support on social media.

"Thank you Wyatt and Montana - two young Americans who aren’t afraid to stand up for what they believe in. Our movement to #MAGA is working because of great people like you!" Trump wrote.

It gets better. As in a whole lot. In addition to the nice post, Trump saw to it that the students received a nice letter thanking them for standing up for what they believed in, as well as a whole bunch of Trump swag. The letter was from Michael Glassner, the executive director of Trump’s campaign, and it was a touching one that let them know the Trump administration has their back.

"It is more important than ever that we, as Americans, stand up for our beliefs and hopes for a better country," he wrote. "And, as you know, it takes courage to do so. But freedom of expression should never go out of style - let's not forget that!"

It took a whole lot of courage for these students and their families to stand up in the face of this outrageous abuse of power. The school deserves a ton of credit for handling it so well, but those that were suspended need to take a long hard look at themselves to determine they’re in the right line of work. It certainly doesn’t sound like it, as there’s no place for teaching kids that it’s simply okay to bury things that make you sad or verklempt.

"I wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors and, on behalf of President Trump and Vice President Pence, thank you again for your support. Let's work to Make America Great Again!" the letter continued.

Sounds like these kids are well on their way to doing just that. As you can imagine, they were absolutely tickled to receive some recognition from the president himself, and we would imagine they’ll be voting Trump-Pence come 2020.

Controversy started when students noticed their photos had been altered.

The Trump team thanked them for their support.
