Donald Trump’s website includes a page on education policy. The page includes bullet points listing Trump’s “vision” on both K-12 and higher education. The bullet points on higher education are as follows:
- “Work with Congress on reforms to ensure universities are making a good faith effort to reduce the cost of college and student debt in exchange for the federal tax breaks and tax dollars.”
- “Ensure that the opportunity to attend a two or four-year college, or to pursue a trade or a skill set through vocational and technical education, will be easier to access, pay for, and finish.”
In September 2016, Trump gave a speech about college affordability and criticized the spending decisions of universities with “multi-billion dollar endowments.” During that speech, he said, “The students are choking on those loans. They can’t pay them back. Before they start, they’re in trouble. And it’s something I hear more and more and it’s one of the things I hear more than anything else.”
