In his first 100 days, President Trump has chipped away at some of Barack Obama’s most useless policies. From ending regulations that unfairly targeted the gun rights of veterans to promoting a sweeping overhaul of the U.S. education system, he has sought to improve the lives of American families.
However, it’s not just Barack Obama’s legacy that President Trump has his sights set on. Former First Lady, Michelle Obama, left quite a disaster as well-at least for American schoolchildren that is. That legacy is her now infamous “healthy school lunches” and it’s finally coming to an end according to The Hill:
Newly minted Agriculture Secretary, Sonny Perdue, is expected to unveil a new rule Monday aimed at giving schools more flexibility in meeting federal nutrition standards for school lunches.

Unfortunately, much like her husband, Michelle’s “change” only served her interests and America’s schoolchildren suffered for it.
Thankfully, we now have a president that can make school lunches “great again.” Maybe we can bring back Twinkies?
