Hayden Williams, the conservative attacked on UC Berkeley’s campus mid-February, was recently invited on stage by President Trump at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Maryland.
As Campus Reform reports, Williams was representing Turning Point USA, trying to recruit new activists, when the 28-year-old assailant, Zachary Greenberg, attacked Williams. The story spread rapidly.
President Trump saw William’s story while watching TV, he said on stage at CPAC:
“I turned on my television the other day and I saw somebody that was violently punched in the face…and I said that’s disgusting”
The President asked Williams to join him on stage and speak shortly after:
“There are so many conservative students across the country that are facing discrimination and harassment and worse, if they dare to speak up on campus so I’m glad that we could bring this to the forefront and I’d just like to say if these socialist progressives had their way, they would put our constitution through the paper shredder in a heartbeat so it’s as important now than ever to work at Leadership Institute and Campus Reform exposing these liberal abuses to the public.”
Williams “took a hard punch in the face for all of us,” said President Trump.
Speaking of hard punches, Trump will be hitting college campuses heavy with an executive order that mandates free speech, the First Amendment of the Constitution. He announced this immediately after Williams spoke about his on-campus assault:
“Today, I’m proud to announce that I will be personally signing an executive order requiring colleges and universities to support free speech if they want federal research dollars… If they want our dollars, and we give it to them by the billions, they’ve got to allow people like Hayden – and many other young people and old people – to speak. And if they don’t, it will be very costly.”
There is no further news as to when President Trump will sign this mandate into action or the true effect that it will have on liberal university campuses.
