Krauthammer: DeVos Nomination ‘Very Encouraging,’ a ‘Tremendous Opportunity’

On Wednesday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Special Report,” columnist Charles Krauthammer praised President-Elect Donald Trump’s nomination of Betsy DeVos to be the Secretary of Education.

Krauthammer said the pick is “very encouraging.” And Trump’s “way of saying that he’s serious about school choice.”

He added, “[T]his, I think, is a tremendous opportunity, because it would make a huge difference in the lives of inner city students, particularly. It will be an opportunity to demonstrate that conservative ideas can work if implemented. And I think it shows seriousness about policy, which has not been as strong a point for the President-Elect, in the form of this nominee.”
