AP History textbooks now cover Trump's presidency, the lies are worse than expected
American students are now learning about the Trump Presidency in history class. I always wondered how this would pan out, and it appears to be going exactly as I expected, if not worse. Meaning, lies. Lots of them.
Greg Price, the Communications Director of the State Freedom Caucus Network, reviewed five AP U.S. History textbooks that now contain the Trump Presidency and posted his findings on Twitter and Substack.
For starters, not a single one mention the Steele Dossier, the FBI's abuse of FISA to spy on Trump, the illegal unmasking of Michael Flynn, or the Strzok/Page texts. But they did cover the minimal Russian interference in the 2016 election, and made it seem less-than-minimal.
One claims, "Russia had clearly manipulated the cacophonous social media environment to exploit and amplify political divisions in order to disrupt the American electoral process. The principal beneficiary of the chaos was Donald J. Trump,. which ultimately prompted several investigations into possible collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign."

The book "American Pageant," which is the most commonly used APUSH book in America, refers to Donald Trump as a "sexual predator," but described Bill Clinton as "dogged" by scandal.
"The American Promise" claims Donald Trump refused to condemn the Charlottesville white supremacist rally. Though he did. So very many times.
""Experience History: Interpreting America’s Past" includes the "very fine people hoax." In case you've forgotten, this hoax claims Trump said there were "very fine people on both sides" of the rally, but excludes that he also said, "And I'm not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists; they should be condemned totally -- you had many people in that group other than neo-Nazis and white nationalists."
\u201c"The American Promise" flat out claimed that President Trump refused to condemn Charlottesville. He did it many times.\n\n"Experience History: Interpreting America\u2019s Past" contains the "very fine people on both sides" hoax.\u201d— Greg Price (@Greg Price) 1681788120
One of the books actually goes all the way through to Biden and has some doozies in it. It claims COVID likely started in a wet market and that a policeman died on January 6th. This is presumably a reference to Officer Brian Sicknick who died of a stroke on January 7th. But the book conveniently leaves that detail out.
\u201cOne book "America: A Narrative History" covers through Biden. It says a wet market was the most likely origin of covid, says a "policeman" died on J6 without specifying how Brian Sicknick died the next day of a stroke, and praises Biden's economy w/o mentioning rampant inflation.\u201d— Greg Price (@Greg Price) 1681788120
These are just some of the highlights Price found, so be sure to read the whole story on his Substack for more info. And parents, watch out for what your kids are reading at school. If it isn't porn, it could be completely fabricated history. Because we live in a society.
