    Trump proposes reversing an Obama era policy of having more fruits and vegetables for school children and wants them to eat more burgers, French fries, and pizza. It reads, "USDA Deputy Under Secretary Brandon Lipps announced new proposed rules for the Food and Nutrition Service that would allow schools to cut the amount of vegetables and fruits required at lunch and breakfasts while giving them the ability to sell more pizza, burgers and fries to students."

    And "the potato lobby has been pushing for this change, and the potato industry was behind a change that happened quietly last March. The USDA allowed school food authorities participating in the School Breakfast Program to substitute potatoes in place of fruit without including vegetables in the weekly menus."

    I read the article. I think there are four factors driving Trump's decision:

    1. Trump did it on Michelle Obama's birthday. It's kind of "in your face Michelle". Michelle, of course, was a champion for nutritious school lunches and worked hard to make kids more healthy including growing vegetables with the kids help on the White House grounds. The vegetable garden is still there, but it is maintained by the National Park Service and private funding.

    2. This was another Obama law and Trump has promised to undo every Obama law and executive action. Trump has an "Obama syndrome".

    3. Trump wants the votes of the potato industry that has lobbied for this change so they can sell more potatoes.

    4. Trump wants school kids to look more like him. Fat and heavy.

    Yes it is the "Obama syndrome" the same with Iran; he managed to have 167 people killed due to his actions; Obama never managed that. Let alone the four (or more?) "murders" Trump committed by "phone". Also he is responsible for the killing of lots of Kurds due to an "phone call"

    All if this is not brought to the surface as it should; are the hands of the FBI tied by Trump and his cronies?

    I'm surprised that all of these things are not part of the "impeachment" ; they should be.
