With the emergence of an alternative view of America being taught by The New York Times Magazine's 1619 Project, President Donald Trump vowed to defund schools adopting it.

Responding to a tweetCalifornia will be taking up the 1619 Project doctrine in its schools,Trumptweeted Sunday morning:

"Department of Education is looking at this. If so, they will not be funded!"

The year 1619 was the year African slaves arrived in Virginia, and the projectdoctrine paints that as the beginnings of America and will be sharing that message to students in schools that adopt it.

Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., a stout conservative and American historian, introduced a bill in July to defund schools that adopt the 1619 Project doctrine in their curriculum. Among the areas to do so are Democrat-heavy areas of Chicago and Washington, D.C.,Fox News reported.

The 1619 Project is "a racially divisive, revisionist account of history that denies the noble principles of freedom and equality on which our nation was founded," according to Cotton.

Among the disputed claims in the project is viewing theAmerican Revolution as not intended for independence from Britain but as a path to preserving slavery.

The project creatorNikole Hannah-Jones was awarded the2020 Pulitzer Prize for Commentary.
