Why did President Trump set up 1776 Commission?
1776 Commission is a national commission set up by President Trump to promote “patriotic education” in the country. This initiative is aimed at appeasing Trump’s conservative voter base. It is a counter to ‘The 1619 project’, a collection of essays of African American history of the past four centuries. The 1776 Commission Report was released by the White House just days before President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration.
