In Debate, Hillary Clinton Speaks Of “Trump Effect” In K–12 Schools.
During Sunday’s presidential debate, Hillary Clinton blamed Donald Trump’s campaign rhetoric for an increase in tension in American schools. “Children listen to what is being said,” Clinton said. “And there’s a lot of fear. In fact, teachers and parents are calling it the Trump effect. Bullying is up. A lot of people are feeling uneasy. A lot of kids are expressing their concerns.” She spoke about a 10-year-old boy, Felix, who was adopted from Ethiopia. “This is the only one country he’s ever known. And he listens to Donald on TV and he said to his mother one day, ‘Will he send me back to Ethiopia if he gets elected?’”
