What Would a Donald Trump Presidency Mean for Mothers & Women’s Education?

Updated: June 1, 2016

If Donald Trump were to become President later this year, just what could we expect from him when it comes to education and financial assistance for mothers and women in general?

Not particularly well known for his high concern for women’s issues, there is still a lot to find out about Trump’s potential impact (either good or bad) on people like you who may be a single mother hoping to go back to school, or a woman from a disadvantaged background just needing a hand in paying for your studies.

Whatever the case, this issue is likely going to be a high priority for you when you go to vote in November.

What Will Trump Do For Mothers and Women Who Want To Go Back To School?

Education is not currently listed as a major policy area for the Donald Trump presidential campaign.

One area that is of interest to single mothers, working mothers and other women who want to focus on their education and careers is Trump’s tax reform position. Trump states that, if President, he will aim to “simplify the tax code” to “reduce the headaches Americans face in preparing their taxes and let everyone keep more of their money.”

But what could this really mean for you?

Specifically, and of great interest to mothers doing it tough on a low income, is this proposed Donald Trump policy:

If you are single and earn less than $25,000, or married and jointly earn less than $50,000, you will not owe any income tax.

This essentially means that a single mother who is either working full time, or studying and working part time, will be able to keep every dollar earned up to $25,000 in earnings per year.

There is still much more to learn about what a Donald Trump presidency would mean for mothers and women who are focused on education and creating a better life for their children and family. We will keep you updated as any new policy announcements or comments are made by Donald Trump during the presidency campaign on these highly important issues for working, single, studying and stay at home moms and how it will affect you.

    Republicans committed a capital offense by fostering the conditions and inflaming the attitudes that gave rise to the most preposterous presidential nominee in history. That this ignorant, bigoted, thin-skinned, adolescent, egomaniacal con-man has any conceivable chance of becoming president is sickening. That Republicans have imperiled the future of our great country simply out of selfish craving for more money is treasonous. That their leaders still do not denounce him is beyond the pale. It should never be forgotten.
