Trump says executive order coming to protect free speech on campuses

President Trump says he’s going to push back against limits of free speech at colleges, a move that’s cheered by a founder of a major organization that focuses on campus civil rights. Trump, speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference this weekend, said, “Today, I am proud to announce that I will be very soon signing an executive order requiring colleges and universities to support free speech if they want federal research funds.”
