Children should not be subjected to another COVID-19 lockdown and schools must remain open for in person learning, former President Donald Trump told Fox News’ host Dan Bongino.

“Children have to go back to school,” he said on Saturday’s show “Unfiltered with Dan Bongino.”

The schools have to open. These young people are losing a big part of their life and they’re not going to recover from it

“You know, it’s turned out computers are wonderful and all of that,” he said. “But one thing we’ve learned through college and school, undergraduate, everything, is that being in the school is much better than looking at a computer screen.”

He also slammed the teachers unions and said “the mandates are crazy, what they’re doing with schools now.” 

“The schools have to open. These young people are losing a big part of their life and they’re not going to recover from it,” Trump added. “The schools have to open. What they’re going through socially, I mean, they are not dealing with people. I don’t think they ever – it’s going to leave a scar on their lives. It’s going to leave a psychological scar.” 

“The kids have to get back to school,” he said. “Our children need to be educated.”
