Yearbook Scandal Puts Two Teens In The Spotlight - Trump Campaign Takes Notice

When it comes the presidency of Donald Trump, American society remains deeply divided. Now, two high school students have become embroiled in a censorship scandal after their school, Wall High, deliberately censored a pro-Trump photo and quote in the school’s yearbook. While the full story remains unclear, high school students Montana Dobrovich-Fago and her brother, Wyatt, made headlines after revealing that their school’s yearbook editor had changed their yearbook submissions to edit out their pro-Trump messages.

On the school’s picture day, Wyatt, a Wall High junior, had decided to wear a vest with Mr. Trump’s campaign symbol emblazoned on the front. However, when Wyatt received his yearbook, he noticed that his photo had been intentionally cropped, removing the logo from the photo.

Montana was embroiled in a similar situation when she tried to submit a quote by President Trump to the yearbook. Montana was the president of her freshman class, meaning that she was allowed to select a quote for her yearbook photo. Montana chose to use one of the President’s more famous quotations: "I like thinking big. If you are going to be thinking anything, you might as well think big." However, Montana’s quote was nowhere to be found when the yearbook was published and released to Wall High students.

Montana and Wyatt were both appalled that their school’s yearbook club advisor would censor the logo and quote of the 45th and current President of the United States, and with some effort, managed to have the yearbook advisor suspended from Wall High. It has been arranged that all the students’ yearbooks be reissued, uncensored and with photos and Trump quotes present.

While this is one of many yearbook scandals to plague schools across America, Montana and Wyatt’s outspoken political submissions earned them a personal message from the president himself. President Trump took to popular social media platform Facebook, posting a written letter to personally thank Montana and Wyatt for their support of his presidency, and to commend their commitment to ‘freedom of expression’.

The one-page letter written by executive director Michael Glassner, on behalf of the president, indicated that the Trump administration was “dismayed to learn that [their] Trump shirt and Trump quote were censored in [their] High School yearbook.” The letter went on to emphasize the importance of solidarity for Americans, stating “it is more important than ever that we, as Americans, stand up for our beliefs and hopes for a better country… freedom of expression should never go out of style… let’s not forget that!”

The letter, enclosed with a number of President Trump’s campaign merchandise, concluded by wishing the two children the best of luck for their future, and asked them to “work to Make America Great Again!”. The post, penned by the President, was captioned “Thank you Wyatt and Montana- two young Americans who aren’t afraid to stand up for what they believe in. Our movement to #MAGA [Make America Great Again] is working because of great people like you!”
