Spectators and news readers may have been confused by Betsy DeVos’s seemingly meek response to losing the battle for the transgender bathroom rights. Donald Trump had called for the cancellation of the right that the Obama Administration had put in place during his reign. DeVos fought hard against the passing of the new law to rescind the former law. However, the president chose to side with the Attorney General and religious leaders to rescind those rights. DeVos politely announced to the Education Department’s representative of gay and transgender employees that Trump was going to rescind the rights. Later, in a political conference, DeVos announced that the Obama Administration had gone too far. She used the term overreached, which was a polite way of saying that they overstepped.

 

DeVos didn’t even mention how hard she fought to keep the laws intact. In fact, she didn’t even let on that any rift existed within the Trump Administration. The truth is that she lobbied hard not to sign off on the new law, but the pressure was strong from Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who has decades of experience in politics. Sessions would not compromise at all.

 

Many people are mistaking Betsy DeVos’s meekness in her public speech for an overall timidity. But people who know of her past know of her as one of the most aggressive people around. She has a public grace that makes people think that she is an easy target, but she is actually a force to be reckoned with. She is a strong advocate of public vouchers and providing benefits for the underprivileged student community. She is also a huge contributor to the Republican party, as is her husband, Dick. She is a firm advocate of private schools and private schooling opportunities and has been pushing against the public school system for many years. She doesn’t always win, but she gives every fight that she’s involved in the very best of herself. Her strength and reputation will grow as she works hard for the community.

 

This loss with the transgender bathroom rights was only a minor setback. Betsy DeVos will continue to advocate for the underprivileged, and she will continue to try to make changes in the world that make a difference. Furthermore, her wisdom and experience will grow, and she will learn more as she holds this position. Many people in Washington didn’t think she was going to make it, but she did. She will probably be a much stronger figure when something like this comes along again. Learn more:  http://enablediversity.com/2017/08/11/dick-devos-reveals-the-staggering-amounts-of-money-he-donated-to-charity/

 

Besty and Dick DeVos are a power couple who both belong to massively wealthy families. They use their funds to donate to causes that can help children and other people who can’t help themselves. The DeVos’s have donated to hospitals, education sites, charter schools and more. They’ve also opened up schools and structures of their own. They’re an amazing team in that they have a unified focus, but they are still confident enough to do things separately, as well.
