Advanced Placement U.S. History (APUSH) textbooks are covering the White House term of former President Donald Trump in an extremely biased light, according to a new investigative report from conservative Greg Price.
In a Substack article posted earlier this week, Price laid out a number of instances of wildly inaccurate coverage of Trump’s term in office in some of the country’s most-used history textbooks.
Human Events’ Jack Posobiec discussed Price’s revelations during a segment from his show on “Real America’s Voice.”

In his bombshell article, Price revealed that “nearly all” of the textbooks he reviewed blamed “Russian meddling” for Trump’s 2016 victory, despite that myth being debunked years ago, even by many on the left.
In the same vein, the texts also leave out details of the Trump-Russia media narrative, the Steele Dossier, and the FBI’s unprecedented FISA abuses.
Nearly all of the textbooks claim “Russian meddling” was responsible for the 2016 election of Donald Trump, despite that narrative being debunked through multiple studies and news reports. A New York University Center for Social Media and Politics study found that Russian Twitter accounts had no measurable impact on the 2016 election. Facebook’s internal investigation also found that 56% of the $100K worth of Facebook ads purchased by Russians in 2016 were viewed on the platform after the election was over.
They also leave out all the details of how the Trump/Russia media narrative unraveled. None of them mention the phony Steele Dossier, how the FBI abused FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) to spy on Trump, the illegal unmasking of Michael Flynn, how officials like John Brennan, James Clapper, and Rep. Adam Schiff lied to the public about Russian collusion, or the role Hillary Clinton’s campaign played in feeding false Trump/Russia stories to the press.
Authors of one textbook reportedly claim that Trump “refused in 2017 to condemn a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia” – which is yet another lie:
On the day the Charlottesville rally occurred, Trump said, “We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence.”
Two days later, he issued a statement saying, “KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans.”
