Florida teacher suspended after Trump comments


PASCO COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) – A teacher is on administrative leave while officials investigate allegations he made an offensive Donald Trump-related statement toward African-American students at Florida’s Wesley Chapel High School.

The incident came to light when a parent, Donnie Jones Jr., wrote about it on Facebook.

Jones Jr. said his daughter was in the hallway with several other students when teacher and coach John Sousa asked what they were up to. Jones Jr. said Sousa then made the comment, “Don’t make me call Donald Trump to get you sent back to Africa.”

Jones Jr. said he quickly went to the school to complain.
