Trump seeks to wipe away the Obama brand

On Monday, the Trump administration targeted two of the former first lady’s signature programs.

Sonny Perdue, the former Georgia governor who is now Agriculture secretary, announced he would relax some of the rules that had been placed around federally funded school lunch programs.

Those rules were part of a broader effort spearheaded by Michelle Obama to combat childhood obesity. Critics characterized the regulations as overly onerous and said children disliked the meals.

The same day, CNN unearthed an administration memo that said the Peace Corps would cease using the name “Let Girls Learn” — also associated with the former first lady — for its efforts to help overcome gender disparity in education in the developing world.
