Donald Trump Made Foster Children a Priority. That Shouldn’t Change Under Biden.

“Every child deserves a family,” begins President Donald Trump’s executive order last June [2020] on “Strengthening the Child Welfare System for America’s Children.”

The Trump administration made foster children a priority, working with state and local groups to place children in loving homes more quickly and to ensure that fewer children are entering the system to begin with.

Lynn Johnson, assistant secretary at the Administration for Children and Families, which is part of the Department of Health and Human Services, joins the show to discuss how that executive order last summer has improved the foster care system and why it’s so important for the incoming Biden administration to continue to make vulnerable children a priority.
