Jill Biden: As first lady, I will ‘get rid of Betsy DeVos’


Dr. Jill Biden, the wife of presidential hopeful Joe Biden, said if she becomes the first lady, the Bidens will “get rid of” current Education Secretary Betsy DeVos.

“We are going to get rid of Betsy DeVos, number one,” Jill told “Morning Joe” Monday morning when asked as First Lady what would she do for education. “We are going to have a secretary of Education who has been in the classroom. These are all things that I have personally seen and have been important to me as a teacher.”

“When he’s elected president, when you look right next to him, there will be standing a teacher,” she added.
