U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz schooled a professor at his alma mater Harvard University in U.S. history after the professor made a factual blunder about the origins of America.
According to The Daily Caller, Joyce Chaplin, a professor of American studies at Harvard, took to Twitter to slam President Donald Trump’s decision to pull the U.S. out of the Paris Climate Agreement, a move which Trump announced would put thousands of Americans back to work within their own country.
“The USA, created by int’l community in Treaty of Paris in 1783, betrays int’l community by withdrawing from
#parisclimateagreement today,” Chaplin wrote in a June 1, 2017 post.
But Cruz, a conservative constitutionalist, wasn’t going to let Chaplin get away with her twisted version of America history. Instead, he responded to Chaplin on Twitter and explained how the United States was really created.
