Sen. Tom CottonSen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) faced criticism on Sunday after calling slavery a "necessary evil" as part of the country's founding while discussing his bill that would reduce federal funding for any school that includes The New York Times's 1619 Project in its curriculum.

In an interview with the Arkansas Democrat Gazette, the senator accused the 1619 Project, a series of pieces by writers for the Times that examines the history of slavery in the U.S. and its role in the country's founding, of being "left-wing propaganda."

"[E]ven a penny is too much to go to the 1619 Project in our public schools," Cotton told the news outlet. "The New York Times should not be teaching American history to our kids.”
