President Trump signed a proclamation honoring Martin Luther King Jr. Friday morning at the White House.
The event comes on the heels of Trump’s controversial remarks calling some third world nations “shitholes” in a private meeting discussing immigration with lawmakers. The comments have caused an enormous media firestorm and fallout for the president. Trump was joined by Dr. Ben Carson, the Vice President and MLK’s nephew at the signing ceremony.
After Trump signed the proclamation declaring Monday (Jan. 15) Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day he shook some guests’ hands and started walking out the door.
As POTUS went wheels up, reporters shouted a number of questions at his back, including one from Urban Radio Network White House Correspondent and CNN Contributor April Ryan. Ryan yelled, “Are you a racist?”at Trump, multiple times, as he was leaving the room.
What a way to end the week.
