President Trump’s son, Don Jr., addressed the first annual Turning Point USA Young Black Leaders Summit in Washington, D.C., on Thursday evening.

The summit featured hundreds of young black conservative students from across the country who gathered to hear from conservative black leaders, members of the administration, President Trump and his family.

Don Jr. opened up the event with a speech about the president’s accomplishments for all Americans, including black Americans.

The spirited speech was punctuated with calls from the audience to Trump. Don Jr.’s speech was often interrupted with chants of “USA! USA! USA!” and calls to “build the wall.”

Trump was describing historically low unemployment for the black community under his father’s administration when one of the students yelled, “I’m off the plantation!”
