Donald Trump – Most Shocking Black History Month Speech Remarks

Yesterday, President Donald Trump gave a speech at a White House event to kick off Black History Month. Unsurprisingly, the majority of the speech had to do with himself. In addition, it seemed clear to most that Trump isn’t exactly the most educated on the topic of Black History. Read on for some of the most shocking moments from his speech.

– He claimed African-Americans are “incredible people” before saying that “I want to thank Ben Carson, who’s gonna be heading up HUD. That’s a big job. That’s a job that’s not only housing, but it’s mind and spirit. Right, Ben? And you understand, nobody’s gonna be better than Ben.”

– Trump turned mentioning Martin Luther King Jr. into another tirade on “fake news,” noting that, “Last month, we celebrated the life of Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., whose incredible example is unique in American history. You read all about Dr. Martin Luther King a week ago when somebody said I took the statue out of my office. It turned out that that was fake news. Fake news.”

– He celebrated Frederick Douglass, although many questioned if he actually knows who that is after he said that, “Frederick Douglass is an example of somebody who’s done an amazing job and is being recognized more and more, I noticed.”

– Trump mentioned a CNN panelist who was there, noting that, “Paris has done an amazing job in a very hostile CNN community. He’s all by himself. You’ll have seven people, and Paris. And I’ll take Paris over the seven. But I don’t watch CNN, so I don’t get to see you as much as I used to. I don’t like watching fake news. But Fox has treated me very nice. Wherever Fox is, thank you.”

– He lamented about administration goals again, explaining that, “We’re gonna need better schools and we need them soon. We need more jobs, we need better wages, a lot better wages. We’re gonna work very hard on the inner city. Ben is gonna be doing that, big league. That’s one of the big things that you’re gonna be looking at.”

– Trump praised his success with the African-American community in the election, detailing that, “wasn’t going to do well with the African-American community, and after they heard me speaking and talking about the inner city and lots of other things, we ended up getting—and I won’t go into details—but we ended up getting substantially more than other candidates who had run in the past years. And now we’re gonna take that to new levels.”

– Finally, he wrapped his speech with talking about Omarosa Manigault, from The Apprentice and now part of his team. He stated that, “I want to thank my television star over here—Omarosa’s actually a very nice person, nobody knows that. I don’t want to destroy her reputation but she’s a very good person, and she’s been helpful right from the beginning of the campaign, and I appreciate it. I really do. Very special.”
