Trump Goes on Anti-Media Rant During Black History Month Meeting

"During this month, we honor the tremendous history of the African-Americans throughout our country, throughout the world, if you will think about it, right", Trump read.

"It's not 'OK, now we celebrate black history and African-American history, ' and it's a separate part of a whole year", Miracle said.

Popular Video A judge looked this inmate straight in the eyes and said something that left the entire courtroom in tears. Harriet Tubman, Rosa Parks.

President Trump took a moment from a Black History Month event on Wednesday to take another shot at the "dishonest" media.

Much has been made of President Donald Trump's performance yesterday at the White House surrounding Black History Month; to mark the occasion, the President was joined by a roundtable of influential black community leaders, though he used the spotlight to continue his war against CNN and its 'fake news'.

In his remarks at an event billed as an "African American History Month listening session", Trump cited the erroneous - and quickly corrected - "pool" report on January 20 that the bust of Martin Luther King that President Obama had placed in the Oval Office had been removed.

Looking around the table, Trump singled out Pastor Darrell Scott, for example, who's significant to the president because he saw Scott "defending me on television".

"I think he wants to highlight the contributions that he has made", Spicer said. But of course, Trump wasn't going to get off that easy, as Twitter users got the hashtag #TrumpBlackHistory fired up, ridiculing his bad, awful, no good speech. At that, Ruffin looked straight at the camera and said, deadpan, "Almost as unfortunate as the history of Black America". And it was never even touched. And Paris has done an awesome job in a very hostile CNN community; he's all by himself. Seven people and Paris. We need more jobs, we need better wages, a lot better wages. Instead, the session was about Trump whining about the media and making insane promises like Ben Carson fixing the inner cities, and taking care of gun violence in Chicago. "No politicians, straight street guys, they're going to commit to lower body count and we're going to come in with some social programs".

Meanwhile, The platform is also launching the bot as a way for people to interact and know more about struggle and history of the black community in the US. Right now it's awful. "We're going to make it safe", he said of the "inner city".

The President referred to the group that was attending the hearing, calling them unique and thanking them for their help for improving his image with the African-American community.
