At Black History Month Event, Trump Suggests Frederick Douglass is Still Alive

Trump, Marking Black History Month, pledges to reduce violence in cities and improve schools

"During this month, we honor the tremendous history of the African-Americans throughout our country, throughout the world if you really think about it, right?", stated the commander-in-chief on Wednesday.

An opening ceremony, guest speakers and gospel singers are among the programs that will be a part of the University of Memphis celebration of Black History Month.

"Let's be honest. This is the same person who left Jews off of the Holocaust Remembrance Day", the Daily Show host, 32, said, referring to Trump's White House statement last month that pointedly left out the word "Jews".

The room full of press and supporters seemed to laugh at every comment made by Trump until he said, "I don't like watching fake news", which didn't draw much of a reaction. "We do confirm that we have seen an increase of sales for Frederick Douglass' titles since yesterday's comments", they said.

"There's a huge unknown history of black Islanders on P.E.I. since that time, and a lot of those families are still here". And it was never even touched.

" ... We believe, if he had more time to elaborate, the President would have mentioned the following: Frederick Douglas has done an wonderful job ..." Ben is going to be doing that big league. "And their story is one about unimaginable sacrifice, hard work and faith in America".

If you're unfamiliar with Dr. King, don't worry about it, because Trump knows some other heroic African-Americans.
