President Donald Trump visited the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington D.C. on Tuesday.
He spoke about its tremendous significance in American history and made an inspiring promise about freedom for every American and African American:
“Today and every day of my presidency, I pledge to do everything I can to continue that promise of freedom for African Americans and for every American,” Trump said. “So important. Nothing more important.”
Trump praised the African American heroes of history. He specifically named Sojourner Truth, Harriet Tubman, Frederick Douglass, Booker T Washington and Rosa Parks.
“I’m deeply proud that we now have a museum that honours the millions of African American men and women who built our national heritage, especially when it comes to faith, culture and the unbreakable American spirit,” he said.
On his museum tour, the President was accompanied by Dr. Ben Carson and his family, South Carolina Senator Tim Scott, and Alveda King — Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s niece, reports Breitbart.
Dr. Carson, whose work as a surgeon is featured in the museum as part of an exhibit, is awaiting his confirmation as Secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Trump announced his administration plans after Carson is confirmed:
“We’re going to do great things in our African American communities together,” Trump said. “I look forward to watching that. He’ll do things that nobody ever thought of.”
President Trump was very satisfied with the tour and tweeted how much he enjoyed it:
Very much enjoyed my tour of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture…A great job done by amazing people!
