President Donald Trump met with African-American leaders Wednesday to kick off the start of African-American History month.
“This story is one of unimaginable sacrifice,” said Trump who hosted a listening session. “I am proud to honor this heritage and will be honoring it more and more.”
President Trump voiced promises he would like to keep during his time as president with Dr. Ben Carson by his side – his new Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary.
“We need more jobs. We need better wages. We’re going to work a lot in the inner cities,” said Trump.
The president called for an end to violence in the country – specifically pointing out Chicago.
“What’s happening in Chicago should not be happening in this country,” said Trump.
