BLACK HISTORY!

a poem by Donald Trump, taken verbatim from the transcript of his address at the “Black History Month” breakfast, and rearranged in free verse.

 

 

Well this is Black History Month, so

this is our little breakfast, our little

get-together. Hi Lynn, how are you?

Just a few notes.

 

During this month,

we honor the tremendous history of African-Americans

throughout our country. Throughout the world,

if you really think about it,

right?

 

And their story is one of unimaginable sacrifice,

hard work, and

faith

in America.

 

I’ve gotten a real glimpse—during the campaign

I’d go around with Ben to a lot of different places

I wasn’t so familiar with.

They’re incredible people!

And 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.

 

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.

 

The statue is cherished, it’s one of the favorite things in the

—and we have some good ones.

We have Lincoln,

and we have Jefferson,

and we have Dr. Martin Luther King.

 

But they said the statue, the bust of Martin Luther King,

was taken out of the office. And it was never even touched.

So I think it was a disgrace, but that’s the way

the press

is.

Very unfortunate.

 

I am very proud now that we have a museum

on the National Mall where people can learn

about

 

Reverend King,

so many other

things.

 

Frederick Douglass is an example

of somebody

 

who’s done an amazing job and is being recognized

more and more,

I noticed.

 

Harriet Tubman, Rosa Parks, and millions more

black Americans

who made America

what it is today.

 

Big impact.
