Trump weighed in on the controversy on Monday, tweeting his support for the students he claims “have become symbols of Fake News and how evil it can be.”
However, new footage has emerged showing one of the students, who has yet to be identified but is part of a group of teens that includes students from Covington Catholic High School, shouting, “It’s not rape if you enjoy it.”
Some students can be heard laughing, while others gasped.

A new video emerged on social media this week reportedly showing the Covington Catholic High School boys ‘harassing’ a group of young women shortly before the viral confrontation between a Native American elder and the students.
The New York Post on Monday reported that photographs of students from the same school in ‘blackface’ have emerged.
A number of students have shared stories of discrimination they allege happened at the hands of Covington Catholic High School students.
In a lengthy Twitter thread, Mac Duckworth claims after he came out as gay, he was harassed and threatened by Covington Catholic students.
