Trump Cracks #MeToo Joke, Claims Black Slaves ‘Just Starting To Get Real Credit’ For Building ‘This Nation’





President Donald Trump attacked prominent African American leaders as con artists while delivering remarks on Friday at the Young Black Leadership Summit in Washington, D.C.

Trump attacked civil rights leader Al Sharpton as a “sort of a third-rate con guy” that tricked NBC into giving him a show before attacking CNN’s Van Jones for supposedly not praising him enough for criminal justice reform.

“I’m the one that did it,” Trump complained.



Trump then claimed that African Americans are “just starting to get real credit” for building “this nation.”

“African Americans built this nation,” Trump said at The White House conference hosted by Turning Point USA. “You built this nation. You know, you’re just starting to get real credit for that. Okay? I don’t know if you know that. You’re just starting to get – you built the nation. We all built it. But you were such a massive part of it.”

“Bigger than you were given credit for. Does that make sense? Right?” Trump asked while pointing to an African-American supporter in the crowd.

Trump later joked that men are no longer allowed to call women beautiful because of the #MeToo movement.

“Under the #MeToo generation, we’re not allowed to say it,” Trump said. “So all of you young, brilliant guys, never ever call a woman beautiful. Please. You’re not allowed to do it.”
