Happy fourth birthday to Donald Trump learning what Juneteenth is

 


In honor of Donald Trump learning about Juneteenth four years after his administration issued its first Juneteenth statement, DNC Outreach Communications Director Tracy King released the following statement:

Four years ago, on Juneteenth, Donald Trump offended Black Americans in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and across the country, when he attempted to hold one of his extreme MAGA rallies in the very city where a white mob burned down a thriving black business district without much effort. like even knowing the history of this sacred place where he was to speak or the meaning of Juneteenth. Years after taking office, Trump didn't even know what Juneteenth was, but he still had the audacity to erase civil rights advocates and leaders who fought for generations to make become aware of this important day in American history by claiming that it was he who created June 19. famous and that before him, no one had ever heard of it as if black people had not been celebrating this holiday across the country for generations. If Trump was confused about the significance of this holiday, he could have asked the administration official who wrote his June 19 statement that he didn't even know his White House had released it.

For Black Americans, it was just another reminder that our communities and our history are an afterthought or worse, a target for Trump at every turn. Trump's MAGAnomics agenda has shut out Black businesses, destroyed Black workers' jobs, and left Black children behind. Trump has been peddling racist stereotypes about black people for decades, and selling wannabe Jordans and photo t-shirts isn't going to make us forget. Just like when he demanded the execution of the young, innocent black and brown children of the Central Park Five, now called the Exonerated Five, Trump is wrong and wrong.

SHOT: Donald Trump claimed he made Juneteenth famous even though he had never heard of it until he tried to hold a racially insensitive rally on the holiday.

Wall Street Journal: On racial issues, Mr. Trump said a black Secret Service agent explained the meaning of Juneteenth to him as the president faced criticism for initially planning to hold his first campaign rally in three months that day.

The rally is expected to take place in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where in 1921 a mob of white residents attacked and killed members of the black community, destroying a thriving black business district.

Holding a rally that day, especially as racial protests continued across the country, was insensitive, African American leaders told Mr. Trump. He finally postponed the gathering by one day, to June 20.

I did something good: I made Juneteenth very famous, Mr. Trump said, referring to media coverage of the rally date. It's actually an important event, an important moment. But no one had ever heard of it.

CHASER: Trump is so out of touch with reality that he was shocked to learn that his own administration had issued a statement celebrating Juneteenth.

Wall Street Journal: Mr. Trump said he asked many people around him, none of whom had heard of Juneteenth. Mr. Trump interrupted the interview to ask an aide if she had heard of Juneteenth, and she pointed out that the White House had issued a statement last year commemorating the day. Mr. Trump's White House has issued statements on June 19 in each of his first three years.

Oh really? We issued a statement? The Trump White House released a statement? » said Mr. Trump. OK OK. GOOD.

President Joe Biden made Juneteenth a federal holiday during his first year in office, making it the first national holiday established since Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday.
