Mandy Manning is the nation's teacher of the year.
The Spokane, Washington high school teacher handed the president letters from refugees and wrote a speech about her experience helping vulnerable students, which Trump would not allow the press pool to witness.
So Van Jones gave Manning a chance to read the speech on his CNN show Saturday afternoon.
"Get uncomfortable, challenge your own perceptions to find clarity," she said. "Be fearless, be kind, meet someone new."
