On Wednesday, President Donald Trump honored Juneteenth, the commemoration of the day in 1865 when all slaves were officially freed.


"For millions of African Americans, Juneteenth has served as an opportunity to celebrate the fundamental truth that all people are created equal and that liberty is a right endowed by our Creator," Trump said in a statement issued by the White House.

"Across our country, the contributions of African Americans continue to enrich every facet of American life," Trump continued. "This Juneteenth, as we vow always to uphold the God-given rights of all Americans, we pay tribute to the indomitable spirit of African Americans."

Donald Trump's long history of racialized statements and policies did not go unnoticed, especially after he doubled down on insisting that the Central Park Five were guilty. Online commentators also noted the President's policy of putting migrant kids in camps.
