“I’m going to call the police,” the white man on the video says as his child begs him not to.

The black man advises the white man that he’s recording on video.

“You don’t need to threaten me,” the white man complains before telling police: “There’s a trespasser in my building.”

“Daddy, please don’t,” the boy tells he father. “I agree with him, daddy. Please don’t! I don’t like this. I don’t like this. Let’s go.”

“He appears to be African-American,” the white man explains to the 911 dispatcher.

“Listen to your son, walk away,” the black man says. “I’ll stop the recording.”

“Dad, let’s go now,” the son insists.

Despite the fact that President Donald Trump still refuses to have Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to Washington for an officials meeting — a topic at the center of the scandal driving Trump’s impeachment — the White House hosted Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Monday.
