Fox Business Network personality Lou Dobbs trended nationwide on Twitter on Thursday after suggesting that President Donald Trump was the best thing to happen to African Americans since President Abraham Lincoln ended slavery.
“This President has done more for African Americans in this country than any President since Lincoln," Dobbs claimed, according to a tweet from the commander-in-chief.
The internet was shocked by the comparison.
