President Trump Remarks at Black Leadership Summit
President Trump delivered remarks at the Young Black Leadership Summit in the East Room of the White House. The president began his remarks by addressing the arrest of a suspect in the suspicious packages case, in which mail bombs were sent to various high-profile Democrats and critics of the Trump administration, including former Presidents Obama and Clinton. “These terrorizing acts are despicable and have no place in our country,” said the president. “We must never allow political violence to take root in America.” He called on Americans to unify and continue to show the world “just how truly great we are.” close
