It took a Black Secret Service agent to explain Juneteenth to Trump

Trump told WSJ that neither he nor any of his staff seemed to know the meaning of the holiday before furor over Tulsa rally

Donald Trump has told an interviewer that he was informed about the Juneteenth holiday that commemorates the ending of slavery in the US by one of his own Secret Service agents, who is black.

Trump recently caused anger and raised fears of major social unrest by scheduling his first public campaign rally since the coronavirus pandemic broke out for 19 June, which is the date when Juneteenth is celebrated and how the day got its nickname.

Sometimes folks actually have sufficient intellectual honesty, curiosity about history, to find out stuff on their own. Not necessarily a requirement for residents of the White House.

    I have to admit, I never heard of it. But why would I? It was so long ago, and I grew up in a different state. But now that I’ve heard of it, I read up on it. Talk about tragic! Such a horrible event in a horrible time. All because of one white person who, most likely, had a grudge against blacks.

    hey, that’s not fair, if a black Secret Service agent had explained something to Trump, it means Trump finally learned something.
    I assume then Trump has this black agent reassigned, since he didn’t feel safe near a black man with a gun.
