Black History Museum a Tribute to 'American Heroes'

Tim Scott was part of a delegation Tuesday to tour the National Museum of African American History and Culture with President Donald Trump.

Trump said he was "deeply proud" that the museum exists to honor "the millions of African-American men and women who built our national heritage".

Trump also condemned the recent anti-Semitic threats targeting the Jewish community and attacks on Jewish community centers, calling it "a very sad reminder" that there's still work to be done "to root out hate". So don't worry - slavery's not coming back so long as Trump's president. That devolved into his reminding the audience that Carson hasn't actually been approved yet for the position of secretary of housing and urban development-a position for which he has zero qualifications, other than being an actual home owner.

"The anti-Semitic threats targeting our Jewish community and community centers are frightful and are painful and a very sad reminder of the work that still must be done to root out hate and prejudice and evil", Trump said.

Trump was just one of more than a million people to visit the museum since it opened September 24, the museum said in a statement Monday. Ben Carson (who is featured in an exhibit at the NMAAHC), Sen.

"Hopefully next week he'll get his approval, about three, four weeks late", Trump said. Trump's daughter, Ivanka, also joined him on the tour led by Lonnie Bunch, the museum's founding director.

Trump called Scott a friend and a "great, great senator". I like the state of SC.

Notably, Trump didn't invite any leaders from prominent African-American advocacy groups like the NAACP, the second time he hasn't included leaders of major black organizations who have been critical of him during events focused on African-American issues. "I like all those states where I won by double, double, double digits".

But he promised, as he has numerous occasions, "We're going to bring this country together, maybe bring some of the world together".
