    The president’s son gave a spirited speech at a Washington DC gathering, with the audience unable to resist the temptation to share their loud approval. The black leaders’ summit continued on the White House grounds, with the president welcoming the participants in person.

    As POTUS’ eldest son Donald Jr. addressed the first annual Young Black Leaders Summit in Washington DC on Thursday evening, his speech was interrupted multiple times with chants from the audience as well as appeals to the speaker and his father.
