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.
While some shouted “USA! USA!” others energetically voiced calls to “build the wall.”
The president’s son was detailing the all-time low unemployment figures for the black community under the current administration, when one of the undergraduates yelled, causing a loud eruption in the premises: “I’m off the plantation!”
Many applauded the gathering, expressing hope it would get much coverage, with one user even branding the event as “historically significant,” saying it should leave one in jubilation.

Another pointed in response to the Democrats having failed to deliver on their promises for decades. As one questioned this, another user butted in mentioning “Opportunity Zone Program” “for one”:

On Friday President Trump welcomed hundreds of young black conservatives to the White House for the annual summit organized by the student activist group Turning Point.
President Trump has so far delivered a number of historically relevant achievements for black Americans during his term. For instance, back in May, the lowest African American unemployment rate in the country’s history was registered, while the 2.4 percent gap between white and black unemployment recorded at the time appeared the smallest ever.
