President Donald Trump visited the Smithsonian African American Museum on Tuesday. He was accompanied by Alveda King, niece of Martin Luther King Jr.

At the display of a stone auction block, on which African slaves would stand while being sold, Trump commented, “Boy, that is just not good. That is not good.” Later, coming upon a set of shackles that were used to restrain slave children, Trump stated, “That is really bad… That is really bad.”
