"You people" is wrong
To close out Black History Month, President #Donald Trump met with a group of African-American leaders at the White House. After speaking to the group in question, the president is now being accused of using an insensitive term to describe those in attendance.
According to the report in Buzzfeed, six people who were in the room have confirmed that Donald Trump referred to the group of African-American leaders as "you people." "You people are doing an amazing job," Trump reportedly said, before repeating the term at least three more times during the meeting.
The comment allegedly "raised eyebrows," and was later described as "Trump being Trump." One of the leaders who was in the room said Trump's use of the term was "very insensitive."
