SMH at #45!
Monday, Donald Trump honored a group of Native Americans at the White House & made a reference to Pocahontas while doing so.
He commemorated the men in front of former President Andrew Jackson's picture which has some folks raising their eyebrows because Jackson was known for his harsh treatment of Native Americans. Andrew Jackson was also the president who signed the Indian Removal Act, which led to thousands of Native American deaths & tens of thousands who were forced to relocate.
