President Donald Trump tweeted Monday that he felt Nick Sandmann & Covington Catholic students were treated unfairly in regards to the internationally-publicized encounter that took place in Washington DC at the Lincoln Memorial.
In his tweet, Trump posted: “Looking like Nick Sandman[n] & Covington Catholic students were treated unfairly with early judgements proving out to be false - smeared by media. Not good, but making big comeback! “New footage shows that media was wrong about teen’s encounter with Native American”
President copied @TuckerCarlson on the tweet, who is the host of "Tucker Carlson Tonight" weeknights on Fox News.
Criticisms on both sides of the fence have been posted on social media at a fever pitch and last evening the hashtag #CovingtonBoys was trending on Twitter at the top spot.
