Black US lawmakers wear kente cloth to protest Trump’s ‘shithole’ comment

As President Trump claimed credit for lower unemployment among African Americans, cameras at Tuesday’s State of the Union cut to members of the Congressional Black Caucus.

The members, dressed in West African kente cloth to protest Trump after reports he called some African nations “shithole countries,” sat stone-faced and unmoved.

“And something I’m very proud of: African-American unemployment stands at the lowest rate ever recorded.”

As much of the room erupted, the lawmakers, seen below on CBS’ broadcast, raised not a hand. Some looked up or glanced downward.
