Trump Meets With ‘Victims of Obamacare,’ Ignores The Only Asians There

On Monday, Donald Trump gave a speech heavily criticizing the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare, at the White House. His goal is to pressure Senate Republicans to repeal and replace Obamacare.

Just before delivering the statement, Trump met with families who described themselves as “victims of Obamacare”.

However, some netizens couldn’t help but point out a potentially racist moment from Trump when he seemingly shook a little boy’s hand, then completely ignores the two little Asian girls standing next to him.

As you can see in the video, the President completely ignores the girls and immediately goes to shakes the other hands of children who were White.

Was this an honest mistake? Or nah? You decide!
