President Donald Trump predicted on Twitter Tuesday that some good may come from the controversy over Friday's showdown between some Catholic schoolboys and a Native American drummer.

"Nick Sandmann and the students of Covington have become symbols of Fake News and how evil it can be. They have captivated the attention of the world, and I know they will use it for the good - maybe even to bring people together. It started off unpleasant, but can end in a dream!"

After Friday's March For Life in Washington, D.C., Nick Sandmann, who was wearing a Make America Great Again cap,  and other Catholic school students were waiting for a bus when there appeared to be a nonviolent showdown occurred between some of the boys and Nathan Phillips, a 64-year-old Native American who was playing a traditional chant on a drum.

Initial media reports claimed the boys were taunting Phillips, prompting widespread shaming of the young men on social media and in media reports, before that scenario later was revealed to be untrue.

Trump tweeted Monday afternoon that the boys had been treated "unfairly."
