Trump Blasts Anew Wrong Report MLK Bust Removed

President Donald Trump is continuing to complain about an incorrect report that he removed a bust of Martin Luther King Jr. from the Oval Office.

Trump held a listening session dedicated to African-American History Month on Wednesday. Trump praised the civil rights icon and called the report that he had removed a bust a "disgrace."

The reporter later acknowledged the error, saying a Secret Service agent and a door had obstructed his view of the bust when reporters were allowed into the room briefly after Trump's swearing in.

Trump also said he did better in the African-American community than candidates in previous years.

Among African-Americans, Trump got 8 percent of the vote, slightly better than Romney's 6 percent against President Barack Obama, according to national exit polls.
