President Donald Trump’s Columbus Day message is a little different from that of his predecessor, with the Republican opting to leave out any mention of Native Americans.
In a Columbus Day message released on Friday that proclaims Monday as the day the U.S. will celebrate the discovery of the Americas, Trump made no metion of the people who suffered as a result of the discovery.
“Five hundred and twenty-five years ago, Christopher Columbus completed an ambitious and daring voyage across the Atlantic Ocean to the Americas. The voyage was a remarkable and then-unparalleled feat that helped launch the age of exploration and discovery,” Trump’s message said.
