From the Catholic Herald:
Senior US politicians, including President Trump, have come out in defence of the Covington Catholic High School students.
Trump said the students were “treated unfairly” and “smeared by the media” after new footage emerged contradicting initial reports that the students engaged in racist behaviour. The students were vilified on social media following an exchange with a Native American tribal leader at the Washington March for Life on Friday, later identified as Nathan Philips from the Omaha tribe. Initial media reports suggested the students had engaged in racist behaviour, leading to condemnation the students’ school and local diocese, as well as from celebrities and politicians.
