WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump visited the National Museum of African American History and Culture on Tuesday. The president toured the museum's exhibits with a group that included Ben Carson and Carson's wife, Candy, as well as the president's daughter Ivanka, aide Omarosa Manigault and museum staff.
"Honestly, it's fantastic," Trump said of the museum.
The museum includes an exhibit dedicated to Carson's rise from poverty to prominent pediatric neurosurgeon, which the group stopped to admire and pose for photos.
Carson was one of Trump's rivals in the GOP primary and is the president's pick to serve as the next secretary of Housing and Urban Development.
Trump's wife Melania Trump visited the museum last week with Sara Netanyahu.
