Trump speaks at Jamestown anniversary event

President Trump addressed at the 400th Anniversary of the First Representative Legislative Assembly of Jamestown, Virginia, on Tuesday, as he continues to blast Rep. Elijah Cummings and Baltimore.

During Mr. Trump's remarks, a single protester was led out of the event as he held a sign that read "deport hate." Chants of "Trump" drowned out the demonstrator as he was removed by police. 

Some black lawmakers boycotted the event, and Richmond Mayor Levar Stoney resigned from the Jamestown Committee in protest of the invitation extended to the president, saying Mr. Trump "denigrates our democracy." 

Ahead of the celebration, the president tweeted, "Heading to Jamestown, Virginia. Word is the Democrats will make it as uncomfortable as possible, but that's ok because today is not about them!"

This event is now over.
