(NBC News)  President Donald Trump spoke out against racism and anti-Semitism Tuesday following a tour of the National Museum of African American History and Culture.

“This tour is a meaningful reminder of why we have to fight bigotry, intolerance, and hatred in all its very ugly forms.”

The visit comes a week after the president said Representative Eelijah Cummings had canceled a White House meeting, calling it “bad politics.”
