A former NFL player declared President Trump the “first black president” Thursday during a Black History Month round table discussion at the White House.

“Mr. President, I don’t mean to interrupt, but I’ve got to say this because it’s Black History Month: man, you are the first black president,” Former NFL safety Jack Brewer, who was a guest at the roundtable, told Trump.

The comment sparked a round of applause from the president’s other supporters who were in attendance, which included Martin Luther King Jr.’s niece Alveda King, conservative media personalities Diamond and Silk and others.

Brewer said he was a Democrat all his life until he was “changed” and “inspired” by President Trump.
