Trump Won't Apologize to Central Park Five Following “When They See Us”


President Donald Trump said on Tuesday that he would not apologize for the harsh comments he made about the Central Park Five back in 1989. "Why do you bring that question up now? It’s an interesting time to bring it up," Trump said in response to White House correspondent April Ryan asking if he would apologize to the five teenagers of color. "You have people on both sides of that. They admitted their guilt. If you look at Linda Fairstein, and you look at some of the prosecutors, they think that the city should never have settled that case. So we'll leave it at that." When the teenagers were wrongfully accused and convicted of raping a female jogger, Trump spent $85,000 placing full-page ads in New York City's four daily papers, calling for the return of the death penalty. The case has garnered new attention thanks to Ava DuVernay’s When They See Us series on Netflix.
