RNC Credits GOP For Creation Of Juneteenth Holiday

Raw Story reports:

Republican National Committee head Ronna McDaniel sent out an appreciation of the new Juneteenth federal holiday signed into reality by President Joe Biden and attempted to give all the credit to the GOP because Republican President Abraham Lincoln was the one behind the Emancipation Proclamation.

Politico reports:

In our interview, one year ago this week, Trump told me that he had made Juneteenth a day to remember. “Nobody had heard of it,” Trump told me. He was surprised to find out that his administration had put out statements in each of his first three years in office commemorating Juneteenth.

“Oh really?” he said. “We put out a statement? The Trump White House put out a statement?” Each statement, put out in his name, included a description of the holiday. But such details were irrelevant to him. Instead, he insisted, “I did something good. I made Juneteenth very famous.”
