WASHINGTON, D.C. (WKYT) - The video between Covington Catholic students and a Native American man has caught the attention of President Donald Trump.

Looking like Nick Sandman & Covington Catholic students were treated unfairly with early judgements proving out to be false - smeared by media. Not good, but making big comeback! “New footage shows that media was wrong about teen’s encounter with Native American” @TuckerCarlson— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 22, 2019
Nick Sandmann, the student seen in the video and mentioned by President Trump released his own statement Sunday. It reads in part:
"I can only speak for myself and what I observed and felt at the time. But I would caution everyone passing judgement based on a few seconds of video to watch the longer video clips that are on the internet, as they show a much different story than is being portrayed by people with agendas."
