President Trump on Tuesday participated in an awards ceremony for Minority Enterprise Development Week at the White House in Washington, D.C.

Trump last Friday issued a proclamation from the White House declaring Monday, October 22 through Friday, October 28 as Minority Enterprise Development Week.

"During Minority Enterprise Development Week, we recognize the contributions that minority owned businesses make to our economy and our way of life, and we strive to ensure that small business owners have access to the resources they need to achieve the American Dream," he said.

"Let us work together to ensure that every American citizen can flourish and give back to our country and our communities," Trump added.

"I call upon all Americans to celebrate this week with programs, ceremonies, and activities to recognize the many contributions of American minority business enterprises."
