President Donald Trump has formally reached out to the Covington Catholic High School students to invite them to the White House amid the fake news controversy surrounding their participation in the March for Life.
The student at the center of the controversy, Nick Sandmann, reportedly told The Daily Wire that Trump is serious about hosting the students.
"The President wants to send a plane down to get us,” Sandmann said.
Radio host Laura Ingraham also reported a White House meeting could happen as soon as tomorrow.
President Trump has already expressed support for the teens after it became clear that the media was caught publishing fake news about the incident involving a Native American protester.
“Looking like Nick Sandman & Covington Catholic students were treated unfairly with early judgements proving out to be false - smeared by media,” Trump tweeted.
He added: “Not good, but making big comeback! ‘New footage shows that media was wrong about teen’s encounter with Native American” @TuckerCarlson."
Trump followed that tweet up with another one on Tuesday, slamming the evils of “Fake News.”
“Nick Sandmann and the students of Covington have become symbols of Fake News and how evil it can be,” the president tweeted. “They have captivated the attention of the world, and I know they will use it for the good - maybe even to bring people together. It started off unpleasant, but can end in a dream!”
Covington students broke their silence amid the media smears on Tuesday, claiming there is so much misinformation circulating and it's resulted in death threats against them.
