Racism? Donald Trump’s White House Intern Program Is Again Very, Very White
The White House is again facing strong criticism over the lack of diversity of the participants in its intern program.

Trump’s White Houe faced similar accusations over the program last summer when people noticed how photographs of Vice President Mike Pence posing with interns featured very few people of color.
