The White House is again facing strong criticism over the lack of diversity of the participants in its intern program.
A photograph released on Friday shows President Donald Trump posing with the spring intake, who are overwhelmingly white:
In a tweet, political scientist and Washington Post columnist, Brian Klaas said “the White House intern photo is like a Where’s Waldo for a non-white person — in a country that is about 40% non-white,”
Other commenters compared the current intake to those from former President Barack Obama’s time in office:
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.
