Hours after the president of Howard University met with President Donald Trump on Monday, graffiti appeared on campus.

Someone wrote, “Welcome to Trump's Plantation. Overseer Wayne A.I. Frederick” Frederick is Howard University's president.

Trump signed an executive order Tuesday, moving the federal initiative on Historically Black Colleges and Universities from the Department of Education to the White House. It's intended to strengthen the finances of HBCU but doesn't specify any new federal funding.
