Black journalists who have been attacked by Donald Trump are getting shown a heap of love on social media.

Many were upset when Trump attacked three Black female journalists this week. He came for American Urban Radio's April Ryan during a Wednesday press conference and again on Friday. At the same presser, the self-proclaimed "nationalist" told PBS NewsHour's Yamiche Alcindor she was asking a racist question.

He spoke to the press again on Friday and ridiculed CNN's Abby Phillips for asking a “stupid question.”



CNN released a statement affirming its support of Phillip:



CNN commentator and journalist Keith Boykin followed that tweet with one of his featuring an informative video compilation that included several examples of 45 attacking Black people. 





Following the president's Friday presser, there has been an outpouring of solidarity with the journalists.









Ryan, Phillip and Alcindor also showed each other support.
