Trump, the showman, at work (There is no substance here)

And, moreover, nothing reassuring.

With Blacks Alarmed by His Tone, Trump Meets With Martin Luther King III.  (The New York Times, 1/16/2017.  Print headline:  "Trump, Seeking to Reassure Blacks, Meets With Martin Luther King III")
A hastily arranged meeting.  Mr. Trump on Monday did not address those issues, appearing in the lobby to allow news cameras to capture pictures of him shaking hands with Martin Luther King III, but ignoring questions shouted by reporters about their conversation or his statements about Mr. Lewis.

Preferring the bubble world of Trump Tower, the President-elect canceled plans to visit the Smithsonian Museum of African-American History and Culture.
