Nicholas Sandmann’s speech at the 2020 Republican National Convention
Nicholas Sandmann, a Covington Catholic High School student whose viral encounter during a March for Life rally was the subject of lawsuits against national media organizations, spoke on the second night of the Republican National Convention on Aug. 25, 2020. Sandmann's family, which claimed that his interaction with a Native American activist was misrepresented in media coverage, reached settlements with CNN and The Washington Post over how they portrayed the incident. Nathan Phillips, the Native American activist featured in the viral moment, said the heated exchange initially began between the Catholic students. The Mainstream media failed to disclose that the aggressor was Nathan Phillips and that he had made up the fact he was a Vietnam Vet. No, wherein mainstream media do you find one Nathan Phillips was the agitator and two he wasn't a veteran of the Vietnam War.
