People Are Not Happy About This Photo Trump Published

Last night, POTUS uploaded a picture to his official Twitter account that caused quite the controversy. The photo shows a grinning group, all doing Trump's signature thumbs-up sign.

Seems pretty standard, right? Well, it's not.

You may ask, "Okay, so what's the problem?" Well, we'll give you a couple of seconds to stare at the photo.

Ready? Okay: Everyone in the picture is white and male, except for the lone woman...Who also happens to be white. Hey, 1950s, 2017 is calling, and it wants to know how it can be more like you.

We've written before about how the lack of diversity in Trump's cabinet is problematic. (Even if he's now trying to hire a Latino for the Labor Secretary position after his first pick dropped out.)

A cabinet, a Congress, and a staff that don't even try to resemble the racial, ethnic, and gender makeup of the U.S. is not only questionable — it's down right insulting.

And we're not the only ones who think so. Twitter users were also pretty unhappy about it.

@POTUS This picture is so white I need sunglasses.

@POTUS America has been great because of the diversity brought to our country by people of all identities. Shame on you for ignoring them.

@felixsalmon Oh look, I see a woman. They've really come a long way.

This photo is oddly impressive in its retrogradeness. This takes serious effort in 2017.
Wajahat Ali Verified account
A white woman is now the token minority.

We feel like this should be obvious, but in case it's not: President Trump, it's 2017. Please do better.

Correction: An earlier version of this headline misidentified the people in the picture as President Trump's staff members. They're members of Congress.

Photo of people who are willing to sacrifice and serve our country- if they were all black and women would it matter / no - what matters is that America gets the job done - period - also most of them are taking a pay cut to serve us
