A Black Secret Service agent called out former President Trump for scheduling a rally in Tulsa on Juneteenth last year. 

The exchange was detailed in an upcoming book from Michael C. Bender, “Frankly, We Did Win This Election: The Inside Story of How Trump Lost,” Politico reports.

Theagent told Trump that it was “offensive” to hold a political rally on the holiday, which commemorates the day when slaves in Texas learned about the end of slavery.  

According to the book, Trump asked the agent about Juneteenth. 

“Yes, I know what it is,” the agent told Trump.

Later that day, Trump announced on Twitter that he was changing the date of the rally.
