What did US President Donald Trump say about Frederick Douglass who died in 1895?

Speaking about Black History Month, Trump mentioned Douglass, a former slave and anti-slavery campaigner who died in 1895, but spoke of him in the present tense leading some people to ask if Trump knew anything about Douglass. The president said: “I am very proud now that we have a museum on the National Mall where people can learn about Reverend King, so many other things, Frederick Douglass is an example of somebody who’s done an amazing job and is getting recognized more and more, I notice. Harriet Tubman, Rosa Parks, and millions more black Americans who made America what it is today. Big impact.” Douglass's family later said they too refer to him in the present tense because his "spirit and legacy are still very much alive".
