CovCath grad Sandmann to speak at Republican National Convention

Posted at 9:27 AM, Aug 18, 2020

Former Covington Catholic student Nick Sandmann will be among the speakers at the four-day Republican National Convention next week.

The list of speakers was first reported by Fox News.

Sandmann sued several news media outlets after their coverage falsely painted him as a racist, wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat during an interaction with a Native American activist near the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C. last year.

Sandmann settled a $250 million lawsuit with The Washington Post last month.
