The Rev. Al Sharpton took a moment while delivering his eulogy at the funeral for Aretha Franklin to “correct” a comment made by Donald Trump after the soul icon died on Aug. 16.
Trump reportedly told pool reporters that day: “I want to begin today by expressing my condolences to the family of a person I knew well. She worked for me on numerous occasions.”
