AURN White House correspondent April Ryan confronted President Donald Trump over the exonerated Central Park Five, but Trump refused to apologize for his past demands that they be executed, claiming that "They admitted their guilt".
"Why do you bring that question up now?"
Trump in 1989 bought full page ads in New York City newspapers calling for the reinstatement of the death penalty in New York following the arrest of the five then-teens ― four of whom were black and one Hispanic ― in connection with the rape of a white jogger in Central Park.
The Central Park Five were five young men of color - Antron McCray, Kevin Richardson, Yusef Salaam, Raymond Santana, and Korey Wise - who were wrongfully convicted of the brutal beating and rape of a female jogger in New York City in 1989.
Though they all confessed after long police interrogations, they each later recanted their statements, saying they had been exhausted and coerced by police officers.

Trump responded, "You have people on both sides of that".
New York City reached a roughly $41-million United States settlement with the five without admitting wrongdoing. "They admitted their guilt", Trump told Ryan.
"I want to hate these murderers and I always will", Trump wrote in the May 1989 ad. His call to bring back the death penalty didn't include minors, he explained, but they should be absolved of punishment, either.
Ava DuVernay's new miniseries for Netflix dramatizing the events of the case has brought renewed attention to individuals involved in the prosecution who have largely evaded the spotlight.
The five boys were elsewhere in the park at the time, an investigation by the District Attorney's Office found in 2002.
