Gregory Cheadle is the black American man whom Trump singled out at the Redding, CA airport rally last June when Trump was telling a story about his experience with a black man who confronted a member of the KKK at a Trump rally. During his speech at the Redding airport Trump was distracted by Cheadle who was deliberatly drawing attention to himself as he stood in front of the crowd. Trump saw Cheadle and said “Look at my African-American”. Cheadle who is black was excited by the recognition and later after Trump finished his speech was able to meet Trump. Trump who made a special effort to meet Cheadle explained that he was talking about jobs for black Americans.
