This week starts and ends with two big days, with Monday being Martin Luther King Day and Friday being Donald Trump’s inauguration. With As much as Trump has been accused as being racist, it’s a bit ironic that the two days share the same week. Now, they just collided with what King’s niece just came out and said that pissed a bunch of people off.
Donald Trump has been in the public eye for decades, yet hadn’t been branded a racist until he ran for President – as a Republican. Had he run as a Democrat, how much do you want to bet he’d face such charges? Hopefully you wouldn’t wager too much — because it’s pretty obvious that he wouldn’t.
Even today’s so-called civil rights leaders like Jesse Jackson were singing Trump’s praise years ago. Back in 1999 Jesse Jackson praised Donald Trump for being someone who pushed for diversity and inclusivity. “I do want to thank you, Donald Trump, for being with us tonight,” Jackson said in the speech. “We need your building skills, your gusto for people on Wall Street to represent diversity.” Jackson went on to state that Trump’s success is “beyond argument,” although, he noted, “one can miss his seriousness and his commitment.”
Maybe he thought the (R) next to his name stood for “racist.”
Martin Luther King day this week revealed that at least one member of the King family cast their vote for The Donald back in November, which liberals aren’t too happy about since it disproves their ridiculous claims about this winning candidate.
According to Western Journalism:
Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga., a hero of the civil rights movement, said last week he believes Trump is not “a legitimate president” because of alleged Russian interference in the election.
Alveda C. King, a niece of Dr. King’s, is taking a more conciliatory view.
She told the American Thinker that she voted for Trump.
“I pray that all polar opposites learn to Agape Love, live and work together as brothers and sisters — or perish as fools,” she said. “While I voted for Mr. Trump, my confidence remains in God, for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Prayers for President-elect Trump, Congressman Lewis, and everyone including leaders.”
King also discussed Lewis’ remarks in an appearance Monday on Fox News’ Fox and Friends.
“Well I actually admire Congressman Lewis’ legendary legacy of civil rights and working with my uncle, ML, in the civil rights movement of the 20th century, and so I believe he should stay on that track, nonviolent conflict resolution,” she said. “I believe that Congressman Lewis can actually help America by working with the president so that nonviolent conflict resolution — one blood of the Bible, Jesus Christ encouraging us to be brothers and sisters and not adversarial — Congressman Lewis should be one of the best teachers of that.”
She went on to say, “If anybody in America is fearful and tearful, pray together. Let’s just pray. That’s what my uncle would do today.”
Martin Luther King III also met with Trump at Trump Tower yesterday. Reporters tried unsuccessfully to get him to criticize Trump following his meeting.
