Appearing on Fox News and OANN, Alveda King, niece of MLK Jr has been an ardent defender of President Trump.
On MLK Jr. day Alveda appeared on Fox and Friends.
Good morning, Fox and Friends, thank you for being on it with real news and not fake news. To answer your question, racism is just a word thats being bandied and thrown about and thrown at the President in my opinion unjustly.
President Trump is not a racist. I’ve been with the President recently and when he signed the legislation making the historic site, the Martin Luther King site in Atlanta, Georgia a national park it was introduced by Congressman John Lewis and believe it or not that was one thing the two of them did together. It took two to do it and i’m so glad the President has done it.
But what is so outrageous to call a man a racist who continues to acknowledge the significance of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in a positive way.
If there’s anyone in America who might be considered the top expert on racism, it’s got to be Alveda King, the niece of the late Martin Luther King Jr.
“I’ve had the experience of going head-to-head with genuine racists,” King said on Fox News. “Back in the 20th Century, I was a youth organizer. At the time, my uncle, Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King was killed [in 1968]… I was in a home that was bombed. A racist is a person who really does believe that their race, their category of humanity, is superior or different.”
And, King said, Trump isn’t one of them.
“I’d like to ask anyone who calls him that — have they ever met one?” King said. Trump, she declared, “is not a racist.”
“He’s not a white supremacist,” King said. “President Trump says we all bleed the same. He’s very clear on that. And he has done so much for all Americans, including African Americans… A better economy, [Historically Black Colleges and Universities] get a good shot in the arm, criminal justice reform, his pro-life work. Don’t buy into this racist banter, this race-baiting.”
