Donald Trump And Mike Pence Make Unannounced Visit To MLK Memorial

Just hours after President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence got blasted by Rev. Al Sharpton and many people on social media for not paying tribute to late civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., they have finally decided to do so.

Trump shared not one but two tweets about Dr. King this morning. He tweeted,

“Today we celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. for standing up for the self-evident truth Americans hold so dear, that no matter what the color of our skin or the place of our birth, we are all created equal by God. #MLKDay⁠.”

Shortly after, Trump shared another which included a video of him and Pence visiting Martin Luther King’s memorial site in Washington.

“Today, it was my great honor to visit the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial with @VP Mike Pence, in honor of #MLKDay⁠”

Earlier this morning, Sharpton blasted Trump for not having an event scheduled at the White House on the national holiday honoring him.

“This is an insult to the American people that the president of the United States does not officially recognize or give any ceremony for Dr. King,” Sharpton said.

The White House also confirmed that they had nothing planned, but apparently, they did but wanted to honor King without making it a big show.
