MLK III calls out Trump on alleged immigration comments
Washington – Martin Luther King Jr.’s eldest son is calling out President Donald Trump following accusations the president used a vulgarity to describe African countries during a meeting last week and expressed a preference for immigrants from countries like Norway.
Martin Luther King III spoke in Washington on Monday, the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.
King says: “When a president insists that our nation needs more citizens from white states like Norway, I don’t even think we need to spend any time even talking about what it says and what it is.”
He says: “We got to find a way to work on this man’s heart.”
Referring to former Alabama Gov. George Wallace, King added: “George Wallace was a staunch racist and we worked on his heart and ultimately George Wallace transformed.”
