The niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. fired back at Dem. Rep. John Lewis after the Georgia representative said that President Donald Trump didn’t care about the Civil Rights movement.
“I think the person we have in Washington today is uncaring,” he said on CNN’s “The Axe Files” Friday. “[Trump] knows very, very little about the struggle and the history of the civil rights movement.”
Dr. Alveda King pushed back against that accusation in an interview with “Fox & Friends” on Sunday as she defended the president.
“The president is certainly fighting for civil rights today” because he is “leading the charge for civil rights today for the little unborn persons in the womb who have a right to live.”
King, who heads the group Civil Rights for the Unborn, said the charges of racism used against the president, who she said is “very brilliant man” and “compassionate,” are unfounded.
“He has surrounded himself with African-American leaders,” she said. “At the African-American museum, for example, he was knowledgeable of much of the history of African-Americans”
She said she continues to held Rep. Lewis, who marched with her uncle, in “great esteem,” and added that “everybody in America needs to do some homework and stop playing the race card.”
