Trump, Pence Address MLK Day With Comments; Sharpton Angry No Event At WH

In an attempt for some relevance, Al Sharpton is complaining Pres. Trump is not holding an event at the White House for Martin Luther King Jr Day.

It’s pretty obvious Rev. Martin Luther King Jr would have had problems with what Al Sharpton and the Democrat party stands for today.

The rabble-rousing race-baiting activist said: “There is no official event at the White House to celebrate Martin Luther King Day, 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 hasn’t responded to Pres. Trump making an unannounced visit to the MLK Jr Memorial on the National Mall after his initial statement. Trump probably didn’t announce it because it would have been a big dog and pony PR show, but that didn’t stop Sharpton.

Pres. Trump also addressed the day via his Twitter account:

“His extraordinary message that momentous day in August of 1963 stirred to action Americans of every race and creed, and it continues to reverberate in the hearts and minds of patriotic citizens across our great land. Today, as we pause to mark the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., we recommit ourselves to the advancement of equality and justice for all Americans, and to the full realization of his worthy dream.”

Even Vice Pres. Mike Pence addressed the MLK holiday with this response:

“You think of how [Martin Luther King Jr.] changed America. He inspired us to change through the legislative process to become a more perfect union. That’s exactly what President Trump is calling on Congress to do: Come to the table in the spirit of good faith. We’ll secure our border and we’ll reopen the government. And we’ll move our nation forward as the president said yesterday to even a broader discussion about immigration reform in the months ahead.”
