Throughout the course of President Donald Trump’s time in office, Democrats and far-left activists have deemed the commander-in-chief a “racist” on more than one occasion.
However, Trump put that argument to rest after bringing more black voters to the Republican party, teaming up with rapper Kanye West, and putting forth an agenda that has brought black employment through the roof.
And now, the president went the extra mile, signing a bill that marks — and expands — Martin Luther King Jr.’s childhood home into a full-fledged national park.
According to USA Today, the signing happened on Air Force One, where even Alveda King — niece of the civil rights leader — gathered to celebrate the historic move.
“Through his life and work, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. made America more just and free. This important historical park tells his story, and this bill will help ensure that the park continues to tell Dr. King’s story for generations to come,” White House deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley said on the presidential plane.
This was a bill sponsored by Rep. John Lewis, who recently revealed that he has Stage 4 pancreatic cancer.
Alveda King has been a big supporter of Trump over the past few years, saying in a now-viral Twitter post, “I am the Niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Listen to my words… President Trump is not a racist!! He is one of the best presidents America has ever seen! I fully support him!”
I am the Niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Listen to my words…
President Trump is not a racist!!
