Martin Luther King Jr Donald Trump

President-elect Donald Trump will honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. during a planned meeting with Dr. King's eldest son, Martin Luther King III.

Trump's camp announced the planned meeting at Trump Tower on Monday, while most of the nation observes Martin Luther King Day. The PEOTUS also remembered Dr. King in a tweet on Monday.

"Celebrate Martin Luther King Day and all of the many wonderful things that he stood for. Honor him for being the great man that he was!" he tweeted.

Sean Spicer, Mr. Trump's press secretary and communications director, confirmed the meeting with MLK's son and other civil rights leaders after plans to visit the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C. were cancelled.

    trump to meet with King’s eldest son to DEFLECT from the shyt storm he created and to avoid further criticism that his orange azz is facing, seems more like it!

    Good some folks really wanted to be there and it would have been a shame if he messed there time up.

    He needs to go when he will not disrupt regular folks from visiting. ...It's around the corner from the "White" House he will occupy

    Back in the day (before YT), I couldn't wait for MLK bday, just to hear this song....especially Whitney's part. It gave me all kinds of life.

  • That’s Interesting

    Donald Trump would not have been fit to wash Dr. King's draws.

    Trump's tweets about Rep. John Lewis show what he really feels about MLK: "All talk, talk, talk - no action or results. Sad!"

    So he is meeting to discuss voting............Dude, you aren't even respecting that the VOTES did NOT elect you....so how is that a priority.
    Oh yeah, because "My vote doesn't count" was a line touted by so many blacks so that MUST be the biggest concern.

    No, how about you meet to discuss police brutality, he can discuss that, as his father, etc endured it!!!

    FOH

    lol Why is he sweating us so hard?! I'll be so happy when he moves onto the next 'minority community'? nobody's buying it outside of Sandra and the other few alt-blites. Maybe he can't find Mexican Americans to do this with? Even Pitbull, a republican, a white guy when it's convenient 'boricua' otherwise? He'd never betray "his people" like that. George Lopez, fat Joe who loves to use the word ni**a, but spoke out against Kaepernick. Only when it's convenienters. None of those guys/gals. None of those guys would buckle. None of them. We make it so easy for the opposition. I guess that's why he? I just answered my own question? Happy MLK day y'all?

    Someone talked him into meeting with his son. He still should have visited the museum as scheduled. Its funny how he can get talked into meeting with his son...somewhere else and not at the museum with THE PEOPLE. NOPE, not excusing it. And maybe anything he do will never anything that will be good enough....but as I said before he is our soon to be PEE-OTUS and we cannot be divided.

    It's a documentary correct? I've seen it & it's pretty good & eye opening.

    The medicinal term is foreskin cheddar I believe? Secretions produced by the foreskin. Duck butter gives it an elegant, French type of pizazz. I've never had it personally, but all the women who've consumed mine swear by it? Even exes of long ago will drop by from time to time for that DB? Consumption promotes healthy hair, skin, and nails. Also aliveates menstural cramps, allegedly.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Trump appointed a man that Coretta was so opposed to that she wrote a 10+page testimony against, due this racist standing. This person was deemed to racist to be a judge and Mrs. King letter assisted in the decision............so again I ask, why would Martin III allow himself to be used for a "clean up". Voting ISN'T the black man's GREATEST issue and concern...........why not talk about the real problems with Martin III?

    It is sad that MLK3 allowed himself to be used in this public relations ploy. Dr. King is probably spinning in his grave as his namesake takes this walk of shame.

  • KarmaBackAround

    OAN...did yall hear Steve Harvey going OFF on his morning show this morning.. he has shamed the black americans who are upset with him over his meeting...but he did say something I agree with. .instead of everyone getting on a social media platform complaining, u have to get in the face of the oppressor (Donald Trump) and come to some kind of terms and utter hopefulness for our community..

  • Low E. TUH!

    IT PAINED ME TO DO THAT...CAPRICORNS ARE COLD AF. I'M A FIRE SIGN...AND YOUR FONT REMINDS ME OF MY MAMA. BUT! I WAS LIKE, "I CAN BE NICE ON TUH-DAY!"

    Had he gone to the Museum today instead of a welcome he would have felt the full furor of African American animosity. The jedi mind trick is MLK3 walking out of Trump Tower spouting the shit they programmed him to say instead of what is MOST important this day.

    He should feel welcomed if he know MLK message.
    He is the Prez Elect. He would have been welcomed. Protesters will ce know matter where this man go
    Is he going to hide every time he feel intimidated by a few. He just doesnt care about going..,

  • http://realitytea.com/ Lady Chatterley’s Lover

    He does not get that in order to be welcomed, you must be welcoming. In the end he will be sworn (until he is impeached in a few months) so someone needs to muzzle him to turn down the rhetoric. It weakens him and it weakens the country.

    You didn't have to say anything since it pained you so much. I have never liked fire signs anyway.

    But did he sell out, or is he really doing it for the "hood" so to say.. he seemed sincere and he also said he didn't plan or was the one to initiate the meeting

  • TheMisses

    Sooooo....I'm supposed to be thrilled that he spoke to this man?! What exactly has he done? All I know about him is that he's got his daddy's name. This still doesn't change the fact that trump is an illegitimate president! He's illegitimate because of russia! Point! Blank! Period!

  • TheMisses

    You mean, thank you illegitimate president trump. I don't care that Hillary didn't win. What I care about is the Russian interference in our election. It was neither free nor fair.

    You can thank () bama for that one.

  • barbeez

    These idiots actually think some emails allegedly leaked by Russia influenced the election. How about the fact that Hillary the career criminal was a flawed candidate.

  • Prettybrowneyes

    He didnt write it. All words were spelled correctly on this one lol

  • barbeez

    Yeah. I've seen it. I'm sorry but light is usually seen as better to black and whites. They're hardships are nothing like that a dark skin sister suffers.

    On Valentine's day, you give flowers. On St. Patrick's day you wear green. And I guess on MLK's holiday, you meet with his son and "other CR activists"....whoever they are. The fact that he's waited to talk to ANYBODY about civil rights on the day that corresponds with the subject would let the dumbest person know that this is not a sincere gesture. This is not impressive at all and his weak attempt to pay homage to MLK ...in a tweet...is full of empty words.
    What the he{{ did they talk about anyway....a fruitless conversation that could have waited another 3 whole millennia to take place - and the world would have never known the difference.

    I'm late to the meeting, but Happy Founder's Day!

  • Wayup!

    But MLK himself would have met with Trump too..He would say the same thing Steve Harvey saying and we would have believed him over Steve?
