The Mainstream Media likes to paint our President as a racist, but that narrative just doesn’t fit his actual actions.
Our President, joined by Vice President Mike Pence, went to the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial today to lay a wreath at its foundation.
You can watch it here (and then please scroll down to honor King in remembering his most famous speech):
The USA Today had more on the event:
As the government shutdown passed its 31st day, President Donald Trump marked Monday's federal holiday with a wreath-laying at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial.
After he and Vice President Mike Pence stood for a moment of silence, Trump told reporters: "Good morning, everybody. Great day. Beautiful day. Thank you for being here. Appreciate it."
The visit lasted less than two minutes on a very cold day.
Trump said nothing about the partial government shutdown, two days after making a proposal that Democrats rejected as inadequate.
Unveiled during a nationally televised speech Saturday, Trump's plan included an offer of three years of legal status for certain migrants in exchange for funding of his proposed wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.
Democrats rejected the idea, in part because the proposal did not address a path to citizenship for migrants who include "Dreamers," people brought into country illegally as children by their parents.
Trump criticized the other party in a morning tweet: "Democrats campaigned on working within Washington and 'getting things done!' How is that working out?"
Please take the five minutes to honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on this federal holiday and watch his most famous speech.
