Kirsters Baish| President Donald Trump just signed a measure which was intended to create a new national historic park dedicated to Martin Luther King, Jr. The mainstream media most likely won’t be doing too much reporting on this story, however, as they would rather keep liberals in the dark when it comes to all the good that Trump is doing for the African American community.
CNN did report briefly on the matter saying that President Trump signed the measure on Monday which created a new national historic park for Martin Luther King Jr. It all went down during Trump’s trip to the College Football National Championship in Atlanta, Georgia.
President Trump signed the documents while aboard Air Force One alongside Alveda King, Martin Luther King Jr.’s niece.
This law resulted in the first national historic park in the entire state of Georgia. The law was sponsored by Democratic Representative John Lewis. Lewis has been very vocal about his views on Trump’s policies and recently boycotted the opening of the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum because President Trump was speaking at the event.
USA Today reported that our country will be celebrating Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday, so this new law is very fitting. They went on to explain that Trump signed the bill on Monday which was called the African American Civil Rights Network Act of 2017. This act requires that the National Park Service link multiple historical sites which are related to the Civil Rights movement.
President Trump also signed the 400 Years of African-American History Commission Act. This act commemorates the arrival of the first Africans within the English colonies at Point Comfort, Virginia, back in 1969.
Alveda King thanked President Trump.
CBN News reported that Dr. Alveda King explained to their reporters, “I was there on Air Force One, and I was there when the president signed the bill in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr., my uncle, making that historic site here in Atlanta, Georgia, where I live, a national park.”
King explained to CBN News that President Trump having signed the bill proves that Trump is definitely not a racist. This ridiculous narrative has been making its rounds for the last couple of years, especially after his response to the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia. Many people felt that Trump didn’t condemn the bigotry and hatred enough.
King went on to say, “And so that (the signing of the bill) was not a racist act, and somebody says, ‘Well, he had to sign it.’ Well, he didn’t. Presidents veto bills all the time. President Trump was happy to sign that bill. And so many times, President Donald John Trump has expressed admiration for Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.”
She wasn’t finished there. She felt that she had to make it clear that she believes that Trump is a good President for our country, and he truly has the best interests of our citizens (of all races) at heart.
She continued, “I believe that President Donald John Trump is working very hard to make America great again. And he continues to demonstrate that he wants to do that for all Americans, so the question of racism just doesn’t fit that profile to me.”
She explained that Trump is doing what he can for every single American, despite “skin color and socioeconomic conditions.”
“So do I believe that President Donald John Trump is a racist? No, I do not,” she reiterated. “And I celebrate 2018 and believing that Americans will come together and lead the world as an example as one nation under God.”
