On Race Nothing Trump Does Will Ever Satisfy His Enemies

Trump at MLK memorial

Monday, President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence made a visit to the Rev. Martin Luther King Memorial in Washington to mark the national holiday in his honor.

The temperature Monday was 19 degrees with a wind chill of two degrees. After laying a wreath at the memorial to Dr. King, around midmorning Monday, the President tweeted a link to a proclamation he signed last week declaring Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

“Today we celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. for standing up for the self-evident truth Americans hold so dear, that no matter what the color of our skin or the place of our birth, we are all created equal by God,” the president tweeted.

However, these marks of respect were greeted with anything but welcome by the liberal media.

The Daily Beast complained that, “President Trump has no public events scheduled Monday to mark Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Three days ago, he signed a proclamation for the federal holiday in which he encouraged “all Americans to recommit themselves to Dr. King’s dream by engaging in acts of service to others, to their community, and to our Nation.” It’s not clear if Trump plans to do so himself; the public schedule issued by the White House does not necessarily include all events. Last year on MLK Day, Trump went golfing in West Palm Beach, Florida.”

Reuters White House Correspondent Jeff Mason tweeted:

[email protected] and @VP lay a wreath at the #MLKJr memorial. After saying good morning, he left.  Total trip time: about a minute or two.

While Maggie Jordan, Field Producer in D.C. for News Night on ACN, complained via Twitter:

Per the pool reporter, here’s what Trump said during a visit of “approximately two minutes” to the MLK memorial in Washington: “Good morning, everybody. Great day. Beautiful day. Thank you for being here. Appreciate it."

The Huffington Post centered its coverage on drawing unfavorable comparisons between Trump’s MLK Day schedule and that of his predecessors, “Trump’s quick trip to the memorial on Monday offered a stark contrast with past presidents, such as Barack Obama and George W. Bush, who spent MLK Day volunteering or visiting memorials in the civil rights icon’s honor during their presidencies,” wrote Hayley Miller.

And Politico’s Louis Nelson noted in his coverage that, “The president had faced some criticism for his previously released schedule, which did not include any public events marking Martin Luther King Jr. day.”

During remarks at the 49th annual Martin Luther King, Jr. memorial breakfast in Boston, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren took the opportunity to trash the President, saying:

As we speak, our government is shut down for one reason: So that the president of the United States can fund a monument to hate and division along our southern border… This is the old divide-and-conquer strategy. The goal is to turn hardworking people against other hardworking people. The intent is to promote fear and hatred.

In New York, Rev. Al Sharpton (of all people) complained to a crowd including former Vice President Joe Biden and former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, “Today as we have this breakfast, 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.”

Biden also slammed Trump at the event, pointing to the president's remarks that there were “very fine people on both sides” after a woman was killed while protesting a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2017.

“No president since the Civil War had ever, ever uttered words like that,” Biden claimed.

But that treatment pales in comparison to what Democrat politicians said, with Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders leading the pack by saying at a Martin Luther King memorial event, "It gives me no pleasure to tell you that we now have a President of the United States who is a racist."

The poison in our politics can’t really get much lower than Bernie Sanders’ slander of Donald Trump, and as for President Trump being a racist, we will take the word of African-American NFL great Herschel Walker over Sanders any day:

He is a great man and it’s sad to see people that do not know him say the awful things they’ve said about him, that he’s racist. I’m here to tell you Donald Trump is not a racist.

I’ve spent a lot of time with him, you know, I’ve been with his kids when no one else has been around and he is a very, very good man and I feel that if they give him an opportunity where he is not having to fight against everyone in Washington … he could do some amazing things.
