(NationalSentinel) The niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. has come to the defense of President Donald Trump amid cries from Democrats and Leftist commentators that he is a racist.
Alveda King, a Fox News contributor, told â€œFox & Friendsâ€ that such characterizations could not be further from the truth. â€œPresident Trump is not a racist,â€ she said Thursday.
â€œIâ€™ve had the experience of going head to head with genuine racists,â€ she said.
As for those who say otherwise, King said sheâ€™d like to ask them if theyâ€™ve â€œever met aÂ real racist.â€
King’s comments come as a number of 2020 Democratic presidential contenders have accused the president of racist, bigoted comments in recent weeks following his criticism of Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) “rat-infested” Baltimore district. Because Cummings is black, Democrats deemed the president’s comments ‘racist.’
Ms. King disagrees.
â€œPresident Trump has said, â€˜We all bleed the same,â€™ heâ€™s very clear on that, and he has done so much for all Americans, including African-Americans,â€ King said.
She noted that instead of name-calling, politicians on both sides of the political aisle should â€œlook for solutionsâ€ together.
I am the Niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Listen to my words…
President Trump is not a racist!!

â€œWhat President Trump and first lady Melania did was to go down and look for solutions,â€ she said, in reference to the Trumpsâ€™ visits to El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, following mass shootings in those cities over the weekend. â€œWe have to overcome evil with good.â€
â€œWhen people call each other racist, we are one blood,â€ she said. â€œOne human race, different ethnicities â€” weâ€™re not color blind, we can see, but that is for the purpose of appreciating each other, and we have to do that.â€
She also accused Democrats of “hypocrisy” over their support for abortion while calling the president a racist.
â€œA lot of those calling Trump a racist and white supremacist, most of them support killing in a very brutal way called abortion,â€ she said.
â€œThe youngest, the weakest the most beautiful of us killing them in the womb. How immoral is that?â€
