Since the moment he stepped into politics, the left has done their worst to portray then-candidate, now-President Donald Trump as hateful, bigoted and racist.
The liberal media even went so far as to falsely report that Trump had the bust of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. removed from the White House on Inauguration Day.
But that narrative has totally crumbled in light of what Trump just did to honor the late Dr. King on Monday. The president signed a bill into law that upgraded King’s birthplace from a national historic site to a national historical park, according to The Hill.
“It was my great honor to sign H.R. 267, the ‘Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historical Park Act,’ which redesignates the Martin Luther King, Junior, National Historic Site in the State of Georgia as the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historical Park,” Trump tweeted.The president was joined for the private signing ceremony on board Air Force One by the civil rights leader’s niece, Alveda King, prior to Trump’s appearance at the NCAA National Championship football game in Atlanta, Georgia.
“Through his life and work, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. made America more just and free,” White House deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley told reporters. “This important historical park tells his story, and this bill will help ensure that the park continues to tell Dr. King’s story for generations to come.”
According to USA Today, the national historic site already included King’s birthplace, the church where he was baptized and his burial site. The now-upgraded national park has been expanded to also expanded to include the Prince Hall Masonic Temple, which served as headquarters for King’s Southern Christian Leadership Conference civil rights group.
