Martin Luther King Jr’s niece Alveda King destroys the Democrats “President Donald Trump is a racist narrative.”
She pushed back against those who are labeling President Trump as a racist and a white supremacist, arguing there is a danger in misusing the terms.
“I’ve had the experience of going head-to-head with genuine racists. Back in the 20th Century, I was a youth organizer. At the time, my uncle, Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King was killed [in 1968]… I was in a home that was bombed. A racist is a person who really does believe that their race, their category of humanity, is superior or different.”
And, King said, Trump isn’t one of them.
“I’d like to ask anyone who calls him that — have they ever met one?” King said. Trump, she declared, “is not a racist.”
“He’s not a white supremacist,” King said. “President Trump says we all bleed the same. He’s very clear on that. And he has done so much for all Americans, including African Americans… A better economy, [Historically Black Colleges and Universities] get a good shot in the arm, criminal justice reform, his pro-life work. Don’t buy into this racist banter, this race-baiting.”
King said liberals who call Trump racist live in a world full of hypocrisy. “Everyone who’s calling President Trump a racist and white supremacist, most of them support killing in a very brutal way, called abortion,” she said. “They’re using that word ‘moral,’ but they’re doing some of the most immoral deeds that America and humankind can ever see.”
She also stated some Democratic presidential candidates, including former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke (who dropped out of the 2020 race) and former Vice President Joe Biden, routinely targeted their liberal base with claims of racism from the president.
“All of them are saying, ‘Why doesn’t he renounce, denounce white supremacy,’ which he’s done several times,” she said. “They’re not even being honest. The race-baiters who want to stir up fear and hate make us think that we’re different, when we’re one blood and one human race.”
She also soundly rejected Biden’s comparison of Trump to the late segregationist Alabama Gov. George Wallace, who was an avowed racist.
