A prominent family member of the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is defending President Donald Trump from attacks by Congressman John Lewis (D-GA.)
“We have come a distance. We made progress. But there are forces in America trying to slow us down or take us back,” Lewis said Friday on low-rated CNN. “I think the person we have in Washington today is uncaring,” Lewis said, adding that he believes Trump “knows very, very little about the history and the struggle of the Civil Rights Movement.”
That drew a sharp response from Dr. Alveda King, pro-life civil activist and niece of Martin Luther King.
King says Trump is “leading the charge for civil rights today for the little unborn persons in the womb who have a right to live.”
“He has surrounded himself with African-American leaders,” King said. “At the African-American museum, for example, he was knowledgeable of much of the history of African-Americans.”
Lewis also believes the 2016 election was rigged with secret computers, and that Trump is not really the President.
“I truly believe to this day that this election was rigged in his favor,” Lewis told low-rated CNN.
