“I Loved His Music” Trump Pays Tribute To Martin Luther King


PRESIDENT Donald Trump has led the tributes to mark the 50th anniversary of the assassination of civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

King, whose public orations and leadership during the fight for civil rights in America in the 1960s marked him out as one of the most commanding, progressive and influential figures in the history of the United States of America, was commended by Trump, who remarked ‘on this day we never forget how cool his music was. Loved that guy’.

Trump went on to list off a number of hit songs by a variety of black artists who came to prominence in the 60s leading many to speculate the normally on-top-of-things president had mistaken King for someone else. Confirmation of this error by the president later came in the form of another tweet in which he spoke fondly of working with King on the set of one episode of the Fresh Prince of Bel Air he had a cameo on in the 90s.

King’s non-violent protests earned him a Nobel Prize for Peace in 1964, with many of his impassioned speeches advocating for the equals rights of African Americans, as well as imploring industries to protect, maintain and enhance the rights of workers.

“To think he played piano despite being blind, he truly was an above average American who one could argue is as great as me in many ways, not all ways, but many,” Trump concluded in an emotional address in front of the press, confounding those who decry his lack of gravitas or wisdom.
