(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 “Fox & Friends” that such characterizations could not be further from the truth. “President Trump is not a racist,” she said Thursday.
“I’ve had the experience of going head to head with genuine racists,” she said.
As for those who say otherwise, King said she’d like to ask them if they’ve “ever met a real racist.”
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.
“President Trump has said, ‘We all bleed the same,’ he’s very clear on that, and he has done so much for all Americans, including African-Americans,” King said.
She noted that instead of name-calling, politicians on both sides of the political aisle should “look for solutions” together.

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