MLK III blasts Pence for comparing his father to Trump

Martin Luther King III spent part of the national holiday dedicated to honoring his father reprimanding Vice President Mike Pence for comparing the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to President Donald Trump.

His comments came the day after Pence claimed the president is following in King’s footsteps by calling on Congress to “come to the table in a spirit of good faith.”

“The vice president attempted to compare the president to Martin Luther King Jr.,” his son said on Monday. “Martin Luther King Jr. was a bridge builder, not a wall builder.”

Offering a variation of Trump’s campaign slogan, King III said his father “would say ‘Love, not hate, will make America great.'”
