Only days after he called out civil rights icon John Lewis on Twitter, Donald Trump has shocked the world once more by sitting down with Martin Luther King Jr.’s son at Trump Tower, where the two participated in a prayer and discussion. Just days before, Trump went off on Lewis, who said that Trump’s election was “not legitimate”.
According to the Washington Post, the meeting between Trump and Martin Luther King III started with a prayer which focused on the healing of the nation.
When asked if he had been offended by Trump’s tweets about Lewis, Martin Luther King III stated: “In the head of emotion, a lot of things get said on both sides. And I think that at some point, I am, as John Lewis and many others are, a bridge builder. The goal is to bring America together. We are a great nation, and we must become a greater nation.”
