Alveda King Blasts 2020 Dems, ‘Race-Baiters,’ Proclaims Trump is ‘Not a Racist’

Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s niece Dr. Alveda King blasted the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates and “race baiters” for accusing President Donald Trump of being a racist after the two deadly mass shootings over the weekend.

During a “Fox and Friends” interview on Thursday morning, King was asked for her response to the “rhetoric” she has heard nowadays from the people attacking the president as a racist, such as former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) agreeing that Trump is a “white supremacist” during a recent interview.

King said that the president “is not a racist” and recounted her “experience going head-to-head with genuine racists” while working as a “youth organizer” when her uncle was assassinated.

She continued on to say that a “racist is a person” who fully believes that their race is above others, before slamming O’Rourke, former Vice President Joe Biden (D), and the other Democrats running for the party’s presidential nomination for being dishonest about the president’s denouncing of white supremacy.

As IJR Red previously reported, the president called on Americans to condemn “racism, bigotry and white supremacy” and proclaimed that “these sinister ideologies must be defeated” in his address to the nation on Monday following the shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio.

Trump also said that he stood against “any group of hate” while speaking to a gaggle of reporters in the White House driveway earlier this week.

“A racist is a person who truly does believe that their race, their category of humanity, is superior or different,” King said. “And Beto, Biden, and all of them are saying ‘why doesn’t he renounce or denounce white supremacy?’ which he’s done several times. They’re not even being honest, saying he hasn’t.”

Watch the video here:

Biden had accused the president of having “fanned the flames of white supremacy” in America “in both clear language and in code” during a speech in Iowa on Wednesday, as IJR News noted.

King went on to say that that the “thing” that is “really getting to [her]” is the “race-baiters” who want to cause controversy and “make us think we’re different when we’re all one blood, one human race.”

“President Trump says we all bleed the same, he’s very clear on that, and he has done so much for all Americans, including African-Americans,” continued King.

The civil rights legend’s niece also said in the interview that the president is “not a racist” or a “white supremacist” and asked those decrying him as such ever “met” a white supremacist.

“President Trump is not a racist, he’s not a white supremacist,” said King. “I’d like to ask anyone who calls him that, have they ever met one?”

This is the man that wouldn’t rent to anyone but whites. He ordered his managers to mark applications with big C. They were told no apartment was available but then 30 minutes later a white person would get an apartment. He took out a whole page ad calling for the execution of young black men and even after they were proven innocent, he still said they were guilty. He doesn’t want a black person handling his money because “all blacks are lazy. They just can’t help themselves. It’s in their genes”. He points to a person at his rally and… Read more »

God bless you Ms King.
These liberals really know he’s not a racist, they are race baiting and trying to cause division because it suits their agenda to do so. They re looking at the man in the mirror. And they are proud of themselves, because evil is self.

As Alveda King has said, can you truly spot a true racist in this day and age, because the word racist has no meaning anymore the way the demoncrats throw it around! We all are individuals and we all have individual beliefs, we are not sheep or lemmings!!!

I am so glad that Alveda King was courageous to say Trump is not a racist nor a white supremacist She fully understands the hate that is show towards Trump every day. She spoke about what it was like to see her relatives shot and her place bombed. She speaks the truth clearly and unashamedly because she know what it is like to be hated. A most wonderful woman. I have never met her but she knows the Lord I know so we are sisters in Christ Jesus and I like that. Thank you Alveda for standing up for truth… Read more »
