Alveda King Gives Trump An ‘A’ On Race Relations In His First 100 Days (Video)

During the 2016 campaign, President Donald Trump spoke to the African American community, promising he would make huge strides on race relations in the United States as commander-in-chief.

Dr. Alveda King, the niece of Martin Luther King Jr., said on “Fox & Friends Weekend” he’s been doing a great job so far, Fox News reports.

“President Trump gets an ‘A’ from me,” King said, explaining that she has met with Trump and several members of his team – including Dr. Ben Carson and Omarosa Manigault – to discuss the plight of African Americans in America.

She said that several important initiatives are on the president’s radar, including making sure historically black colleges and institutions are well-funded.

“He knows that we have to have good education and opportunities to compete,” King said. “He’s doing that with not just the African Americans and women, but, really, for all Americans.”

Abby Huntsman pointed out that the last few months of former President Obama’s time in office were marked by racial protests and unrest, asking what has changed since then.

King chalked it up to two key things: “Prayer coupled with sanity.”

She revealed that she prayed for Trump on each of his first 100 days in office, and she will continue to do so as he forges ahead in his presidency.
