Rev. Bernice King Slams Trump on Martin Luther King Jr. Day

HeadlineJan 16, 2018
H 22

And communities and congregations across the country marked Martin Luther King Day on Monday. Many pastors and civil rights leaders denounced President Trump on Monday, including Martin Luther King Jr.’s daughter, Rev. Bernice King.

Rev. Bernice King: “Our collective voice in this hour must always be louder than the voice of one who may speak sometimes representing these United States, whose words sometimes do not reflect that legacy of my father. We cannot allow the nations of the world to embrace the words that come from our president as a reflection of the true spirit of America.”

That was Martin Luther King Jr.’s youngest child, Rev. Bernice King, speaking at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta on Monday.
