Alveda King, MLK’s niece: ‘I voted for Mr. Trump’


“I prefer Donald J. Trump’s platform for our community. He can put America back to work, back to church, back to school!” – Martin Luther King’s Niece – Alveda King.



Alveda King urges Democrats and Republicans to “work together as brothers and sisters” as Trump takes office, Alveda C. King acknowledged she voted for Trump.

Alveda King, is a prominent conservative activist and the niece of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr.,

Her revelation on Monday that “I voted for President-elect Donald Trump.” is going to surely spark fury among haters. King, a former Georgia state representative who now serves as director for Civil Rights for the Unborn and Gospel of Life Ministries, told American Thinker that she’s been praying for Mr. Trump and his adversaries to unite and work together.

“I’m born into a family of preachers,” she told Fox Business Nov. 15. “So I want Mr. Trump to remember that many people who voted for him took a long time praying for him. If he can take some of that divine guidance, that’s going to help him out. We do need unity, and from my perspective as a minister myself, God has not forgotten America.”

King went on to say

“I pray that all polar opposites learn to Agape Love, live and work together as brothers and sisters—or perish as fools,” she told the American Thinker, responding to a question about whether she hopes Trump will be a pro-life president. “While I voted for Mr. Trump, my confidence remains in God, for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Prayers for President-elect Trump, Congressman Lewis, and everyone including leaders.”

King’s mention of Lewis is relevant following his recent statement that he doesn’t see Trump as a “legitimate” president. Her comments Monday come after civil rights icon Rep. John Lewis, who led the 1965 “Bloody Sunday” march in Selma, Alabama, said Mr. Trump would be an “illegitimate president” and vowed to join a boycott of the inauguration. Mr. Trump responded via Twitter, saying the Georgia Democrat is “all talk, talk, talk ― no action.”

Ms. King said Monday on “Fox & Friends” that she admires Mr. Lewis’ “legendary legacy” of civil rights and believes he can help America by working with the president.“ I voted for him, I voted for Mr. Trump,  I understood what he meant when he says let’s roll up our sleeves together, and we can do that,” she said.

Ms Alveda King’s admission that she voted for Trump is no surprise to me.  Last August, she even described Donald Trump as ‘taking a page’ out of her uncle MLK’s book on how to deal with black communities.Following the announcement of Trump’s plans for the black community – which she called ‘promising’ and his comments that Democrats simply expected black votes in the run up to the election, without earning them, Alveda King told Fox: ‘I listened very carefully to everything Mr. Trump has said in the last 72 hours or so and I fully agree with so many of the things that he’s saying.

‘He has taken a page from the book of my daddy, A. D. King, and my uncle Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. looking at the climate, people and really being concerned about what’s happening in every community across America.’ What do you think about Alveda King saying “I voted for Trump” ?
