Trump Is What Martin Luther King Jr. Was Fighting Against, Says Leonard Pitts Jr.

Jan 15, 2018

On this holiday commemorating Martin Luther King Jr., Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist Leonard Pitts Jr. offers his thoughts on the slain civil rights leader, and critiques President Donald Trump's recent tributes to Dr. King and Rosa Parks. When it comes to the president's recent disputed remarks about certain African countries, Haiti, and El Salvador, and his track record on race, Pitts calls for the media to be "more forthright in calling this what it is" — racism.
