After a meeting with Donald Trump yesterday, Martin Luther King III, said the meeting with the President-Elect was a “constructive meeting” and the overall goal was to work to “bring America together,” according to BlackAmericaWeb.com.
King and Trump’s conversation was primarily to chat about voting rights. “It is very clear that the system is not working at its maximum” when it comes to voter participant, King said in a Washington Post article. “I believe we have to consistently engage with pressure, public pressure. It doesn’t happen automatically, my father [Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.] and his team understood that, did that.”
The meeting comes on the heels of Trump’s Twitter attack on Rep. John Lewis after he stated he would not be attending the inauguration on Friday and that he doesn’t see Trump as a “legitimate president.” Lewis has always been vocal about younger generations to speak out and take action.
