Today, President Donald J. Trump will sign the official proclamation making this Monday, January 15, the “Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Federal Holiday.” This year marks the first time in more than a decade that the federal holiday falls on King’s actual birthday.

Here is an advance look at what the President will tell Americans today:
  • Reverend King preached love throughout his life—love for each other, for our fellow Americans, and for humanity. That is what drove his work.
  • We celebrate King first and foremost for standing up for the self-evident truth Americans hold so dear: No matter the color of our skin, or the place of our birth, we are ALL created equal by God.
This April will mark half a century since King was cruelly taken from us by an assassin’s bullet. As we mourn his loss, we also pledge to fight for his dream of equality, freedom, justice, and peace.

The White House Published on Jan 12, 2018:
President Trump Signs a Proclamation to Honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day making this Monday, January 15, the “Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Federal Holiday.”

This is President Trump's full speech.

The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.'s niece ripped accusations that President Trump is a "racist" for speaking in an off-color manner about third world countries.

Illinois Democratic Sen. Richard Durbin claimed Trump referred to Haiti and the African continent as a "s**thole," prompting critics to label the president a racist.

Dr. Alveda King said Saturday on "Fox & Friends" such claims about Trump are "outrageous."
