Commentator Al Sharpton attacked President Donald Trump on MSNBC Wednesday morning, claiming that he has “reintroduced” the things that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. stood against.


“Many of the things Dr. King stood for are under attack 50 years later,” the reverend claimed.

“I think what people really don’t understand,” he also said, “those of us who grew up in the King movement and the generation after King, is that we mark the 50th anniversary with the challenges that we have a president that has made this kind of racial divide and intolerance become vogue again.” (RELATED: MSNBC’s Al Sharpton Calls Trump ‘Very Insecure Man,’ ‘Losing As President’ [VIDEO])

“When you look at what Donald Trump is doing around questions of people of color, Mexicans, blacks, Muslims, he has re-introduced what Dr. King’s life was against.” (RELATED: Al Sharpton Says Weed Is The Next ‘Civil Rights Cause’)
