Historian Slams Pence For Comparing Trump To Martin Luther King Jr.

Princeton historian Julian Zelizer slammed Vice President Mike Pence for comparing President Donald Trump to civil rights icon Martin Luther King Jr.

Zelizer told CNN that it was a “perversion” to link King’s legacy to Trump:

The policies of this administration, from the border wall to voting rights restrictions, are antithetical to everything that Martin Luther King fought for. So having Vice President Pence invoke Martin Luther King, for this deal or for anything else, really flies in the face of his memory.
