Sharpton believe Trump had anything planned. He says he knows Trump didn’t plan anything because there was nothing on his schedule. Which is odd because MLK Day isn’t a Black people holiday, it’s a Federal Holiday.
Trump didn’t make any gesture until Reverend Sharpton says he and some other people applied pressure. Trump then acknowledged MLK Day, somewhat. He spent a total of about 90 seconds at the King Memorial, laid a wreath and went back to the White House.
