On April 4 this year, we will remember and think about King's assassination 50 years ago, a sad day I'll never forget.

"So these are the things that we have to instill in them so that they can have dreams like Dr. King and so many others".

And taking to Twitter, King's daughter, Bernice King also weighed in. Trump said, according to a report from the Washington Post, referring to Haiti, El Salvador and countries in Africa. That act of being helpful to someone may prompt an ongoing connection to the person and build more familiarity.
