Donald Trump couldn’t help himself on Monday and made Martin Luther King Day all about himself.
Trump took to Twitter on Monday to celebrate his own inauguration while comparing himself to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. He tweeted saying:
“It was exactly three years ago today, January 20, 2017, that I was sworn into office. So appropriate that today is also MLK jr DAY. African-American Unemployment is the LOWEST in the history of our Country, by far. Also, best Poverty, Youth, and Employment numbers, ever. Great!”

Trump falsely accused President Barack Obama of being born in Kenya and even asked for his long form birth certificate many times. Trump also falsely accused the Central Park 5 of rape and paid the New York Times to publicly call for their brutal executions. Shameful.
