On Monday, Kellyanne Conway held a brief press gathering outside of the White House. One reporter asked her how Donald Trump was observing Martin Luther King Day. Conway answered the question by claiming that the iconic civil rights leader would be opposed to Trump’s impeachment.
Conway went on to note that Trump was focused on preparing for his trip to Davos but added that he “agrees with many of the things that Dr. Martin Luther King stood for.”
She then stated that she believed that Dr. King and Trump would see eye-to-eye on “unity and equality.” Conway then added that it was not Trump who was “trying to tear the country apart through an impeachment process and a lack of substance that really is very shameful at this point.”
“I’ve held my opinion on it for a very long time, but when you see the articles of impeachment that came out, I don’t think it was Dr. King’s vision to have Americans dragged through a process where the president is not going to be removed from office, is not being charged bribery, extortion, high crimes and misdemeanors.”
“I, this morning, was reading some of the lesser-known passages by Dr. King and I appreciate the fact that we as a nation respect him by giving him his own day. I’m happy to share a birthday with this day,” Conway concluded.
