After yet another weekend of dealing with allegations that he's a racist, Donald Trump kicked off the new week with a tweet in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Not long after his message was posted, critics of the president made sure to fire back.

Trump on MLK

Even before Donald Trump became a politician he had a sketchy history when it came to race relations, most notably his push against the "Central Park Five," four African-American men and one Hispanic man, who were wrongly convicted of the rape of a female jogger in 1989. Since he kicked off his campaign for president, the former host of "The Apprentice" has come under fire on more than one occasions due to controversial remarks and policy proposals that made have labeled racist.

Trump's latest brush with racially charged language came in a report last week that accused the president of referring to El Salvador, Haiti, and countries in Africa as a "sh*thole" during a meeting with members of Congress. As expected, the president has denied the report, labeling it "fake news," despite several lawmakers who were present during the meeting confirming its accuracy. With the latest round of allegations fresh in the minds of many around the country, Trump took to Twitter on January 15 to honor Martin Luther King Jr.

Taking to Twitter on Monday morning, Donald Trump posted a video tribute for Martin Luther King Jr.

Day. "Dr. King's dream is our dream. It is the American Dream," Trump said. "It's the promise stitched into the fabric of our Nation, etched into the hearts of our people, and written into the soul of humankind," he added. "It is the dream of a world where people are judged by who they are, not how they look or where they come from," the president went on to say.
