Donald Trump on Monday met with Martin Luther King Jr.'s son at the Trump Tower in New York.

"When we work together there is nothing that we as Americans can't do," Martin Luther King Jr. III told reporters following the meeting.

When asked what his father would be most concerned about today, he said the "50  to 60 million people living in poverty." He added: "It's insanity that we have poor people in this nation."

Trump kicked off MLK Day with a tweet about "the many wonderful things that he stood for."
