The Trump administration will honor MLK Day with a wreath laying ceremony


In honor of civil rights leader and American icon Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, members of the Trump administration are present at the MLK memorial in downtown D.C. to deliver remarks at a wreath laying ceremony. Among those expected to speak are Department of Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, FBI Director Christopher Wray and King's son, Martin Luther King III.

Members of the administration have also been sharing thoughts about the civil rights leader online.

Ivanka Trump also shared an MLK day message, tweeting a gif that showcased black and white photos of Dr. King, along with the message, "Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was one of the world’s great heroes. Today we honor his profound life and legacy."

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders shared a reflection of her own for MLK day, writing, "Twenty years ago as a student at Central High I watched President Bill Clinton and my dad Mike Huckabee open the doors for the Little Rock Nine - the same doors that had previously been closed to them because they were black. A moment I'll never forget."
