A march from downtown - in the area of Center, Weber and El Dorado streets - to King Plaza (the park across from the Civic Auditorium) is planned for Monday, which is the official MLK Jr. The president used vulgar language to describe Haiti and African nations.

Now, Atlanta's own King family is being dragged into the battle.

When Trump again ignored the question, Ryan repeated it - a fact lost on anyone who followed the event on the live video stream on the White House web site, since it abruptly cut out at that point, though C-SPAN continued to broadcast the event.

Local NAACP officials said they support canceling the parade because Abbott's participation would have forced them to protest an event meant to honor King.

"The more we pull out different stories that he has experienced and different stories he has written about", said Kim Jones.

After the signing ceremony, Farris told CNN the president addressed the comments with him. "I think that President Trump is racially uninformed or racially ignorant".

"Contrast that with President Trump asking why we can't have more immigrants from places like Norway", Lemon closed.

King's daughter, the Rev. Bernice King, will be the keynote speaker at the commemorative service honoring her father at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta. Youngblood said Ramsdail is an alumnus of Beloit College and Beloit Memorial High School and has been a longtime supporter of the college and the Office of Inclusive Living and Learning. Determined to spend King's birthday at a service in Chicago, he was not in Springfield for a crucial vote at which opportunistic Republicans took advantage of his absence to grab minority control of the Senate presidency.

He later added, "I thought he misspoke, and, as I said, I think President Trump is not a racist, but I do think he is racially uninformed". "(King) was one of those people who, if he met 10 people in two minutes, he would remember everyone's name and everything about them", Mennes said.

"For many years, I worked with my congressional colleagues and the National Park Service to preserve these Atlanta landmarks and to enhance visitor experiences and services", Lewis said.
