Fox News contributor and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Dr. Alveda King pushed back against those who are labeling President Trump as a racist and a white supremacist, arguing there is a danger in misusing the terms.

Appearing on “Fox & Friends” Thursday, King responded to many of the 2020 Democratic candidates who have been quick to call the president a “racist” and accuse him of inciting violence with his rhetoric.

Alveda King has supported Donald Trump since the time he ran for president.

“President Trump is not a racist,” King said. “I’ve had the experience of going head to head with genuine racists.”

King said she would like to challenge the president’s accusers on whether they have “ever met a real racist.”

“President Trump has said ‘we all bleed the same,’ he’s very clear on that and he has done so much for all Americans including African-Americans,” she explained.

Many 2020 Democratic candidates have upped their rhetoric on the president following the horrific mass shootings that took 31 lives this past weekend.

In an interview with MSNBC, Beto O’Rourke called Trump a white supremacist on Wednesday as both men were in El Paso to honor the victims and visit those injured in the attack.

After noting he had previously called Trump a racist, the host asked O’Rourke if he believed the president was a white supremacist.

“He is. He has made that very clear,” O’Rourke answered. “He dehumanized those who do not look and pray like the majority of people here. He said I wish we had more immigrants from Nordic countries because those from Haiti bring AIDS, those from Africa are s—hole nations.”

King called on people on both sides to come together to “look for solutions.”

“What President Trump and First Lady Melania did was to go down and look for solutions. We have to overcome evil with good. When people call each other racist, we are one blood. One human race, different ethnicities –we’re not color blind, we can see, but that is for the purpose of appreciating each other and we have to do that,” said King.

Responding to Oprah Winfrey’s remark that the country must “return to our core moral center,” King said she found the left’s calls for morals hypocritical.

“A lot of those calling Trump a racist and white supremacist, most of them support killing in a very brutal way called abortion. The youngest, the weakest the most beautiful of us killing them in the womb. How immoral is that,” she concluded.
