Martin Luther King Jr.’s daughter, Berenice King, took on to Facebook on Tuesday to share 10 steps of “wise advice” on Challenging Donald Trump.
“Don’t use his name; EVER (45 will do),” King wrote. “Remember this is a regime and he’s not acting alone.”
“Do not argue with those who support him — it doesn’t work,” she added. “Focus on his policies, not his orange-ness and his mental state.”
She went on to tell the people to stay positive and not angry. Anger and fear just fuels their “dark policies.”
“Keep your message positive: they want the country to be angry and fearful because this is the soil from which their darkest policies grow.”
She added that the people should link him up to the Republican party when talking about his actions.
“When you post or talk about him, don’t assign his actions to him, assign them to ‘The Republican Administration,’ or ‘the Republicans,’” she said.
“The Republican legislators will either have to take responsibility for their association with him or stand up for what some of them don’t like,” the King Center CEO added. “[Trump] will not get the focus or attention he craves. Republican representatives will become very concerned about their re-elections.”
Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts recently got kicked out from speaking on the Senate floor after she quoted Martin Luther King Jr.’s wife, Coretta Scott King, to argue Jeff Sessions’ confirmation as attorney general.
Coretta wrote in 1986 that Sessions “had used the awesome power of his office to chill the free exercise of the vote by black citizens” as a U.S. attorney general in Alabama.
