President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence made a surprise trip Monday to the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial.
The president traveled via his motorcade to the monument in Washington, DC, and laid a wreath on the monument as both leaders stood together in a moment of silence.
“Great day. Beautiful day,” Trump remarked to reporters during the visit. “Thank you for being here. Appreciate it.”
In a message to Americans proclaiming the national holiday, President Trump urged everyone to recommit themselves to King’s vision of equality.
