Dr. Alveda King responded to remarks made by Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga., who claimed on Friday President Donald Trump didn't know about the struggle of African-Americans and the history of the civil rights movement, the Washington Examiner reported Sunday.

"Trump himself is a very brilliant man. I believe he is compassionate," King told "Fox & Friends" Sunday.

King, who is the niece of the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., said Trump was "knowledgeable of much of the history of African Americans" and has "surrounded himself" with African-American leaders. She also said the president was "certainly fighting for civil rights for the little unborn persons in the womb who have a right to live."

King is director of the anti-abortion group Civil Rights for the Unborn.
