Dr. Alveda King, the niece of the late Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., said that her uncle would have prayed with President Donald Trump and for him.
"I believe if my uncle were here today, he would pray for the president, pray with the president, if he had an opportunity, and to pray for this great nation," King said Wednesday on "Fox & Friends."
King recited one of her favorite quotes from her late uncle.
"'We must learn to live together as brothers' — and I added sisters — 'or perish together as fools. If we work together. We won't perish.' And I believe that.
"My uncle loved God very much, and he loved humanity. We are one blood, one human race. And I believe he's right. We can learn to live together as brothers and sisters," she said.
On Wednesday, speeches and marches marked the 50th anniversary of King's assassination.
King's granddaughter Yolanda Renee King, age 9, appeared on "Good Morning America" Wednesday to discuss her grandfather's legacy.
"We're not where we're supposed to be," she said.
