Leaders discuss king is shipping problems to U.S. President Barack Obama with President-elect Donald Trump
King, who is a longtime critic of the Obama administration, said he expected the new preside바카라nt to do as well as outgoing president Jimmy Carter.
'It will be good news for African-Americans," King said. 'I'm sure that it will be very helpful and encourage everybody. It will certainly be positive news for us. I'm sure that the people who are saying the opposite, that this will make it harder for us to become a strong country or to succeed, I'm sure th바카라ey're wrong.
'I just don't agree with that at all. All I know is what he has done and what we're hearing, this was one of the boldest decisions I'v더킹카지노e ever had to make to make an important decision.'
