President Donald Trump signed a measure Monday creating a new national historic park for Martin Luther King Jr. during a trip to the college football national championship game in Atlanta.
The President performed the signing on Air Force One with Alveda King, the niece of the late iconic civil rights leader, looking on.
The law creates the first national historic park in the state of Georgia. It was sponsored by Democratic Rep. John Lewis, a vocal Trump critic who recently boycotted the opening of the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum because the President spoke at the event.

The nation will celebrate a federal holiday named for King on Monday.
Earlier Monday, Trump signed a related bill, the African American Civil Rights Network Act of 2017, which requires the National Park Service to link various historical sites related to the civil rights movement.
He also signed the 400 Years of African-American History Commission Act to commemorate the arrival of the first Africans in the English colonies at Point Comfort, Va., in 1619.
MLK’s niece thanked 45.
From CBN News:
“I was there on Air Force One, and I was there when the president signed the bill in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr., my uncle, making that historic site here in Atlanta, Georgia, where I live, a national park,” Evangelist Dr. Alveda King told CBN News.
Alveda King told CBN News that the president’s signing of the bill refutes the narrative that Trump is a racist – a narrative that circulated after Trump’s response to the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia. Many felt the president did not denounce racism and bigotry forcefully enough.
“And so that (the signing of the bill) was not a racist act, and somebody says, ‘Well, he had to sign it.’ Well, he didn’t,” Alveda King said. “Presidents veto bills all the time. President Trump was happy to sign that bill.”
“And so many times, President Donald John Trump has expressed admiration for Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.,” she added.
“I believe that President Donald John Trump is working very hard to make America great again,” the niece of the slain civil rights leader said. “And he continues to demonstrate that he wants to do that for all Americans, so the question of racism just doesn’t fit that profile to me.”
Alveda King also said Trump is working for every American, no matter their “skin color and socioeconomic conditions.”
“So do I believe that President Donald John Trump is a racist? No, I do not,” she emphasized. “And I celebrate 2018 and believing that Americans will come together and lead the world as an example as one nation under God.”
