Alveda King, niece of the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., claims her uncle would have prayed for and with President Donald Trump in the spirit of God and unity, on “Fox & Friends” Wednesday.

“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,” she said. “My uncle, one of my favorite quotes, 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. I believe that.”

“My uncle loved god very much,” King continued. “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.”

King said her uncle devoted his life to service. She believes people must “return to God” and embrace prayer.

“During his whole lifetime, [MLK] lived a life of love and service. And he did take the knee during his last time. I’m talking to the millennials now,” King said. “But he took the knee in prayer to God. So we’ve got to return to God. We have to have God among us. And that is something as a Christian preacher, Martin Luther King Jr. would be saying today.”

“I believe he would pray for the president, with the president. Pray for and with America,” King concluded. “That’s the message, agape love. One community, one blood, one race. That’s his message.”
