Trump honors MLK Day, won't answer questions about vulgar comments

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON (AP) -

President Donald Trump did not respond to questions about his use of a vulgarity or his question about why the U.S. should accept more immigrants from Haiti and African nations than from countries like Norway.

The questions came Friday in the White House when Trump signed a proclamation honoring Martin Luther King Jr. Day, noting the contributions of a “great American hero.”

Trump did not respond to several questions about the incident, including whether he actually used vulgar language to describe African nations, or if he is racist.

The president said at the White House that “love was central” to the slain civil rights leader. Trump said the nation celebrates King for “standing up for the self-evident truth Americans hold so dear, that no matter what the color of our skin or place of our birth, we are all created equal by God.”wa

    Radon is odorless and tasteless, so testing is the only way to know if you have elevated levels in your home. Southern Colorado has even higher radon potential because of the amount of granite in the soil.
