In a story largely ignored by the liberal media, President Trump recently named the birthplace of Martin Luther King Jr. as a National Historic Park.

Trump signed the law with bipartisan support.

According to NBC:

“King’s birth home, Ebenezer Baptist Church and King’s burial site have all been upgraded from a national historic site to a national historic park.

The Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Park Act, signed into law by President Donald Trump Monday aboard Air Force One, is one of the highest designations within the National Park Service. Trump said in a Tweet Tuesday it was “my great honor” to sign the bill.

Georgia Democratic Rep. John Lewis, sponsored the bill and said he is “so proud that we were able to work in a bipartisan, bicameral manner” to establish Georgia’s first National Historical Park ahead of King’s birthday and the 50th anniversary of his assassination.

“I hope that this moment will serve as a reminder of the constant work to realize Dr. King’s dream of building the Beloved Community — a community at peace with itself and our neighbors,” Lewis said in a statement.”
