President Donald Trump made a surprise visit to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s memorial in Washington, D.C. on Monday — but he stayed for less than two minutes.
Although Trump had no public events scheduled on MLK Day, he and Vice President Mike Pence took time out of their morning for a short trip to the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial.
But as the White House pool noted, the visit was short-lived. MSNBC video shows Trump spending less than two minutes at the site.
According to the pool, Trump made no remarks about King while visiting the memorial.
President Trump did in fact place a wreath at the #MLK memorial. Per WH pool it was an efficient trip:
11:06am left WH
11:12am arrive MLK Memorial
11:15am left MLK Memorial
11:22am back at WH
