Martin Luther King's daughter says 'God can triumph over Trump'
The daughter of slain civil rights leader Martin Luther King marked the holiday that honors her father on Monday by siding with African-American congressman and activist John Lewis over President-elect Donald Trump in an imbroglio that erupted over the weekend. Lewis, 76, a contemporary of King's who endured beatings and jail time in the fight for racial equality in the 1960s, said in a televised interview that he saw Trump's election as illegitimate because of Russian tampering in the campaign, drawing a scornful response from Trump.
