President Donald Trump pays tribute to Martin Luther King Jr. (Screen cap).

Even though President Donald Trump insisted on Thursday that he didn't want immigrants from "sh*thole" African countries coming to the United States, he paid tribute to Martin Luther King, Jr. on Friday by saying that you can be an American citizen regardless of wherever you were born.


"No matter what the color of our skin or the place of birth, we are all equal by God," Trump said during his tribute.

The irony of Trump reciting these scripted words despite just one day ago ranting about immigrants who come from "sh*tholes" was not lost on many Twitter users, who pounced on the president with scorn and derision.
