President Trump also sparked anger by trying to turn the holiday into a tribute to himself with a tweet linking it to the three-year anniversary of his inauguration.

“Would it kill Trump Jr to tweet something respectful about MLK without mentioning his father,” asked one.

Added another: “Irony is dead.”
