President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence made a brief and previously unannounced visit to the Martin Luther King, JR. Memorial on the National Mall on a brutally cold Martin Luther Kind Jr. Day morning. 

Mr. Trump and Pence placed a wreath at the memorial. The President’s motorcade spent about six minutes at the memorial, according to the White House press pool. The temperature was only roughly 17 degrees during Mr. Trump’s visit, with a wind chill that made it feel like 1 degree. 

The visit was not on Mr. Trump’s public White House schedule and the White House kept the trip quiet until Mr. Trump arrived. In between tweets touting the economic growth and blaming Democrats for the shutdown, Mr. Trump remembered the civil rights leader’s life in a tweet Monday morning. 

“Today we celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr for standing up for the self-evident truth Americans hold so dear, that no matter what the color of our skin or the place of our birth, we are all created equal by God,” Mr. Trump tweeted, reiterating remarks he gave last year to remember King.
