  • Former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon said that Martin Luther King, Jr. would be “proud” of what President Donald Trump has done for African-American and Latino workers in the U.S. “Martin Luther King ... he would be proud of what Donald Trump has done for [the] black and Hispanic working class, OK?” Bannon told ABC News Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl in an exclusive interview on “This Week” Sunday. Karl pushed back on Bannon's claim that Martin Luther King, Jr. would be proud of the effects of Trump's policies on minorities. “I think there are a lot of, a lot of civil rights leaders that would adamantly disagree with you on that,” Karl said. Bannon was responding to Karl's asking him about comments he made in March at an event with far-right French politicians. “Let them call you racist,' Bannon said at that event. 'Let them call you xenophobes. Let them call you nativists. Wear it as a badge of honor. Because every day, we get stronger and they get weaker.” TRENDING STORIES: Lumpkin County fears thousands of hippies might come to Bull Mountain Teen killer wants to apologize to mother of man he killed: 'I'm sorry for her loss' Severe storms dump hail in parts of metro Bannon told Karl his quote was taken out of context. “The lead-in to that was saying, 'When they can't fight you on the facts, they're going to call you racist,'” he said. “I was talking specifically about Donald Trump and his policies,” Bannon said Sunday. “His economic nationalism doesn't care about your race, your religion, your gender, your sexual preference. Here's what it cares about, that you're citizens of the United States of America. We have all-time low unemployment among blacks in this country and 20-year low among Hispanics. The black working class and Hispanic working class are now getting the benefits of border security and economic nationalism.” Bannon was previously CEO of the Trump campaign and is a former executive chairman of Breitbart, a far-right online media outlet. Earlier in the 'This Week' interview, when discussing the Trump administration's immigration policies, Bannon said, “This illegal immigration, the people that [are] hurt the most are the Hispanic and black working class. It suppresses their wages; it destroys their healthcare; it destroys their school systems.” Bannon said something similar to the BBC at the end of May. 'Martin Luther King would be proud of [Trump], of what he's done for the black and Hispanic community,' Bannon said. When the BBC reporter pushed back, Bannon said, 'It's the lowest unemployment in recorded history. You don't think Martin Luther King wouldn't be proud? Look at the unemployment we had in the black community five years ago. You don't think Martin Luther King would sit there and go, 'Yes, you're putting young black men and women to work.'' He also said in that interview, “Mass illegal immigration is a scam by the globalists. It’s there to suppress the wages of the black and Hispanic working class by giving unlimited competition on labor.” King's daughter, Bernice A King, responded to Bannon in a thread on Twitter.   #SteveBannon has dangerously and erroneously co-opted my father’s name, work and words. Bannon’s assertion that my father, #MLK, would be proud of Donald Trump wholly ignores Daddy’s commitment to people of all races, nationalities, etc. being treated with dignity and respect.— Be A King (@BerniceKing) May 24, 2018   King said that her father 'was an activist for the civil rights of Black people in America, but he was also an activist for human rights.' He wouldn't use the term 'illegal aliens' to refer to undocumented immigrants, she said, and he wouldn't 'pit one group against one another in the struggle for justice.' 'Bannon’s comments are like feeding someone empty calories, in that they don’t convey a comprehensive view of #MLK as a global humanitarian who cared about the well-being of all people,' she continued. King said her father 'would be extremely disturbed by the climate created by leaders' as it has 'emboldened people to easily express and demonstrate cruelty, predominantly toward people of color and immigrants.'

  • A 24-hour arts and music festival in New Jersey was on the verge of being shut down because of numerous fights when gunfire erupted, authorities said. One suspect was killed and 22 people, including two other suspects, were injured. Of the 17 people treated for gunshot wounds, including a 13-year-old boy, only one person, a suspect, remained in critical condition Sunday night, said Mercer County Prosecutor Angelo Onofri. About 1,000 people were attending the Art All Night Trenton festival that showcases local art, music, food and films when shots rang out early Sunday morning, sending people scrambling to safety. Onofri said numerous fights inside and outside the venue had prompted police to tell organizers that the event needed to be shut down. 'There was a report that the mood inside the venue had been changing,' Onofri said. 'During that time period, prior to the shooting, the Trenton Police Department began dispersing individuals. Those individuals, however, continued to loiter and additional fights broke out.' Authorities believe several neighborhood gangs had a dispute, and multiple suspects began shooting at each other, with police returning fire, Onofri said. Tahaij Wells, 33, the suspect who was killed, had recently been released from prison and was on parole since February on homicide-related charges, Onofri said. Another suspect, 23-year-old Amir Armstrong, remained hospitalized in stable condition and was charged with a weapons offense. It was not immediately known if he had an attorney who could comment. A third suspect remained in critical condition. Gennie Darisme was getting ready to leave the festival when she heard gunfire and saw people running. 'There were people trampling other people, cars hitting other cars,' she said. When she was walking back to her car after the gunfire stopped, Darisme said she saw someone bleeding on the ground, in handcuffs. 'People were running to him, trying to see his face, to see if he's a family member or a friend,' she said. Theresa Brown, who has been volunteering at Art All Night for 12 years, said she was leaving her volunteer shift when she heard 'pop, pop, pop. I thought it was a car backfiring,' she said. The festival had been scheduled to run from 3 p.m. Saturday to 3 p.m. Sunday, before it was canceled. 'We're very shocked. We're deeply saddened. Our hearts ache and our eyes are blurry but our dedication and resolve to building a better Trenton through community, creativity and inspiration will never fade. Not tonight. Not ever,' festival organizers posted on social media. ___ Associated Press writer Christina Paciolla contributed to this report from Philadelphia.
  • Attorneys are preparing to make their final pitches to jurors in the case of a former New England Mafia boss charged in the 1993 killing of a nightclub owner. Closing arguments are expected Monday in Francis 'Cadillac Frank' Salemme's trial. Salemme and his co-defendant, Paul Weadick, are charged with killing Steven DiSarro. Prosecutors say Salemme worried DiSarro would cooperate with authorities investigating the mobster. Another mobster, Stephen 'The Rifleman' Flemmi says he saw Salemme's son strangle DiSarro while Weadick held DiSarro's feet and Salemme stood by. Salemme's son died in 1995. DiSarro's remains were found in Providence, Rhode Island, in 2016. Salemme and Weadick face up to life in prison if convicted. They insist they're innocent. Salemme headed the New England family of La Cosa Nostra in the early 1990s.
