A prominent civil rights group is marking Martin Luther King Jr. Day by pressing President Trump to honor his promise to create a national photo ID card for citizens.
Martin Luther King III, the oldest son of the iconic civil rights leader and a co-chairmen of the Drum Major Institute, met with Trump two years ago on MLK Day. During that meeting, the then president-elect endorsed the idea of a national photo ID. This year, the group is calling on Trump to follow through.
William Wachtel, co-founder of the Drum Major Institute, said the group sees the issue as critical to ensuring King’s work to remove barriers to voting.
The article goes on to state the following:
The group is asking Trump to issue an executive order instructing the Social Security Administration to create a social security card with a photo, a so-called “Trump card.” Supporters say such an ID would increase civic participation, prevent fraud and help the disadvantaged find resources.
