Al Sharpton, the civil rights activist, reverend, and MSNBC host, has commented on Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s case against President Donald Trump by suggesting that the indictment is motivated by political revenge.
Sharpton said the quiet part out loud by describing the indictment of the 45th president as “spiritual” payback for Trump’s policies as POTUS.
He also suggested that the case is seen as revenge against Trump for calling for the death penalty in the Central Park 5 case in 1989.
However, as Sharpton should know, Trump called for the death penalty in the case before any suspects were identified, so his comments had nothing to do with race.
Sharpton even said out loud that DA Bragg will “deliver us justice.”
While celebrating Bragg’s indictment, Sharpton failed to mention the charges that the George Soros-funded prosecutor is accusing Trump of.
Sharpton said: “I’m always looking for the spiritual interpretation of something.
“And I think it’s very ironic that on the 55th anniversary of Dr. King’s assassination, the president that tried to turn back a lot of what King did is going to be arraigned in Manhattan Supreme Court by a black DA.
“I’m thinking of Dr. King as the first black Manhattan DA will deliver us justice and bring criminal charges against President Trump.”
Trump campaign spokesman Steven Cheung ripped the MSNBC host:
“Mr. Sharpton should get his own house in order before talking about something he has no clue about.”
You have some imagination Biden-boy. Trump did more for Black Americans than any president in the last 50 years. And the Conservatives of their community (a category that is growing and growing) know it. pic.twitter.com/DOsIl6bwdw

According to Mediaite:
Sharpton, the president of National Action Network, said that the Central Park Five, who were exonerated in 2002 were not only victims of the criminal justice system but also the hate that was spread by figures like Trump.
“But today we see progress with the arc of history bending towards justice, just as Dr. King said,” Sharpton said.
“While we celebrate this moment of justice on the anniversary of King’s assassination, we have to remember the work is not done.”
