    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump has paid a visit to the Martin Luther King Jr. memorial in Washington on the holiday honoring the civil rights leader.

    Trump arrived shortly after 11 a.m. to pay his respects on a frigid and windy day.

    He was joined by Vice President Mike Pence, who accompanied Trump in laying a wreath at the foot of the memorial statue.

    Trump told reporters it was a "great day" and a "beautiful day."

    He did not respond to questions about the government shutdown during the short appearance.
