President Donald Trump made a brief unannounced stop at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Monday morning as the country honors the civil rights icon.

Vice President Mike Pence accompanied Trump to the memorial and gazed on adoringly as the president spoke.

“Good morning, everybody,” Trump said after he laid a wreath. “It’s a great day. It’s a beautiful day. And thank you for being here. Appreciate it.”

The visit lasted approximately two minutes. Trump did not mention King or King’s legacy.

Following the visit, Trump wrote a short tribute to King on Twitter.

“Today,” Trump wrote, “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. #MLKDay”

The tweet was met with ferocious jeering.
