CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) - The Rev. Al Sharpton told a church congregation in Camden this weekend that he’s “not fretting Donald Trump” because he made it through the administration of former President Richard Nixon.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports (https://bit.ly/2huxszX ) the civil rights advocate made the remarks on Sunday while giving a sermon at Parkside United Methodist Church.

The 62-year-old said the American people will have to fight to preserve President Barack Obama’s achievements moving forward.

Sharpton added that the question isn’t what Trump will do as president, it’s what are we going to do as citizens?

Over the years Sharpton has spoken at several churches throughout the Camden area. This weekend’s sermon marks the first time that he preached at the 102-year-old house of worship.

Congregants praised Sharpton for his “uplifting” message.
