Are people being too harsh on Donald Trump for ending the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) program and subjecting "dreamers" to possible deportation? Martin Luther King Jr.'s son Dexter Scott King seems to think so, and he is willing to give the president a chance to do the right thing.

In an interview with TMZ, King said that he is giving Trump "the benefit of the doubt" when it comes to the dreamers and is waiting to see what happens before he judges him. 

"It's hard to question somebody, what's in their heart," he said when asked if he thought Trump's comment about having love for the dreamers was genuine. "I can only take him at his word and hopefully his actions, that he will encourage Congress and also sign whatever legislation comes out to deal with this crisis."

Dexter Scott King isn't the first person to suggest giving Trump a chance. Dave Chappelle famously said it during his monologue on Saturday Night Live, but later updated that stance on the "Late Show" by confessing that he didn't actually want to give Trump a chance. 

Trump says that Congress has six months to figure out the DACA situation, and if they don't, he'll "revisit the issue." So we'll see how giving him a chance pans out.
