“As Martin Luther King said, ‘God said I have to love my enemies, he didn’t say I have to like them,’ ” Williamson told CNN’s “New Day.”

“Sometimes love says ‘no.’ Love is not sentimental and weak and anemic,” Williamson added. “Love is powerful. Love is strength. Sometimes it's because we love a child that we say ‘no.’ Our president is not a king. Part of the core of American freedom is that we get to protest.”

Williamson added that her remarks were not intended to single out Trump alone. “We need to say ‘no’ to every elected official who does more to serve the [National Rifle Association] and the short-term profits of gun manufacturers than to serve us,” she told the program.
