These two very famous and influential men are not usually associated with each other. Find out how The King met the POTUS at the White House.
You might not have thought of these two as friends, but they bonded over an unusual proposition. Two of the most talked about men of the 1970s actually met and discussed the state of our nation. Elvis Presley offered his help to President Nixon in 1971 during an impromptu meeting at the White House. The King wanted to help the POTUS with the “drug culture” and other “problems” in the U.S. The offer on the table included personal appearances by The King in support of law enforcement officials. Elvis even went so far as to ask Nixon for a Bureau of Narcotics badge since he collected badges! Check out this amazing video on how the two met and corresponded.
