Donald Trump Attempted To Enter The ‘Civil Rights Museum’, Their Response Was PERFECT (VIDEO)


Donald Trump wants to do more culturally tone deaf “outreach” to black people, this time with a visit to the International Civil Rights Center & Museum in Greensboro, N.C. The GOP presidential candidate had hoped to swing by last Tuesday, because he was also giving a speech at High Point University that day.

There was just one problem. The people running the museum told Donald Trump not to come. But it wasn’t the “African-American town hall” with no black people, the phony church visits, the racist followers, the tone-deaf comments on black communities, or even the blatant birtherism that got him 86’ed.

WFMY News 2 reports it was Donald Trump’s disrespect and expectations of special treatment that made museum co-founder Earl Jones nix the visit.

‘We did not honor the request of the Donald Trump team because we thought they demonstrated, in their approach was disrespectful, so therefore we did not grant that request.’

Jones told WFMY the campaign treated museum staff rudely while making their request. They also demanded that staff shut down the museum for five hours. On top of all that, he felt the request for a visit was insincere.

‘The approach, the type of disrespect, pretty much a demand and bullying us to use the museum in their manner and their way in their time,  it was inappropriate and I think it’s probably reflective of the type of insensitivity of civil rights and human rights that’s reflective from Trump over the years.’

Earl Jones insists Donald Trump and his entourage are welcome, but no one gets special treatment. He also took care to clarify that the same would go for Hillary Clinton.

‘We have equal treatment for everyone coming to the museum and we welcome everyone to the museum but we are not going to allow the museum to be used for political gain.’

After all, isn’t equal treatment for everyone the very point of the International Civil Rights Center & Museum?

WFMY News 2 tried to reach the Donald Trump campaign to get their side of the story, but as of Saturday, no one had called them back.
