Civil Rights Museum Denies Donald Trump’s Visit Request

Donald Trump Claims Black People Are In Worst Shape 'Ever, Ever, Ever'

As Donald Trump gears up for his forthcoming presidential debate against Hillary Clinton, the Republican nominee has been trying to embarked on something of an outreach plan to black people, in hopes of getting their vote. As you can imagine it’s been laughably unsuccessful: from saying that black people are in the worst shape they’ve been “Ever, ever, ever” to proposing that stop and frisk tactics be used to combat black on black crime, Trump’s been taking multiple L’s which haven’t really stopped him from still trying to get support.

Now, apparently Trump tried to get special treatment at a civil rights museum in Greensboro, North Carolina, but the museum rightfully denied him.

As WFMY reported, Trump’s campaign reached out to The International Civil Rights Center and Museum for exclusive treatment, requesting that the museum be closed for at least five hours to accommodate the visit. Trump would’ve visited that same Tuesday when he gave his aforementioned speech on the shape of black people. However, Trump and his team were denied.

“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,” museum co-founder Earl Jones said.

Jones said that the Trump campaign was aggressive and rude to museum staff in making their request, and that the main reason they denied them special treatment in the first place is because they don’t provide that type of request to anyone.

“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 of Mr. Trump over the years,” Jones said.

Oh well, probably wouldn’t have helped you anyways, Trump.
