Donald Trump denied visit to US International Civil rights museum

A civil rights museum has turned down a request from Donald Trump’s campaign for a special visit.

The billionaire real estate mogul was denied any “special treatment” for a visit to the International Civil Rights Center & Museum in Greensboro, North Carolina, its co-founder said on Saturday.

According to Early Jones, the museum was unable to meet the Republican candidate’s list of long demands, including closure of the complex for five complete hours for him to be accommodated.

Apart from divisive policies towards minorities in the United States, Trump had been aggressive and rude to museum staff, Jones suggested.

“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,” he told WFMY News 2.

He further suggested that Trump’s request was insincere and meant “to exploit the legacy” of those who have made sacrifices for human rights movements.

Trump’s rival, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, would have also been denied any special treatment at the museum, said Jones, an African American.

Trump is not very popular among human rights activists and organizations for his policy proposals against minorities and refugees, including a plan to build a wall on the Mexican border to stop asylum seekers from entering the country as well as calls for a complete ban on Muslims’ entry into the US.

The rejection came as the US was struggling with racial profiling of African Americans by police, which has triggered nation wide Black Lives Matter protests, following several high-profile shooting deaths of the community members.
