Trump no longer expected to visit African American museum on MLK Day

Wow, and you'd think that after his twitter melt down about Lewis he'd want to smooth things out with the African American community? Now he's claiming there's some kind of last minute scheduling issues, so he's not going to be able to visit the museum:

Report coming from The Hill



President-elect Donald Trump is reportedly no longer expected to visit the National Museum of African American History and Culture on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

The president-elect will no longer make the visit on Monday because of scheduling issues, ABC News reported, citing transition officials.

He is instead expected to visit the museum sometime after he assumes office, the network reported. On Saturday, ABC News reported the president-elect was expected to make a visit to the museum on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

The reports come amid backlash from Democrats and some Republicans over Trump's recent attacks on Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.). In an interview last week, the civil rights icon said he didn't think Trump was a "legitimate president," pointing to Russian meddling in the U.S. presidential election.


Interesting. I wonder if these scheduling conflicts were made known before or after the twitter comments made about John Lewis?

If we study the past behavior of Trump, it's quite clear that this fits perfectly into his previous patterns of behavior. If Trump is upset or angry with you, he will ignore you or stop doing business with you. That is his way of dealing with people he doesn't like. In this case, it seems he's not happy with the backlash his tweets caused, and a scheduling issue has surfaced.

And all of this, I'm quite certain is just a distraction to keep the Americans away from the Russia-Trump connection. I will give the man props, he knows how to change the narrative.

I honestly wonder what could be so important that he has to change his schedule? A visit the museum wouldn't take very long, and be a great PR opportunity and go a long way in proving Mr. Trump doesn't have any racist motives.

With all the reports of protests upcoming, and a vocal few who don't want to see Trump finish a full term as president, I wonder if this scheduling issue is actually a security precaution.

Presidents usually don't advertise when they will be in public areas.

I'm not sure how a slight against Lewis would require smoothing things out with the black community, since the two are not the same, but I suppose a politics rife with identity mongering would make such a stupid conclusion.

I understand people are so used to public relations and marketing ploys, but I think the time for all that is over. Results and not showmanship will be the new norm.

Seems like John Lewis triggered him really bad.

The best way to get into the head of a bully is to stand up to the bully.

How does visiting a museum have anything to do with a self-defense tweet to some fat, asshole congressman?

because they are both black and share the same values and concerns,history etc etc,

unless you are talking about a black criminal then you can`t judge or compare all black people by the actions of a few,because in that case they don`t all share the same history, values, concerns,etc.

I don`t understand how that works either you would have to ask a liberal to explain it to you.

How does visiting a museum prove your not racist?
I dont think Trumps a racist at all but its that kind of token sound bite thinking thats the problem with politics.

Visiting this museum isnt in anyway a priority, its a photo op and the sort of thing a normal politician would do to pander to the masses, "look at me Im at a black museum, I love and respect black people"

Maybe, just maybe hes prioritising and this was less important than what else he had on

Well, he WAS planning on visiting. It probably seemed like nice outreach and a thoughtful gesture.

Now?

I have to question his motives.

It's not like it's the tomb of the unknown soldier on Vet's day.

Sheesh.

Why would he go there anyway?

Because it's a nice gesture on a nationally-sanctioned holiday.

It was planned. Now its cancelled.

It seems most of you think he shouldn't have scheduled it in the first place.

And , as a true Georgian that knows Fulton County , Trump spoke the truth

As a Georgian , I would have accepted the offer. I would tell Lewis and company I would accept if we would walk together for 3 blocks anywhere in Fulton County at night. Lewis would have contracted a bad case of the flu suddenly

That's exactly what it is and I can't say that I blame him.

We just spent 8 years of Obama catching hell for even the smallest of missed engagements. And yet those same people are giving Trump a pass. Do they really not see the hypocrisy?

If Donald Trump visited an African American museum, the museum curator would come under fire from the MSM, just like STEVE HARVEY is now being subjected to, for visiting with Donald Trump last week.
