Is Trump an elitist?
You bet he is.
He’s used to having things given to him, due to his wealth and reality TV fame.
Let’s be honest. If he didn’t have the name recognition from reality TV and a complicit, treasonous media behind him, he would have never made it through the primaries.
Imagine his surprise when a Greensboro, North Carolina civil rights museum told him, “Thanks, but no thanks.”
The International Civil Rights Center and Museum was contacted by the Donald Trump campaign last weekend. Earl Jones, co-founder of the museum, says the campaign demanded certain things to make a visit by the GOP nominee possible.
Jones says Trump’s people were trying to plan a visit for Tuesday, the same day he spoke at High Point University.
“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,” said Jones.
Jones says the Trump campaign was aggressive and rude to museum staff in making their request.
He says Trump’s people wanted the museum to be closed for at least 5 hours to accommodate Trump.
Jones says the museum does not provide special treatment to anyone and says that is the main reason they denied the request.
Jones went on to say that he felt that the rude treatment from Trump’s staff was probably indicative of how Trump has always conducted himself and is reflective of his view of civil rights.
Apparently, Mr. Jones has been keeping up through the primaries.
When asked if he would deny Hillary Clinton if she made the same request — Jones said yes.
He said Trump and Clinton are both welcome to the museum but says they won’t provide any special treatment.
“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,” said Jones.
And it’s a good policy.
I can’t say I disagree with his assessment of Trump. I do question if he would have been as steadfast in his refusal to accommodate Clinton.
I’m going to guess not.
