- President Donald Trump will be traveling to MS on Saturday to attend the opening of a new civil rights museum.

He's calling Trump's planned attendance "an affront to the veterans of the civil rights movement".

Governor Phil Bryant told WLBT-TV an invitation was extended to the president several months ago but no official confirmation of his visit has come from the White House.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said at Tuesday's press briefing that the president plans to attend the opening ceremony.

President Donald Trump plans to visit MS for the state's bicentennial and to help open two museums, including one dedicated to civil rights.

Activists are threatening to boycott or protest Trump's participation.

Trump has repeatedly faced backlash for making inflammatory statements about minority groups, sparking controversy after a deadly white nationalist rally in Charlottesville for saying that "both sides" are to blame.

He's also criticized black NFL players for kneeling during the national anthem to protest police violence and racism.
