UPDATED: Trump May Be in Jackson for Civil Rights, History Museums' Opening

JACKSON — This weekend, the Museum of Mississippi History and the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum will open their doors—and President Donald Trump might make an appearance.

This afternoon, CNN reporter Kaitlan Collins reported that Trump will make an appearance at the opening on Saturday. However, the White House press office could not confirm the president's schedule for this weekend to the Jackson Free Press. An advisory listing his schedule will be published later in the week.

In a press release, Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., says that Gov. Phil Bryant invited the president to attend the event on Saturday.

"With President Donald Trump accepting Gov. Phil Bryant's invitation to attend the opening of the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum, I am hopeful he will begin to understand the pain he is causing in the black and underserved communities across America," Thompson said in a press release. "His unfair budget cuts in agriculture, education, healthcare, and housing disproportionately impacts people of color and is viewed by many as an act reminiscent of Jim Crow policies of the south."

12. And perhaps he'll regurgitate this nugget, dalton:

“Frederick Douglass is an example of somebody who’s done an amazing job and is getting recognized more and more, I notice,” the president said.

7. This does not sound like a stellar plan

It rates right up there with sending Richard Dawkins to the dedication of a cathedral. If you thought the Pocahontas comment and Andrew Jackson painting at the Code Talkers memorial was insensitive and low, wait till he gets to a building constructed to honor people he hates.

9. Trump can't learn and doesn't want to learn better. Any hopes that he will is wishful thinking.

Why would anyone want a racist there? Why?

11. One of my distant cousins is the Mayor...

He's a black, Detroit born Democrat with the last name of Lumumba...

I'm sure that he'd give Trump an appropriate welcome.

13. Mr., I can't find the picture, but I'm envisioning the mayor in Blazing Saddles saying,

"And now we'd like to welcome our new

(raises head)

NAZI!"
