Why a former Mississippi governor won’t attend the civil rights museum opening

Former Mississippi Gov. Ray Mabus, who also served as Secretary of the Navy under President Barack Obama, today issued the following statement on Donald Trump attending Mississippi Civil Rights Museum Opening on Saturday:

“It is with a great deal of sadness that I will not attend the opening of the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum on Saturday,” he said in a statement emailed out Thursday morning. “This institution and event should be a celebration of the hard-won progress in civil rights, but the main speaker, Donald Trump, is actively attacking that progress and turning us back to the dark days of hatred and division."
