Brother of slain civil rights leader Medgar Evers endorses Trump

Civil rights activist Charles Evers has endorsed Donald Trump for president, touting what Evers refers to as the current Republican front-runner’s business acumen.

“I believe in him first of all because he’s a businessman. I think jobs are badly needed in Mississippi,” he said.

Evers is the brother of slain civil rights leader Medgar Evers, who was assassinated in front of his Jackson home in 1963.
