“A member of the [Trump] event staff approached a member of our agency and requested that the group be asked to leave,” Capt. Stryde Jones, a Lowndes County Sheriff’s officer, told the network.
Another member of local law enforcement who worked the event backed up Jones’ account.
“I spoke to a Trump staffer, whose name I do not have, she told us that they needed to leave,” Valdosta Police Chief Brian Childress told MSNBC. “Not only did I talk to a Trump staffer, so did the University police, and we were told over the radio by the Sheriff’s office that Trump staff wanted them out.”
You’d think kicking people out of a rally because of the color of their skin would be something the Trump campaign would be comfortable admitting to—isn’t that kind of Trump’s whole policy agenda in a nutshell?—but apparently they don’t have the courage of their convictions on this one. If you were tempted to believe those denials from the Trump team, though, think again. They’re really as disgusting and racist as they appear.
