White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders says Trump will help open the Museum of Mississippi History and the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum on Saturday.

Trump has been criticized for racially charged tweets and comments, including blaming "both sides" for violence at a deadly white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.
