Donald Trump's attendance at an opening of a Civil Rights Museum in Mississippi has sparked a boycott by Black leaders.

Many of them stayed away from the launch, accusing the president of racial division.

The National Association for the Advancement for Colored People, or NAACP, the most storied civil rights organization in America, had asked Trump not to come, saying Trump has done nothing to support black Americans as president.
