Georgia NAACP speaks out against Trump visit, group protests on Broadway
COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) - The NAACP held a news conference on Saturday morning to condemn the former President Donald Trump’s visit to Columbus.
The group issued a statement on Friday in response to the recent indictment related to the potential mishandling of classified documents.
“This information isn’t new. We’ve known for a long time that this outcome was possible. As fragile as our democracy is right now, it is utterly reprehensible for anyone of this conduct to lead a long list of election deniers to speak,” said President of the Georgia NAACP Gerald Griggs.
Additionally, a group of protesters gathered on Saturday afternoon at the intersection of 10th Street and Broadway to protest the visit. The gathering was peaceful.
