President Trump: ‘I love being with you in Mississippi’

MS police are investigating two nooses and six signs that were found on the grounds of the state Capitol on Monday, a day before a U.S. Senate runoff that has focused attention on the state's history of racist violence. Cindy Hyde-Smith, the Republican incumbent in the Mississippi Senate race, whose recent comments about "public hanging" have caused her to lose donors and prompted outcry heading into the runoff election on Tuesday.

"If he invited me to a public hanging, I'd be on the front row", Hyde-Smith joked with a supporter in a video earlier this month shared on Twitter. Tuesday's victor will serve the last two years of Cochran's six-year term.

Mr. Trump held a festive, Christmas-themed rally for Hyde-Smith in Biloxi Monday night, and a rally earlier that day for her in Tupelo, 300 miles to the north. The sign also read: "We need someone who respects the lives of lynch victims".

"I'll vote for Mrs. Smith you know, because being a Republican", said Betty Lechman, a Biloxi-area resident of five decades, at the Edgewater Mall food court table where she and her friends meet every day of the week except Sundays, which are reserved for church.

"She stood up to the Democrat smear machine", Trump said. The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) website says that between 1882 and 1968, there were 4,743 lynchings in the United States, and that almost 73 percent of the victims were black. Hyde-Smith remarked that she would go to a "public hanging," a comment she said was made in jest and eventually apologized for.

Carlos Ghosn To Continue As Renault Chairman Despite Corruption Allegations
Jeff Kingston, director of Asian Studies at Temple University Japan, said that Ghosn was "a victim of his own hubris and success". Renault is opting to wait for the Japanese investigation, allowing Ghosn to keep his job as CEO and position as board chairman.

"I know her, and I know she apologised, and she misspoke", the Republican president told reporters on his way to the southern state.

According to the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), Mississippi had the highest number of lynchings in the nation from 1882 to 1968. Officials say they will release pictures of the signs and nooses later Monday. I won't tell Major League Baseball what it should do, but having experience with campaign committees, I'll say that this is the sort of thing people get fired over when public-facing businesses are involved or, at the very least, something for which they offer full explanations and apologies.

"On Tuesday, November 27th, thousands of Mississippians will vote for a Senator". If elected, Espy would be the first black person elected to the Senate from the state since the era of Reconstruction.

Espy has served in Congress and was a secretary of Agriculture under President Bill Clinton.

"No one twisted your comments", Espy responded.
