Trump Backs Removal of Confederate Flag in SC

By    |   Tuesday, 23 Jun 2015 04:54 PM

Presidential candidate Donald Trump backs the decision by South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley to remove the Confederate flag from the state capitol grounds.

"I would take it down, yes," the billionaire real estate developer said during a press conference Tuesday at the Trump National Golf Club in Virginia, Politico reported. "I think they should put it in a museum and respect whatever it is you have to respect."

Trump said again that he has invited President Barack Obama to come play at his new golf course, but that he has yet to receive a reply from the White House.

According to The Washington Post, when he was asked about having a reputation as a bully, he said that he's "being very nice now. I'm trying to be presidential. I have to be very different."

Trump also addressed the controversy surrounding his use of Neil Young's song "Rockin' in the Free World" when he announced his candidacy last Tuesday, saying that Young came to his office at Trump Tower looking for funding for a project.

"He came up to my office, he was in my office. There's this tremendous dishonesty," the real estate mogul said. "The difference between me and someone else is that I'll tell that story. And I don't think Neil Young would deny it."
