Trump to rally for GOP's Senate candidate in Mississippi

Yearbook cheerleader pic allegedly shows GOP Sen. Hyde-Smith at 70s high school segregation academy

Johnson is free to support and donate his money to any candidate or cause he chooses, and the same can be said for Breton.

Welchlin says efforts are continuing in the runoff to mobilize voters with the issues of increased wages, expanded health care and more aid with child care. Cindy Hyde-Smith and Democrat Mike Espy.

Hyde-Smith has drawn fire for attending a white private school that was founded after court-ordered school desegregation of public schools. President Donald Trump will travel to MS on Monday to attend two rallies for Hyde-Smith, and Mississippi's Republican establishment is trying to push her to victory.

The donation was controversial because Hyde-Smith recently told a crowd at a campaign event that she would be "in the front row of a public hanging", if invited.

With all but one midterm election decided, national attention has turned to the U.S. Senate runoff race in MS between incumbent Republican Cindy Hyde-Smith and Democratic challenger Mike Espy. Hyde-Smith was sworn into office in April after her appointment by Gov. Phil Bryant.

Espy hasn't hammered Hyde-Smith on Trump at every turn.

The Jackson Free-Press reported a story Friday that explored Hyde-Smith's time at one of Mississippi's so-called segregation academies-schools established throughout the South by white parents trying to avoid public school integration. He has to close the gap in a state where Trump received 58 percent in 2016 and that hasn't elected a Democrat to the U.S. Senate since 1982.

Mexico denies deal with USA to host asylum seekers
President Donald Trump has won support from the Mexican president-elect's team for a plan dubbed " Remain in Mexico ". During his Thanksgiving break, Mr Trump also threatened to close entry into the country from the southern border .

Is she facing other issues?

MS has a history of racially motivated lynchings and violence against people who sought voting rights for black citizens, and Hyde-Smith has been sharply criticized after two videos surfaced this month. The victor Tuesday gets the final two years of a six-year term. The Washington Post reported that in 2001, Hyde-Smith introduced a bill as a state senator to rename a stretch of highway to what it had been called in the 1930s: the Jefferson Davis Memorial Highway, after the president of the Confederacy. Her campaign said it was a joke.

Over weekend, Major League Baseball created a firestorm of controversy for itself when it made a $5,000 donation - the maximum donation allowed under the law - to MS senator Cindy Hyde-Smith.

Trump said repeatedly Monday that Hyde-Smith had apologized for her comments and that he believed she was honest.

Yearbook photos from Lawrence Academy, which is now closed, show Hyde was a cheerleader for a team that had a rebel mascot who carried a Confederate battle flag.

Democrat Mike Espy answers a question during a televised Mississippi U.S. Senate debate with his opponent appointed U.S. Sen. Alongside a smiling photo of herself in a Confederate hat and holding a rifle at a museum exhibit, the senator wrote, "Mississippi history at its best!"

Illinois Cox Littleton, 92, of Jackson, Miss., seated, went to the Hinds County Courthouse in Jackson on Saturday, Nov. 24, 2018, to cast an absentee ballot in a U.S. Senate runoff election.
