President Donald Trump does not have plans to pay respects to civil rights icon John Lewis, who is the first Black lawmaker to lie in state at the U.S. Capitol Rotunda.


According to CNN's Kaitlan Collins, the president will travel to North Carolina instead of visiting the U.S. Capitol.

Trump is expected to dispatch Vice President Mike Pence to pay respects to the late civil rights leader.
