HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) — Presidential candidate Donald Trump’s visit to a Christian school and church in Las Vegas is being criticized by an advocacy group that says the institution openly discriminates against the disabled and people of other faiths.
But Pastor Paul Marc Goulet at the International Christian Academy, said Wednesday his school is just being honest with its policy restricting admission to children who can benefit academically and spiritually.
Battle Born Progress official Annette Magnus-Marquart called a declaration posted in the school handbook clearly discriminatory.
Trump praised the school during a visit to a first-grade class before his appearance at a concert venue in suburban Henderson.
He also visited with Hispanic business leaders at a Mexican restaurant before departing for northern Nevada and a scheduled afternoon rally at the Reno-Sparks Convention Center.
