Emory president: Students scared by 'Trump 2016' chalk signs
ATLANTA - The president of Emory University has met with 40 to 50 student demonstrators who said they were concerned and frightened after someone wrote "Trump 2016" in chalk on campus sidewalks and some buildings.
Jim Wagner, president of the Atlanta university, wrote Tuesday that the students viewed the messages as intimidation, and they voiced "genuine concern and pain" as a result.
Emory on Wednesday provided The Associated Press with a copy of Wagner's letter, in which he said students confronted by Trump's name in chalk "heard a message about values regarding diversity and respect that clash with Emory's own."
Emory's student newspaper, The Wheel, reported that the students this week chanted, "You are not listening! Come speak to us, we are in pain!" shortly before Wagner agreed to meet with them.
