DescriptionDonald Trump, who in recent weeks has stirred racial tensions, says he has no plans to visit the late Congressman John Lewis as the civil rights icon lies in state at the US Capitol.

"No I won't be going," the president said. "No."

The president delivered the news as he left the White House for a trip to North Carolina. As he took reporters' questions, Mr Lewis' casket had just arrived at the Capitol, where a military honour guard carried his American-flag draped casket up the white stairs and into the rotunda.

Gathered were lawmakers from both parties and Mr Lewis' family.
