Texas A&M plans unity event at same time as speech by white nationalist who led 'Hail Trump' chant

Texas A&M University will hold an event next week that highlights unity on campus at the same time a white nationalist leader is scheduled to speak at the school.

In a statement that does not mention Richard Spencer by name, Texas A&M president Michael K. Young announced an event called "Aggies United" at Kyle Field from 6 to 9 p.m. Dec. 6. Young said the event, which is open to students, faculty, staff and the public, will allow people to add their names to a wall "expressing their commitment to unity."

Spencer, 38, a leader of the so-called alt-right movement, was invited by a former Texas A&M student to speak at the school about his political beliefs.

The "alt-right" is a conservative movement that combines white nationalism, racism and populism. Though Spencer claims he is not a white supremacist, he supports a white ethno-state a nation without people of color, Jews, Muslims or anyone else who does not share a common European heritage.

Schieffer, a Texan who has covered every presidential election since 1964, gave his autopsy of the 2016 race in a discussion with his colleague, CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley, who is also a Texan. The event was part of the Dallas Citizens Council's annual meeting at the Dallas Omni Hotel.

Former Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison introduced the pair and called the 2016 campaign "a presidential election that defies description."
