Donald Trump Jr. will speak at UCLA Sunday and protesters have planned a demonstration in response.

An organization called Turning Point USA will be on the Westwood campus to host Trump Jr., who will talk about his new book, "Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us."

President Trump's son has recently been doing publicity engagements for the book, including a contentious appearance Thursday on the television show, "The View," in which he accused one of the show's hosts of having worn blackface and another for being soft on pedophilia. The book charges "the left" with trying to smear conservatives and push them out of the public square.

Activist group Refuse Fascism has planned a demonstration in protest, calling President Donald Trump's "Make America Great Again" platform a "21st century fascist program of Manifest Destiny," and a "specifically American culmination of white supremacy, misogyny and xenophobia."

The group also condemned Turning Point USA, accusing it of trying to build a fascist student movement.

Later Sunday the younger Trump will deliver a lecture and sign copies of the book at the Reagan Library in Simi Valley.

Tickets to the main auditorium are sold out. However, tickets are still available for a remote viewing room, which will allow visitors to attend the book signing. But remote ticket holders will have to watch the lecture from the library's Air Force One Pavilion.
