Everybody in the Republican Party is making official statements denouncing Donald Trump for calling for a total ban on Muslim immigration, but the proof is in the pudding.
Tom Fitzgerald reports that Donald Trump is still a welcome guest at the PA Republican Party’s PA Society fundraiser this weekend. Sorry, not sorry:
A Democratic candidate for U.S. House and a liberal activist group said Tuesday Pennsylvania Republicans should dump Donald Trump as the speaker at a party fundraiser after the mogul proposed a “total and complete” ban on Muslims entering the U.S.
The party is standing by its man.
“Donald Trump will be the keynote speaker at our Friday fundraiser in New York,” Pennsylvania GOP spokeswoman Megan Sweeney said.
Daniel Muroff, who is challenging U.S. Rep. Chaka Fattah in the Democratic primary in the Second District in Philadelphia, and the group Keystone Progress both issued statements calling on the state GOP to dis-invite Trump, who is scheduled to appear Friday at the party’s annual fundraising luncheon during the Pennsylvania Society festivities in Manhattan.
