Top GOP Donor Demands the Increasingly-Popular Trump Be Excluded from Debates

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]For years, citizens on the left and the right have clamored for politicians to “tell us the truth.”

Donald Trump has done that by shining a light on the destructive consequences of illegal immigration. And for that bold act of candor, he has been crucified.[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]Still, The Donald is holding strong in poll after poll as people respond to the no-nonsense approach that has lost Trump promotional deals, but has delighted grassroots conservatives who are tired of establishment politicians ducking and dodging on important issues.

However, not all are pleased as trump continues to challenge moderate candidates like Jeb Bush for supremacy in the polls. As such, one of the GOP’s top donors has demanded that Trump be excluded from the GOP debate.

Because nothing says “open to new ideas” like systematically excluding those who are preaching what should be the Republican stance on illegal immigration.

Fox News will be hosting the debate on August 6th in Cleveland, Ohio, and will include the top ten Republican contenders as defined by “an average of the five most recent national polls in the run-up.”

As trump consistently ranks in the upper-tier, it’s likely he will be included.

The Associated Press reports:

Trump stood firm on his comments about immigrants, saying earlier Monday “the Mexican government is forcing their most unwanted people into the United States,” and “criminals, drug dealers, rapists” are among them. He said “many fabulous people” come from Mexico and the U.S. is better for them, but this country is “a dumping ground for Mexico.”


Republican donor John Jordan said Monday that GOP leaders should take steps to block Trump’s access to the first presidential debate in early August…


“Someone in the party ought to start some sort of petition saying, ‘If Trump’s going to be on the stage, I’m not going to be on there with him,'” Jordan told the AP on Monday. “I’m toying with the idea of it.”


“It’s something I feel strongly about as somebody who not only cares about the Republican Party, but also Latinos,” Jordan said.

No, not all illegal immigrants are rapists and murderers, but the fact is that we have no way of knowing who is coming into our country.

Further, the very act of illegal immigration is, as the name would suggest, illegal. How is it that Republicans are seeking to condemn a man who merely insists that law and order be sustained and that potential criminals not be allowed to roam the streets of America illegally?[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
