Ad wel­comes dogs but not sup­port­ers

7 Days in Dubai - - GLOBAL NEWS -

A land­lord in the US will let dogs with good ref­er­ences live in the apart­ment he rents, but not any­one who backs Don­ald Trump.

Mark Holmes warned Trump vot­ers not to call in an ad he placed last week for the two-bed­room apart­ment that’s part of his home in Grand Junc­tion, Colorado.

The 62-year-old told The Daily Sentinel news­pa­per that he doesn’t know what to do any­more about the pos­si­bil­ity of the Repub­li­can Party fron­trun­ner be­ing elected but that he doesn’t want to live up­stairs from some­one who backs Trump.

One caller ac­cused Holmes of dis­crim­i­na­tion, but ex­clud­ing renters based on their political af­fil­i­a­tion isn’t pro­hib­ited by fed­eral law like bar­ring them based on sex or race.

Ho l m e s ’ voice­mail box was un­der­stand­ably full on Mon­day and he couldn’t be reached for fur­ther com­ment, the As­so­ci­ated Press said.

Mean­while, Trump and Hil­lary Clin­ton will seek to pad their del­e­gate leads over their un­der­dog ri­vals as the 2016 race for the White House moves West.

Ari­zona and Utah fea­ture con­tests for both par­ties, while Idaho Democrats also hold pres­i­den­tial cau­cuses. Trump and Clin­ton hope to strengthen their leads in del­e­gates that de­cide the nom­i­na­tions, as Demo­crat Bernie San­ders and Repub­li­cans Ted Cruz and John Ka­sich strug­gle to re­verse the sense of in­evitabil­ity tak­ing hold around both party front-run­ners.

“I have more votes than any­body,” Trump said as he courted scep­ti­cal Repub­li­cans. “The peo­ple who go against me should em­bra c e me.”
