Ad welcomes dogs but not supporters
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.”
