TRUMP’S TEA PARTY CON­NEC­TION

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

An in­ter­est­ing hire: Don­ald Trump has hired a na­tional cam­paign spokes­woman by the name of Ka­t­rina Pier­son a for­mer con­gres­sional can­di­date in the great state of Texas. In ad­di­tion, Ms. Pier­son was a steer­ing com­mit­tee mem­ber for the Dal­las Tea Party, founder of the Gar­land Tea Party, a mem­ber of the Texas Tea Party Cau­cus Ad­vi­sory Board and a con­sul­tant in her own right.

Ac­cord­ing to the Trump cam­paign, she is also a “pas­sion­ate ad­vo­cate for free­dom’ and a heavy­weight on state and fed­eral bud­gets, civil lib­er­ties, com­mu­nity or­ga­niz­ing, and health care.

“Ka­t­rina un­der­stands the need for real change in Wash­ing­ton, D.C. and the im­por­tance of com­pe­tence in the next elec­tion,” says Mr. Trump him­self.

Mean­while, Repub­li­cans trust the bil­lion­aire the most when it comes to im­mi­gra­tion is­sues. Half of the GOPers say Mr. Trump is best qual­i­fied to take on the border chal­lenges, with Sen. Marco Ru­bio at a very dis­tant 11 per­cent, fol­lowed by Sen. Ted. Cruz at 6 per­cent. So says a new YouGov poll, which also found that 63 per­cent of Repub­li­cans agree with Mr. Trump’s as­sess­ment:”When Mex­ico sends its peo­ple, they’re not send­ing their best. They’re send­ing peo­ple that have lots of prob­lems.” char­ac­ter — would make him one of the most in­spir­ing Amer­i­cans ever to oc­cupy the Oval Of­fice. But he’s a direct threat not just to left­ist nar­ra­tives re­gard­ing race and class but also to the left­ist stran­gle­hold on the black vote,” Mr. French notes.

“If re­cent history is any guide, the Left’s at­tempt to strike down Car­son will only make him stronger. The me­dia can launch its at­tacks, but it can­not change the fun­da­men­tal facts: Ben Car­son is a good and de­cent man, an Amer­i­can hero.”
