New York: For the first time in 128 years, the Harvard Republican Club will not endorse the party’s presidential nominee Donald Trump for the top post, condemning his “racist and misogynistic rhetoric” and repeated “belittling” of sacrifices made by uniformed personnel. In a scathing attack on the 70-year-old leader, the Club, the oldest College Republicans chapter in the nation, said its members are “ashamed” of Trump just as President Ronald Reagan would be.
The Club called on fellow Republicans to withdraw their support to the “dangerous” man, describing him a “threat to the survival of the Republic”. Lashing out at Trump, the Club said he “simply” does not possess the “temperament and character” necessary to lead the US through an “increasingly perilous world” and in response to any “slight–perceived or real”, he lashes out “viciously and irresponsibly”.
The Club said it will not stand for his “vitriolic rhetoric” that “poisoning” the country and its children. “We call on our party’s elected leaders to renounce their support of Donald Trump, and urge our fellow College Republicans to join us in condemning and withholding their endorsement from this dangerous man.
The conservative movement in America should not and will not go quietly into the night,” the Club said in a post on Facebook. It said even as millions of people across the country are feeling despondent, their wages slashed, jobs shipped overseas, Trump does not have a plan to fix these problems but only to “exploit” them.PTI
