GOP Strategist Pens Scathing Anti-Trump Letter to RNC Head
GOP Strategist Rick Wilson did not mince words for the party chair following the Trump campaign’s clearly offensive tweet depicting a Star of David, a pile of money and Hillary Clinton’s face.
“Someone from Trump’s team found it on 4chan’s /pol board. I know, you don’t know what that is, but run down to your digital department and ask one of the younger guys. They’ll brief you. It’s an online slum of trolling, racism, Nazi-cosplay and other things that definitely aren’t Wisconsin Nice. Their waifu are not like yours,” Wilson writes in the letter.
Wilson has remained wary of Trump through the election, and spoken out against the presumptive GOP nominee on several occasions. Last month, the strategist labeled Trump “Cheeto Jesus” with “Political Tourette’s.”
While the Trump campaign pulled the initial anti-semetic tweet, as Wilson relays, neither Trump nor anyone from the campaign has issued an apology for it.
“In a perfect world, a bold and effective party chairman with an eye to November and the future brand of the Republican Party would tell Donald Trump he’s had every chance under the Sun to improve and become more disciplined,” Wilson tells Preibus, then instructing the GOP chair: “A bold chairman would draw a bright line at his continued, deliberate, mindful flirtation with the darkest corners of the Internet. Private pressure does nothing; Trump is a creature of the media cycle and of celebrity.”
