Turns out Joaquin Castro exposing 44 Trump donors in his San Antonio district is proving to be quite lucrative for the Trump campaign:
DC EXAMINER – Rep. Joaquin Castro’s plan to shame a group of donors to President Trump is having the opposite effect.
One of the individuals named by the Texas Democrat estimates that the lawmaker’s actions have spurred donors to give more than $1 million toward Trump’s reelection effort in recent days.
R. H. Bowman told the Washington Examiner his fellow members of “Texas 44,” as the San Antonio-based donors refer to themselves, have been on a fundraising frenzy since Castro tweeted about them on Monday, “Their contributions are fueling a campaign of hate that labels Hispanic immigrants as ‘invaders.'”
Bowman, an attorney, said that didn’t go down well with he and his fellow donors.
“My phone’s been lit up for two days with calls from many of the Texas 44 and others of our friends here in Texas who are outraged by Castro’s comments,” Bowman said. “It looks like another million dollars is now headed to support the Trump 2020 campaign from those of us who were targeted, and other Texans, including Hispanics, incidentally, whose resolve to support [the president] is only strengthened by this personal attack.”
BOOM! A million in less than a week and I expect there will be a lot more to come. Bet Castro didn’t expect that to happen. LOL!
But an even better better outcome would be that San Antonio dumps him next year.
His brother, who is running for president, actually defended his attack on these Trump donors:
It may be public information on a website somewhere, but Castro actually compiled it in a list with employer names and then publicly tried to shame and intimidate these donors in the tweet where he published the list. Totally not ok, and for his brother to defend it so vehemently just shows how dishonest he’s being.
