Granderson: The ‘election police’ don’t need to be right to be effective https://t.co/KH8cGX8xLNpic.twitter.com/c3hAuGQIjW — RT (@RT_com) October 9, 2016
The campaign was also criticized for allegedly using violence against protesters. In one video, a protester is seen being beaten by a group of masked men dressed in black, one of whom says, “If you do not vote for Trump, your child will be raped.”
While the campaign did not deny the claim, Trump’s campaign did not condone acts of violence or use “violence or threats of violence against individuals or groups of people,” as the campaign claims it did. In fact, there are no allegations that the campaign used violence against protesters, only allegations that they did not.
In response to the criticisms, the campaign issued a statement saying, “We appreciate the support of the community and its desire to express its opinions.” In the statement, the campaign added that, “Violence is never appropriate and is never condoned.”
However, the campaign denied that it is now suspending all of its support of the Trump campaign.
“The Trump campaign and our Republican National Committee are committed to making our country safe – and we won’t stop fighting to build our campaign on the foundation of our values,” Trump’s campaign team told CNN.
