Booker staffer demands Trump cancel rally, says it's a 'breeding ground for racism' and inspires 'white nationalist attacks'
A staffer from Democrat Senator Cory Booker's campaign is demanding that President Donald Trump cancel his next rally. The rally is scheduled in Manchester, on August 15, but this particular staffer of Cory Booker's campaign does not believe it should go on as scheduled.
Her name is Erin Turmelle and she posted the following on social media.
Two days before Cory Booker returns to New Hampshire, [President] Donald Trump is planning to hold a rally in Manchester. As we’ve seen repeatedly over the last few years, these rallies serve as a breeding ground for racism and bigotry that inspire white nationalist attacks like the one in El Paso on Saturday. They are despicable and have no place in New Hampshire, or anywhere in our country. That is why Trump must cancel this rally.

Instead, Trump should call on Congress to take meaningful action on gun legislation. If he needs ideas, Cory Booker has the boldest plan of anyone to address gun violence, including by creating a federal licensing program that evidence shows is highly effective. But he could start with the background checks passed by House Democrats in February.
What’s overwhelmingly clear is that Trump coming to New Hampshire will only stoke further dangerous acts and threaten America’s safety. Our country deserves better in the Oval Office.
In contrast, the following was posted on the Boston Herald. It was a quote from Nina McLaughlin, who is the Republican National Committee spokeswoman. She said, “While Cory Booker and 2020 Democrats scramble to politicize the tragic mass shootings, President Trump proposed commonsense, bipartisan solutions that should be taken seriously.”
Trump supporters who are looking to register tickets and attend the rally in New Hampshire were also given an update. It was New Hampshire GOP Chairman Stephen Stepanek who stated that there is no chance the event will be canceled. Specifically, he said, “There will be absolutely no even thought given to canceling the rally. I’ve been to many rallies and never seen any sign of bigotry and hatred at the rallies, just enthusiastic people who are looking to support the president."
It's unclear if Cory Booker will continue to pressure Trump into canceling his own events.
