Trump And The RNC: ‘Liberals Choose Illegals Over You’

The Republican National Committee sent an email to supporters on Friday morning with the subject line, “Liberals choose illegals over you.”

The email, a letter from President Trump, seems to confirm reports that Trump and his advisers believe that brutal border policies and divisive rhetoric on immigration can make for a winning strategy for Republicans in the 2018 midterms:

Democrats are willing to fight for ANYONE illegally crossing our border. But they too often refuse to fight for their own fellow American citizens who voted to Make America Great Again!

Too many on the Left push a message of anger, resistance, and violent rhetoric.

Our movement is about prosperity, security, and love for America.

Now let’s show the media and the Democrats how much love our movement has by making our end-of-quarter fundraising report our best one in HISTORY. Can I count you to make a grassroots contribution?
