(WASHINGTON TIMES) The Harvard Republican Club announced Thursday afternoon that “for the first time in 128 years,” the group will not be endorsing the Republican nominee for president.
In a scathing statement posted to its Facebook page, the Harvard Republican Club said Donald Trump is “a threat to the survival of the Republic” and holds views that are antithetical to the group’s values “not only as Republicans, but as Americans.”
“His authoritarian tendencies and flirtations with fascism are unparalleled in the history of our democracy,” the statement read. “He hopes to divide us by race, by class, and by religion, instilling enough fear and anxiety to propel himself to the White House. He is looking to to pit neighbor against neighbor, friend against friend, American against American. We will not stand for this vitriolic rhetoric that is poisoning our country and our children.”
