    “Could no longer stomach it”: VA GOP Leader Abruptly Resigns over Trump’s Oval Office Slurs
    DPVA Chairwoman Calls on RPV’s Whitbeck to denounce President for racist rant

    Richmond, VA – DPVA Chairwoman Susan Swecker praised VA GOP Central Committeeman Kyle McDaniel’s decision to leave the Republican Party in protest of President Trump recently referring to Latin American and African nations as “shithole” countries.

    “Today, at last, someone in the Republican Party of Virginia found the courage to stand up to our racist President. While Central Committeeman McDaniel’s decision to take a stand against hate and leave the GOP is commendable, RPV Chairman John Whitbeck’s refusal to condemn the President for his damaging slurs shows more and more that the cowardly leadership of the Republican Party exists merely to follow the marching orders of Bigot-in-Chief Donald Trump.”

    Chairwoman Swecker further called on RPV Chairman John Whitbeck to find a moral compass and denounce the President for his comments.

    “Chairman Whitbeck should immediately come forward and denounce the President for demeaning and disparaging millions of people around the world. If he can not or chooses not to do so, he should expect many more members of his party to follow Mr. McDaniel out the door.”

    It’s not like this is the first time Trump has been a racist ***hole.
