Why is the Treasurer of the College Republicans Attacking President Donald Trump?
On June 4, 2020, President Donald Trump called out Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski in a tweet where he noted that “Few people know where they’ll be in two years from now, but I do, in the Great State of Alaska (which I love) campaigning against Senator Lisa Murkowski. She voted against HealthCare, Justice Kavanaugh, and much else…”
Trump added, “…Unrelated, I gave Alaska ANWR, major highways, and more. Get any candidate ready, good or bad, I don’t care, I’m endorsing. If you have a pulse, I’m with you!”
Ty Seymour, the College Republicans National Treasurer, responded to Trump’s tweet by saying “In a world of Trumps, be a Murkowski.”
Gavin Wax, the President of the New York Young Republicans Club, brought attention to this in a Twitter post where he comment retweeted Seymour.
This guy is the treasurer of the @CRNC . They are the official student wing of the Republican party.
Attacking our President on the GOP's dime.
Should we allow this to continue? https://t.co/BOSu8UhKAA

Seymur has been complaining about Trump in recent days and asserted that Trump continues to “abdicate leadership.”
Many Republicans are still stuck on political correctness time, wherein they can’t handle President Trump’s bluntness.
The fact that a leader within the CRs is endorsing Murkowski, one of the swampiest of Republicans, should remind us of how much work we must do to get people on the same America First page.
Hopefully people put aside their petty differences and coalesce around America First principles.
