Politico Reporter on Castro Tweeting Trump Donor Names: Trump Has Run Campaign To Target Latinos, Muslims


National political reporter for Politico Laura Barron-Lopez explained "the point" Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-TX) was trying to make when he decided to tweet out the information of Trump supporters in the San Antonio area in a panel segment on Tuesday's broadcast of 'CNN Tonight' with host Don Lemon.

LAURA BARRON-LOPEZ: I think that repeatedly -- as Ryan said, these are public. Reporters consistently will name donors in our reports and the point that Castro is trying to make is that they are supporters of Trump and the campaign that he has run since 2016. And that has been Campaign that has consistently targeted not just immigrants but Latinos as an entire community as well as other people of color from Muslim and black people.

Even while Trump just a day ago condemned white supremacy, in the White House, from his speech in the White Hous he also was still running these campaign ads that were saying invasion over and over again. And so, the question remains is whether or not Trump is going to continually condemn white supremacy and this domestic terrorism or whether or not he is going to change his rhetoric.
