A video by Trump organization executive Lynne Patton called “the Trump Family That I Know” has gone viral on YouTube with almost three million hits to date.
In the five-minute video, the loyal, seven-year Trump employee reads a heartfelt letter about the GOP presumptive nominee and his family, which she says she wrote and released to social media without their approval or knowledge.
“Rest assured I am a highly intelligent, free-thinking and independent woman. My opinions and decisions are based solely on fact, not fiction, speculation, assumption, or hearsay,” she declared.
Watch the video below and draw your own conclusions about its message.
After reeling off victories in West Virginia and Nebraska last night, obviously expected since his two remaining GOP rivals out of the original 16 have suspended their campaigns, the New York real estate mogul has 1,134 delegates to the Republican National Convention, needing just 103 to officially clinch the nomination.
According to Patton, “This country has spoken; my boss has justly earned the Republican nomination and broken voter registration records in countless states across America. This cannot be denied.”
Rightly or wrongly, many Democrats, the #neverTrump GOP establishment, pro-Ted Cruz conservative journalists, and others seem to have convinced themselves — at least based on their public commentary — that Trump has no chance of winning against Hillary Clinton, who is currently favored to win her party’s nomination for president while still fending off a strong challenge by Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.
The gender gap is often cited as one of the reasons why Trump will lose in the November 2016 general election.
Contrary to conventional wisdom perhaps, the latest Reuters national tracking poll has Trump and Hillary Clinton in a virtual election tie. A new Quinnipiac University poll claims that Trump leads Clinton in Ohio and in a dead heat in two other swing states, Florida and Pennsylvania.
Late last month, a George Washington University battleground poll suggested that Donald Trump had pulled to within three points of Clinton. About a week ago, Rasmussen issued a poll that showed the New York real estate mogul with a two-point national lead over Clinton.
Lynne Patton is the director of The Eric Trump Foundation which, according to its website, is dedicated to raising money for children battling life-threatening diseases at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. As part of her job duties, Patton is an assistant to Eric Trump, Ivanka Trump, and Donald Trump Jr., the presidential hopeful’s three oldest children.
In the video narration, Lynne Patton makes her feelings clear about Donald Trump and his family as well as several of the political policies that he has put forward in the campaign.
“…As a black female executive at the Trump organization, I can no longer remain silent about the repeated and reprehensible attempts to align my boss and his family with racist hate mongering groups, campaigns, and messaging,..The Trump family that I know is, without question, one of the most generous, compassionate, and philanthropic families I’ve ever had the privilege of knowing and the honor to call friends.They have been incredibly loyal to me and to the countless dedicated people they employ around the world – hiring more minority and female executives than any other company for which I’ve ever worked.”
“To equate racism with my boss’ call for a temporary moratorium on a flawed immigration system that radical Islamic terrorists continue to exploit, or the construction of an impassible wall to protect our borders from the influx of illegal drugs, is not only incendiary, it’s wholly irresponsible and only serves to embolden the very hatred these draconian groups espouse. What common-sense American wants another terrorist attack on our soil?”
Do you agree or disagree with Lynne Patton in the sentiments that she expresses in the video about the Donald Trump and his family?
