Donald Trump is running on a platform of racism, hate, and dangerous intolerance. In Southeastern Wisconsin, communities are still reeling from the recent hate crime murder of neighbors for not speaking English.
As a hotel chain that insists it “doesn’t tolerate racial discrimination” in its own practices, Holiday Inn should not provide its facilities to the Trump Campaign.
But beyond his discriminatory views, his campaign events have become sites of violent attack where supporters push, shove, beat, and grab youth and people of color in the audience with Trump’s encouragement.
Offering Trump a venue endangers Holiday Inn patrons as well as area residents who are planning to protest at the event.
Holiday Inn should not be host to hate. Please cancel the event. Otherwise, it is sending a clear message to would-be patrons about where the company stands.
