Students For Trump Grows To Fill College Republicans’ Role On Campus
The national movement Students for Trump is growing to fill the gap left by rebelling College Republican (CR) groups in key swing states, as millions of students return to classes.
College Republicans at Harvard, Hillsdale College, Princeton, Ohio University, and others are steadily revolting against Republican nominee Donald Trump. A select group of students is drawing a line in the sand, enforcing Trump’s voice through the national group Students for Trump.
