I’m not “making claims” that Trump campaign allies are holding events in Black communities to hand out envelopes of cash.

I’m quoting the actual reporting ⬇️

While those responsible for this shadowy behavior will claim that it is legally above board, the fact of the matter is that it’s insulting and wrong.

They may not be legally registered as “campaign events” or rallies, but it should be clear to all what is going on.

“Allies of Trump have begun holding events in black communities where organizers lavish praise on Trump as they hand out 10s of 1000s of dollars to lucky attendees.”

GOP will hop on me over the legal definition of a rally to distract from this garbage. They’re so predictable. 🙄

You can follow @AOC.
