Ron Coleman on the biggest challenges of a new role as Donald Trump’s campaign manager: ‘You can’t make this stuff up’ October 14, 2021 October 14, 2021 admin

Donald Trump is expected to win the Republican nomination for president on Tuesday.

The presumptive nominee is the first African American to be nominated for the office in a party with an African American candidate.

It is a remarkable feat given that Trump, who has long been criticized for not being racially inclusive, is now the first candidate to win his party’s nomination for the White House without having been elected. 

Coleman, the former chairman of the Republican National Committee and chairman of a major Democratic super PAC, said he believes the real estate mogul’s election is a win for the “blue wall” and the party.

“You can say, ‘I’m a Republican, and I support Trump,’ but it’s a false choice because the blue wall is a wall that he has built,” Colemann told ABC’s This Week. 

“It’s a wall built by the white working class, the blue-collar working class.

I’m here to tell you, the Democratic Party and the white establishment in the Democratic party are not going to let that wall fall.

I mean, they’re not going back on the wall.

I’ve been saying it for a long time.

And so it’s time to be ready.”

Trump’s campaign is expected by the Democratic National Committee to make a large investment in local media operations in states that have voted to allow early voting, including New York, Maryland and Connecticut. 

A Democratic candidate, Hillary Clinton, has said she will support early voting.

Colemans comments come a day after the campaign sent a fundraising email from an online video chat service.

The email stated that in addition to supporting Democratic candidates, the campaign would continue to work to build voter contacts, build the Trump infrastructure and work with the Clinton campaign to get out the vote. 

The Trump campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Colemans experience with Trump in the early days of his campaign is similar to the role he will play as Trump’s new campaign manager.

He served as Trump ‘s vice president for the Republican Party from February to August 2015.

Coelman said he is concerned that the election will be decided on what he describes as the “dismal, racist” comments of the candidate. 

In August, he said that Trump had made racist comments to African Americans, adding that Trump “seems to be in denial about it.”

“He does not see his racism as a problem.

He does not acknowledge that it’s there.

He just does not want to deal with it,” Coelmans said.

Coelman was a prominent Trump surrogate and donor, and he has been one of the more outspoken surrogates for Trump’s candidacy.

Colette’s comments have drawn widespread criticism, with the former RNC chairman saying he believes it is inappropriate for a campaign to directly or indirectly endorse a candidate in an election.

“I’m not trying to be a political surrogate for Donald Trump, but I believe there’s an obligation on the Republican party to be open to candidates who are in sync with the American people,” Colette said in a statement.

“The GOP is in a crisis and Donald Trump cannot be a part of the solution.” 

Republican National Committee Chair Reince Priebus said in January that he believed the GOP’s primary process would be a more open contest than usual and would not require RNC members to sign loyalty pledges.
