A Young Republican official announced on Monday evening that she is resigning her national position over what she calls the “racist, hateful, fascist” party of Donald Trump.
“I can no longer continue to carry out the duties of this position,” Katrina Elaine Jorgensen wrote on Facebook, announcing that she was resigning as the national communications chair for the Young Republicans. “My principles will not allow it.”
“We have been told for years how we are the future of the party, this is our opportunity to seize that future,” added Jorgensen, who also heads the Young Republicans of South Carolina. “But if we have instead decided to uphold a man who does not represent us or our views — a man that has belittled war heroes, explicitly stated misogynist beliefs, relied on intimidation of minorities, insulted our international allies, rewarded violence, championed divisive rhetoric and proved completely uneducated in conservative fiscal policy — I cannot participate in that.”
