After San Antonio Trump donor Harper Huddleston was wrongly outed on Twitter for supporting President Trump, he had to go over emergency plans with his wife and children.
“We convened together as a family and talked about situational awareness, exit strategy, avoiding and exiting conflict, talked about staying low and close to home and just being at our very highest senses.”
Democratic Rep. Joaquin Castro tweeted out a list of Trump donors from the San Antonio area but Castro’s list mistakenly listed Harper Huddleston’s name instead of his retired father’s name as the correct Trump donor.
Harper Huddleston told “Fox & Friends” that the mix-up was because he and his father share the same first name, but have different middle names, though his father does not go by the name Harper.
The twist in the story came when Huddleston said he supports Trump but has also contributed to the mayoral campaign of Castro’s brother.
Huddleston said that even though he was forced to go over emergency procedures with his family, he’s glad that the attention isn’t on his elderly father.
Mark Hanrahan also spoke out about the targeting. Hanrahan begins speaking around the 20-second mark:

The New York Times reported people have harassed another person named on Castro’s list:
For many businesses, a sudden deluge of phone calls might signal an influx of new customers. But most of the 25 calls Justin Herricks received before noon on Thursday were from people who wanted to tell him he was a white supremacist for donating money to President Trump.
“I’ve had people say, ‘Hey, we were going to use you for business, but we found out you’re a racist,’” Mr. Herricks, the owner of Precision Pipe Rentals, an oil and gas services company in San Antonio, said in an interview. “‘We hope that you burn in hell and your business will go with you.’”
