Democrat Joaquin Castro pulled a cheap political trick today when he posted the list of the 2019 maximum donors to President Trump from San Antonio on Twitter.
He’s not doing Julian, his brother who is running for president, any favors.
The response wasn’t what he expected.
Twitter is on fire right now with people from both sides of the aisle who are against the doxing of the Trump donors.
Steve Scalise tweeted back at Castro: “People should not be personally targeted for their political views. Period. This isn’t a game. It’s dangerous, and lives are at stake. I know this firsthand.”
Castro has been bombarded with people who are calling his trick “vile”. It’s hard to understand why anyone would think doing something like this is acceptable. This smacks of a threat to these private citizens who donated to our president.
Castro is also following the lie from the left that the word “invasion” is somehow hateful against “Hispanic immigrants”. When a country has over one million people trying to cross its borders in one year, that’s an invasion. The truth is that people like Castro are trying to score political points but this only hurts their cause.
Sad to see so many San Antonians as 2019 maximum donors to Donald Trump — the owner of BillMillerBarBQ, owner of the Historic Pearl, realtor Phyllis Browning, etc.
Their contributions are fueling a campaign of hate that labels Hispanic immigrants as ‘invaders.’

The comments on the tweet far outnumber the likes.
This backfired in a big way!
