Donald Trump continues to enjoy a commanding lead over his GOP rivals. As candidates drop out, it is becoming more likely that Trump will be the Republican nominee.
In a few weeks, voters will flock to the polls to cast the very first primary ballots.
One of the first decisive states in the battle is Iowa. One local university recently welcomed GOP candidates Ron DeSantis, Nikki Haley, and Vivek Ramaswamy. But they suddenly canceled an upcoming event with Donald Trump. And now, a post might reveal why.
From The Post Millennial:
A Trump campaign event scheduled to take place at Iowa’s Dordt University, a private evangelical Christian school, on January 5 is reportedly no longer taking place after the school’s administration canceled the event contract…
Dordt Chief of Staff and Dean of Chapel Aaron Baart has been a vocal critic of Trump, reportedly posting in June of 2016 a photo of his children pretending to vomit in front of Trump Tower.
Dordt University recently hosted events with several Republican candidates for president. But its upcoming event with Donald Trump was suddenly canceled. One source claimed the Trump campaign canceled the event.
However numerous sources revealed that it was the school’s decision. There appears to be no clear reason for the change. It has come to light, however, that the school’s chief of staff and dean of the chapel, Aaron Baart, is a vocal anti-Trumper.
He even once posted a photo of his children pretending to vomit outside Trump Tower. He wrote that although they can’t vote “their political sentiments are strong.” It hasn’t been confirmed if Baart had a say in canceling Trump’s appearance. But supporters will surely considering he had a hand in it.
Trump previously held an event at the school during the 2016 Election. It drew a large crowd of both supporters and opponents. At the time of writing, the event was still listed on Trump’s campaign website. But it might be changed or moved to another location.
