Trump’s Top Communications Aide Fails to Disavow Anti-Semitic QAnon Movement

Less than 24 hours after the Republican National Convention was shamed into canceling a speaker with anti-Semitic views, Trump Campaign Communications Director Tim Murtaugh refused to fully disavow the anti-Semitic QAnon movement or Congressional candidate and QAnon believer Marjorie Taylor Greene’s invitation to the White House. 

“Donald Trump and his campaign’s refusal to speak out against the anti-Semitic QAnon movement is damning and the American people deserve better,” said Kyle Morse, an American Bridge 21st Century spokesperson. “The Trump Campaign has courted followers of the QAnon conspiracy theory for months – even including Q references in paid media and having Kayleigh McEnany interview a follower during a rally. It’s not good enough to only disavow one follower while coddling an entire movement of anti-Semites. Until Donald Trump stands up and offers a full-throated condemnation of QAnon, his silence should be viewed as an endorsement of their dangerous views.”
