Senior GOP Senator Gets Disinvited To GOP Event For Voting Against Trump’s National Emergency

By

Some RINOs are getting a major blowback for not having the backbone to support President Trump.

Senator Roy Blunt (R-Mo) was disinvited to a GOP dinner for being unsupportive of President Trump’s national emergency.

From The Hill:

A Missouri county GOP committee disinvited Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) to a dinner event next month, citing his recent vote against President Trump’s emergency declaration to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.

Blunt joined 11 Senate Republicans, and all Democrats, in voting to block the declaration, prompting the Christian County Republican Central Committee to rescind his invitation to the local GOP’s Lincoln/Trump Day Dinner, scheduled for April 6 in Ozark.

“I am so disappointed in you now that I can hardly speak,” Wanda Martens, the party committee’s events chairwoman, wrote in an email to Blunt’s office obtained by The Kansas City Star. “Why could you not support my president in the emergency declaration? President Trump tried every available means to work the Senate to resolve the border issue and build the much needed wall. He is well within his presidential powers to do this.”

Blunt’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
