The GOP and Trump

Listen 00:48:42

Guests: Alan Novak, Charlie Gerow, Charlie Dent

Donald Trump has been making, and doubling down, on some incendiary remarks since announcing his candidacy for the Republican nomination for President of the United States. His statements, particularly regarding undocumented immigrants, have drawn much criticism from many, including his business associates, but his fellow Republican candidates have remained relatively mum. Today, we’ll talk with some GOP party leaders about Donald Trump’s presidential bid, and how the Republican party should react to Trump’s brash and inflammatory rhetoric. We’re joined by ALAN NOVAK, attorney and former chairman of the Pennsylvania Republican Party. We’ll also hear from CHARLIE GEROW, Republican political consultant with Quantum Communications.  And, Republican Congressman CHARLIE DENT will join us to give us his thoughts on Trump’s candidacy.
