In Case You Missed It: Trump Convention Speaker Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker Says ‘Legitimate Issues Raised’ with Trump Candidacy

WISCONSIN–(ENEWSPF)–July 5, 2016.  Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker announced today he will be speaking at Donald Trump’s Republican convention in a few short weeks. Yes, that same Scott Walker who said mere days ago that delegates should vote their conscience when it comes to Trump will now speak at Trump’s event. Donald Trump has spent years spouting hateful rhetoric and dangerous policies that will do serious harm to working families and put America’s security at risk. Walker acknowledged as much in his announcement today, admitting that “there have been legitimate issues raised and concerns” expressed about Trump’s candidacy. Ouch.
