Donors urging Republicans to drop Trump


WASHINGTON, D.C.: Some of the Republican Party’s biggest financial donors have urged its national committee to drop Donald Trump in the wake of accusations he sexually assaulted women, The New York Times reported. In a further sign the Republican presidential candidate’s free-falling campaign is sowing deep divisions within a party in crisis, the paper quoted some of those who have given millions of dollars to Republicans as saying the scandal surrounding the real estate billionaire threatens the party with lasting damage unless it repudiates him. “At some point, you have to look in the mirror and recognize that you cannot possibly justify support for Trump to your children – especially your daughters,” Missouri businessman David Humphreys told The New York Times, which said he contributed more than $2.5 million (2.3 million euros) in the last four years. “He is a dangerous demagogue completely unsuited to the responsibilities of a United States president,” New York investor Bruce Kovner said in an email to the daily.
