Washington, DC — The Republican National Committee announced Thursday it is launching a digital campaign to encourage congressional Republicans to speak out against the President and his policies, citing a growing number of people calling out his divisive rhetoric and the threats that his presidency poses to the country.
The digital campaign, dubbed “Trump’s Dangers,” will be led by former House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, and former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, who both endorsed Trump for president last year.
It will be available to both users and registered voters, and the RNC says it will be distributed on mobile devices and other devices.
In a statement, RNC chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said: “We are at a crossroads and it’s time for us to take a stand.
It’s time to speak truth to power and stand up for what we believe in.”
The digital effort comes as House Speaker Paul Ryan, R, Wis., has been pushing for Trump to resign as President, arguing that he’s not a fit for the job.
But the Republican National Convention is in a week when the President is scheduled to address a joint session of Congress.
On Thursday, McDaniel and her fellow RNC chairmen, Reps.
Steve King, R., Mo., and Steve Stockman, R.-Texas, will host a public meeting with Trump supporters in Washington.
The RNC’s digital campaign will also feature a webinar on Wednesday in which House Speaker Joe Barton, R. Texas, and Sen. Mike Lee, R..
Utah, will talk about how they will support the President’s agenda.
“The President has a very high level of approval in the Congress, which means that a majority of Americans support his policies,” McDaniel told The Hill.
“If we can demonstrate to our members that they are committed to working together to ensure our nation’s future, then it will strengthen our resolve to make the most of the opportunities that we have ahead.”
