Top Trump Adviser: RNC Should Ban Hugh Hewitt From Convention Over Criticism

Derek Hunter Contributor

Radio host Hugh Hewitt made news this week when in response to Donald Trump’s criticism of Judge Gonzalo Curiel for being biased in the Trump University civil suit because the judge is “Mexican,” he called for the GOP to dump Trump at the convention. Now the Trump campaign is striking back at Hewitt.

Hewitt said ignoring Trump’s words and actions is “like ignoring Stage IV cancer. You can’t do it. You gotta go attack it.” Hewitt advised the party change convention rules to allow delegates to select someone other than the billionaire developer to be the nominee.

Trump campaign senior adviser and director of social media, Dan Scavino, called Hewitt a “hater” and said if the radio host planned on attending the GOP convention in Cleveland “the RNC should BAN him from attending.”
