RNC Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel Called Out Over Trump Loyalty Demand
Written by Huffingtonpost on June 14, 2018
Ronna Romney McDaniel, chairwoman of the Republican National Committee, issued what some took to be a threat aimed at those who don’t support President Donald Trump.
Complacency is our enemy. Anyone that does not embrace the @realDonaldTrump agenda of making America great again will be making a mistake.

On the other, people on both sides of the aisle saw the tweet as a Trump loyalty test or an outright threat:
Ronna McDaniel would’ve been a hit in Jonestown.

I’m old enough to remember when Ronna Romney McDaniel spoke in a way befitting a citizen of a free republic, before Ronna McDaniel started sounding like a spokesperson for an authoritarian government. https://t.co/Z4zAl5NMSj

Does that include Mittens when he’s in the Senate? Let me get some popcorn.

Will the RNC be offering an official Trump brand so everyone can sear His name on their bodies as a sign of loyalty?

I think this tweet will come back to haunt you. Five years from now when you’re trying to rebuild your party. Trump is a moral vacuum, a black hole in the center of the universe of Republicanism.

am I to read that as a threat? If not, how am I supposed to read it?

This statement has legitimately horrified people, Ronna. You folks should get a hold of yourselves before this gets really ugly.
