The political operative who orchestrates Trump’s political rallies, seen as both as hate-filled and wildly successful, is conducting a training for fellow Republicans in Colorado on Saturday.
The Trump Victory Leadership Initiative is running the workshop at the conservative Independence Institute Saturday, featuring John Pence, a senior adviser for President Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign.
John Pence is the nephew of Vice President Mike Pence and the son of Rep. Greg Pence (R-IN).
John Pence is “particularly responsible” for having “orchestrated and manufactured” campaign tactics to “stoke fear in this country,” said former White House aide and Apprentice contestant Omarosa Manigault in a July interview on MSNBC.
“I had to attend many of these rallies when I worked on the campaign and even in the White House,” continued Manigault. “There are these section leaders who start the chant, control how long the chants go and quiet them down when they want to. …
“In fact, you’ll be surprised to learn that Vice President Pence’s nephew, John Pence, is one of the big coordinators of these rallies. And so this is how closely these rallies are coordinated with also what’s going on in the White House. John Pence is a very big key player in the campaign, but he’s particularly responsible for all of the staging and choreography of the campaigns and, yes, they are very much orchestrated and manufactured to get the outcome that we saw from Donald Trump saying ‘go back to your countries that you came from and if you don’t love it, leave it.’ All of that is coordinated and manufactured to stoke fear in this country.”
The Colorado Republican Party, listed as a contact for the Pence event, did not return an email asking for specifics on the tactics Pence will teach at the workshop.
The online invitation to Saturday’s training, which is free, states that John Pence “works closely with The White House’s Office of Political Affairs and the RNC to organize the President’s political activities and grassroots recruitment initiatives.”
“We can turn Colorado Red in 2020, but only if we work together and ensure all Trump supporters are registered to vote. That’s why we need your help,” states the invitation.
