In leaked audio, a top Trump adviser said the Republican party has ‘traditionally’ relied on voter suppression

  • Leaked audio reveals a top adviser to Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign said “traditionally it’s always been Republicans suppressing votes in places” during an event for Wisconsin Republicans.
  • The senior political adviser, Justin Clark, told the Associated Press that the remarks were referring to historic, false accusations that Republicans engage in voter suppression tactics.
  • But in the recording, obtained by a liberal group and provided to the AP, Clark followed up his statement by saying “Let’s start playing offense a little bit. That’s what you’re going to see in 2020.”
  • Clark made the comments alongside a discussion of what Trump’s re-election strategy in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania will look like – a “blue wall” of states the president won in 2016.
