Penn State’s NAACP Chapter Set to Debate Penn State Students for Trump Wednesday

Penn State’s Chapter of the NAACP is hosting ‘The Debate’ with the Students for Trump Club.

Penn State’s chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) announced that they will hold a debate with Penn State’s Students for Trump Club this Wednesday in 158 Willard.

The NAACP listed their reasons for the debate in a press release:

“We are exhausted by the divisive rhetoric of Donald J. Trump and we wish to have an intellectual discussion about some of his policy positions, especially in reference to the minority community in this country and at our University. Since we cannot access Mr. Trump himself, we wish to do so with the SFT [Students For Trump].”

The debate will feature questions and be moderated by the Political Science Association along with questions from the audience and distinguished guests such as various Political Science professors at Penn State.

Issues that are set to be discussed revolve around immigration foreign policy, violence at rallies, Donald Trump’s tax plans, social policies (guns, abortions, healthcare, college tuition), campaign finance and discourse as well as the proposed ban on Muslims in America.

The debate is set for Wednesday, April 13 at 5:45 p.m. in 158 Willard. Feel free to visit the debate’s Facebook event page for more information.
