DSC recently hosted a breakfast that raised $60,000 for the Republican National Committee and Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump. The candidate’s son, Donald Trump Jr., served as guest speaker at the breakfast and assured the more than 150 attending DSC members that his father’s administration would advocate for hunting and sustainable use. Trump Jr. recognizes the next few years will be crucial to ensuring the future of hunters’ rights.
“The candidate’s family connection to hunting and its legacy gives DSC a huge opportunity to have the right people in place as advocates for our mission,” said Ben Carter, DSC executive director. “Also, like never before, DSC is positioned to become a strong resource to the Trump administration and promote the North American Model of Conservation as the gold standard for environmental policy.”
Trump Jr. was introduced to hunting by his grandfather. Growing up, Trump Jr. would spend a few weeks of each summer with his grandfather in the Czech Republic. Over the course of these annual trips, Trump Jr. developed a love and appreciation for wildlife and wild places.
As a big game hunter, Trump Jr. has endured the scorn from anti-hunting groups. The hunter has a great understanding of the value of wildlife and how hunting contributes to the overall health of animal populations and their habitats. Trump Jr. serves as a direct link to the Republican candidate and stands as a strong voice for hunters worldwide.
