There have been numerous incidents of individuals being assaulted, bullied and harassed simply due to the fact that they support Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, even when those supporters are young school students.
That is what happened to 12-year-old Colorado resident Weston Imer, who was bullied by classmates last year for supporting the GOP candidate. So he decided to respond to his tormentors the best way he could think of — by joining the campaign and working hard to help Trump win the state, according to KDVR in Denver.
Imer and his mother Laurel are now running the Jefferson County field office of the Trump campaign, and they are encouraging other students and parents to get involved in politics as well.
“You have a responsibility to your children to teach them,” his mother Laurel added.
Though young Weston will have to set aside his duties of coordinating volunteers when school resumes in September, he had no intention of setting politics aside, and was making plans of his own for the future, plans that could include another member of the Trump family.
“Watch for me — 2040,” Imer said. “And, Barron Trump, if you are watching, in 2040 I’ll take you as my running mate.”
Unfortunately, 10-year-old Barron will still be too young to meet the 35-year-old eligibility requirement in time for the 2040 election, but there is always the 2044 race to look forward to.
