The latest update on Trump Jr. is that he will be at Grand Canyon University in Phoenix TONIGHT.
He will be accompanied by his girlfriend, Kimberly Guilfoyle and Charlie Kirk on their "culture war" tour. Their mission is to take on big government, culture, and the left. Kirk is the founder of Turning Point USA.
Turning Point USA is a nonprofit group with chapters on college campuses throughout the country. The group promotes free market capitalism and seeks to counter perceived liberal biases on campuses. On its website, the group says its mission is to "identify, educate, train, and organize students to promote the principles of freedom, free markets, and limited government."
Progressives and others, including other conservatives, have criticized Turning Point USA as racist and white supremacist, some instances of which were covered in a 2017 New Yorker piece about the group.
A student group invited Kirk and Trump Jr. and went through the university’s protocols to get the visit approved, GCU spokesman Bob Romantic said.
The event comes months after GCU came under fire from conservatives, including Kirk, for not allowing Ben Shapiro, another controversial conservative speaker, to speak on campus. GCU eventually reversed course, allowing Shapiro to speak at a relatively uneventful event in April.
