On Monday, Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-TX) tweeted the names and employers of 44 San Antonio residents who donated the federal maximum to President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign.
Castro, whose district includes much of San Antonio, claimed the donors “are fueling a campaign of hate that labels Hispanic immigrants as ‘invaders.’” Castro is the twin brother of Democratic presidential candidate Julian Castro and chairs his presidential campaign, as reported by Daily Caller.
“Sad to see so many San Antonians as 2019 maximum donors to Donald Trump — the owner of @BillMillerBarBQ, owner of the @HistoricPearl, realtor Phyllis Browning, etc. Their contributions are fueling a campaign of hate that labels Hispanic immigrants as ‘invaders’”, Joaquin Castro tweeted and proceeded to name local businesses whose owners gave the maximum to Trump’s campaign.
Eleven of the 44 donors shown in Castro’s post listed their employment as “retired.”
The names and employers of campaign donors are publicly available in Federal Election Commission (FEC) filings, but publishing lists of opposing donors in the area and their places of employment, is outside the norm for members of the House of Representatives, as reported by Daily Caller.
Several Republicans teamed up to blast Castro after he posted the names of several Trump donors online, but Castro defended his tweet, left it up and said he did it so people would “think twice before supporting a guy who is fueling hate in this country.” (Continued Below)
Just days after Julian Castro’s campaign chairman posted the supporter’s personal information online, a threatening, hateful voicemail was left for a Trump supporter in Texas.
The voicemail that was left was filled with expletives, name-calling, and a threat of posting the personal phone number online.
“I see that you donated to Donald Trump. I think you’re a scumbag and I f**king despise everything you stand for. I plan on calling you and filling up your voicemail with a bunch of bullsh*t, um, so enjoy that,” the radical hater said. (Video Below)
“I will make sure to post this number all over the internet. Um… f**k you very much. F**k you for your racist bullsh*t. And f**k you for being scared of your fellow human beings. I think you’re a scumbag. It’s pretty apparent that all you do is make money off of other people’s sales of their property because you have no f**king worth of your own. Um, so… why don’t you go f**k yourself and um, have a terrible day,” the beta male whined.
Another Trump donor Joaquin Castro targeted on Twitter received 25 phone calls before noon. “We were gonna use you for business, but we found out you’re a racist. We hope that you burn in hell and your business will go with you,” they said.

Intimidation and threats are exactly what Castro wanted when he posted this target list.

Mark Hanrahan, a Trump supporter doxed by Rep. Joaquin Castro speaks out:
"America is a free country…and the notion that I'm not free to support, or think what I think, and to be bullied with slurs of racism, I think a lot of people that…support the President are tired of it," said Mark Hanrahan, a Trump supporter doxed by Rep. Joaquin Castro. pic.twitter.com/xPH2mKNrgw

Not only is Castro a sitting Dem Congressman, he’s the chair of Congressional Hispanic Caucus.
It’s dangerous, reckless and Nancy Pelosi needs to condemn it. pic.twitter.com/eIlDFcqvEA
