Kirk is the founder of the organization Turning Point USA (TPUSA) from which he seeks to confront the control of the left on university campuses by spreading conservative ideas in this area.
In an interview with Fox News, he referred to the recent talk given by Donald Trump Jr. at the University of Florida. The event was convened by the president of the student center. Now, however, this college student will face a challenge from leftist activists just because he invited the son of U.S. President Donald Trump to the university campus.
Kirk, who attended the event, noted that it was one of the most attended events in the history of the University of Florida. In fact, he was not surprised by the number of people who attended as Donald Trump Jr.’s recent book is No. 1 on The New York Times bestseller list.
“Unfortunately, the left at the University of Florida went on to challenge the president of the student body because he tried to bring conservative beliefs to the campus,” Kirk lamented.
This is not the first time that left-wing demonstrators have attacked conservative students.
On Wednesday night, Kirk and Lara Trump—the wife of Eric Trump, son of President Donald Trump—gave a talk titled “Cultural Warfare” on a North Carolina university campus. At the meeting, leftist activists tried to rebuke their fellow college students who wanted to participate as attendees.
During the program “Fox and Friends,” Kirk was asked if he was surprised when the attendees of the event started shouting “U-S-A.”
“Look, we’ve been doing this campus tour all over the country. (…) There’s something special going on on these campuses. Where students come and are no longer afraid to wear their MAGA cap,” the campaign slogan that led to Donald Trump’s presidency in 2016.
