Happy Valentines Day (Except If You’re A Trump Supporter)
Ahead of Valentine’s Day, Campus Reform Digital Reporter Eduardo Neret went to Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. to ask students about dating someone with opposite political beliefs.
Many students said they would not date someone with opposite political beliefs and explained that one’s political views are a reflection of values. Some even went as far as to say they wouldn’t date a supporter of President Donald Trump.
“Honestly, if they’re just overall Trump supporters,” one student answered when asked which factors she considered when choosing not to date someone.
“If they were a Trump supporter, I don’t think I could date them ‘cause I feel like in my opinion that shows a little bit about their character,” a different student added.
Other students mentioned being “pro-life” and being “on the build the wall side” as reasons to not date another individual.
“I think at some point your political views could mean you’re a bad person,” one student also said.
However, a few students disagreed.
“I think just because you disagree on some topical political issues doesn’t mean you have a radically different set of values,” another student said as he explained why he would date a person with different political beliefs.
