Most respondents questioned why the RNC wanted them to send well wishes to a private citizen. President Donald Trump’s second son, who turns 34 on Saturday, is not a member of the administration.
He is typically in his father’s corner, however. For example, this week he appeared to accuse talk show host Ellen DeGeneres of being part of the so-called “deep state.”
