A “super PAC” will be used by US presidential candidate Donald Trump’s campaign to help with the US election and to “educate” Australians about the Republican candidate’s stance on immigration, the campaign’s Australian chief executive has said.
“I think the campaign is going to be very interesting to Australians because there is a big, big gulf between what Mr Trump is saying in his campaign and what the Australian people are hearing and reading,” Donald Trump spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham told AAP.
In a recent interview, Mr Trump told The Washington Post that his plan to build a wall on the US border with Mexico would be funded by a $100 billion investment in infrastructure.
But Mr Trump’s proposal has been repeatedly rejected by his fellow Republicans, who argue the US could never afford the wall.
Mr Trump’s plan has been rejected by fellow Republicans Mr Trump has repeatedly rejected his plan has also been rejected, but his campaign is now focusing on the idea of investing $100bn in infrastructure, which he has described as the “single biggest economic program in the world”.
Mr Grishan said the campaign was using “some of the biggest corporations in the country” to push the Trump agenda, which included “a plan to create jobs” and a plan to bring back “our jobs”.
“We’re going to use some of the largest corporations in Australia and the world to push Donald Trump to do the right thing,” she said.
