Trump loses another delegate as anti-Muslim pastor 'takes one for the team'

Guy St Onge, an anti-Muslim pastor, stands down as a California Trump

The chaos over Donald Trump’s California delegation to the national convention escalated on Wednesday after a controversial, anti-Muslim pastor said he was standing down from the Republican presumptive nominee’s delegation to “take one for the team”.

Pastor Guy St Onge, who proselytizes frequently on Youtube, told the Guardian he was no longer a delegate. Onge has in the past shared social media postings appearing to advocate the killing of Muslims and last year claimed: “Barack Hussein Obama and his tranny wife Michelle hates the U.S.A.!”

St Onge, who is listed on the California secretary of state’s official list as one of three delegates pledged to Trump from California’s 35th Congressional District, declined to say precisely when he stood down. The list was formally submitted by the Trump campaign on Monday night.

However St Onge informed the Guardian of his decision to relinquish his delegate spot hours after reporters contacted the Trump campaign asking for confirmation the controversial pastor was among a colorful list of delegates, some of whom have a controversial past.
