Surprise, surprise: the contract that Donald Trump's volunteers have to sign is wholly unreasonable and stands in contrast to the First Amendment (the Constitutional revision that Trump depends on to be able to say the things he does). The Daily Dot reviewed the full six-page contract on Monday and found a laundry list of legally untenable restrictions forced upon anyone who signs the document (which the publication saw dozens do during their time at at Trump's NYC headquarters).
Beyond the non-disparagement agreement's preventing volunteers "from criticizing the Republican presidential front-runner, his family members, any Trump businesses or products, or his campaign," it demands Trump campaign workers prohibit "their employees from criticizing Trump, thus making volunteers responsible for the free speech of others" and is worded so that the contract "theoretically lasts for the entirety of a volunteer's life."
A New York employment lawyer, Davida Perry, told The Daily Dot the obligations required by the contract are "shocking."
He's apparently so afraid that people would say something bad about him after spending some time on his campaign that they have to sign some sort of agreement. I don't see how this stands up. I don't see how a court enforces this.
A court full of judges appointed by President Trump might.
The man who's supposedly unafraid to tell it like it is (political correctness be damned!) seems wildly anxious about being told like it is (but don't say bad stuff about me!). This contract puts Trump's paranoia on full display, which makes sense given the increasing hostility he's been feeling at his rallies.
