Students for Trump Co-Founder Ryan Fournier Charged with Assault

Students for Trump co-founder Ryan Fournier was charged with assault, according to a new report.

Fournier, 27, was accused of assaulting a woman identified as his girlfriend on Nov. 21, according to the police report.

"He was charged with domestic assault on a female and assault with a deadly weapon," Axios reported.

"He posted bond later that evening and waived his right to an assigned attorney. His next hearing is scheduled for Dec. 18. The victim suffered a minor injury, according to a police report," it added.

"Fournier is the chairman of Students for Trump, which he co-founded in 2015 when he was a freshman at Campbell University, according to his website," CNN noted.

"Fournier also heads Radical Alert, which claims it 'is watching and exposing' what it calls 'radicals' who have 'taken over American college campuses,' the organization’s website says," it continued.

The political organization cofounder was reportedly released on a $2,500 bond the same day.

The Campbell University graduate's arrest comes as former President Donald Trump faces his own legal battles on multiple fronts.

Trump is currently awaiting the outcome of his New York fraud trial. He is also awaiting trials in Florida, Georgia, and Washington as he seeks a return to the White House in the 2024 election.

So far, the former president continues to poll far ahead of his GOP contenders, shaping up to what could be a controversial rematch with President Joe Biden next year.
