People leave the Republican Party – level 1

13-05-2016 07:00

Republicans are a group in politics in the USA. Ted Cruz, John Kasich, and Donald Trump are Republicans. They want to be the next president of the USA. The Republican Party must choose one presidential candidate.

Trump is doing better than Cruz and Kasich. Cruz and Kasich stop their campaigns. Trump becomes the candidate if they stop their campaigns completely.

People are not happy about this. They do not want Trump to be the candidate. They protest. They leave the Republican Party. They burn their Republican Party membership cards.

Difficult words: candidate (a person who people choose to try to become the president), campaign (to try to run to get a job in power), continue (if you continue to do something, you do not stop doing it), membership card (a card which says that you are a member of a group).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
