Politico reports that Donald Trump, recognizing that he may well fail to win a majority in the first ballot at the GOP Convention, is welshing on his pledge to support the eventual nominee.
Donald Trump has rescinded his pledge to support the Republican nominee for president.
Asked during a CNN town hall whether he stood by the earlier pledge â€” which he signed in September after meeting with party chairman Reince Priebus â€” Trump said: “No, I don’t.”
“We’ll see who it is,” he told moderator Anderson Cooper.
Trump said he had been treated “unfairly” by the Republican National Committee and the GOP establishment. He said he was unsure whether the Republican establishment was plotting to take the nomination away from him during the convention in Cleveland.
They have the wrong guy heading the Republican National Committee. If it were I, instead of Reince Priebus, I’d be holding a press conference this morning, announcing that Donald Trump, having repudiated his own affiliation to the Republican Party, is now ineligible to compete in any subsequent GOP primaries. And I would then just sit back and watch how Trump would like that!
