Breaking up is hard to do… or not
Seems like mere months ago, Donald Trump was cozying up with the Republican Party, signing pledges, and promising to support the eventual nominee.
But that was September.
The Donald has since had a change of heart.
Politico reported Trump’s response Tuesday’s CNN town hall:
Donald Trump has rescinded his pledge to support the Republican nominee for president.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 — which he signed in September after meeting with party chairman Reince Priebus — 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.
He also said he didn’t need Ted Cruz to promise to support him should Trump win the nomination.
“I’m not asking for his support,” Trump said.
“I don’t want his support; I don’t need his support; I want him to be comfortable,” Trump said, taunting Cruz for dancing around the issue of whether he would support Trump if Trump were the nominee.
