Donald Trump Pledges His Support to the GOP!

Donald Trump announced on Thursday that he would be pledging his support to the GOP in the 2016 Presidential election. Even if Trump does not win the nomination, he is now promising that he will support WHOEVER the eventual GOP nominee is, for President. This decision has huge (or as Trump says “Yuge”) implications on the primary fight over the coming months. We now KNOW that Trump will not run as an independent and we also know it will likely mean that once he’s pushed out of the nominating fight he will ask his supporters to cast their vote for the GOP nominee.

[RNC Chairman Reince Priebus] just left, as you probably know. And he’s been extremely fair. The RNC has been absolutely terrific over the last two-month period. 

As you know, that’s what I’ve wanted. I’ve wanted fairness. I don’t have to be treated any differently than anybody else. I just wanted fairness from the Republican Party.

We’re leading in every single poll. A new poll came out today where we’re over 30%. We’ve actually hit numbers as high as 35% and 40%. And frankly, I felt that the absolute best way to win and to beat the democrats and very easily, I think, beat the democrats no matter who it may be, whether it’s Hillary or anybody else, and I think maybe Hillary’s going to have a very hard time frankly with what’s happening getting to the starting gate. The best way for the Republicans to win is if I win the nomination and go directly against whoever they happen to put up.

And for that reason, I have signed the pledge. I will be totally pledging my allegiance to the Republican party and the conservative principles for which it stands.
