Reince Priebus, aka Pasty McDoughboy, and the RNC, are circulating a loyalty pledge among the field of GOP presidential hopefuls, asking them to pledge their loyalty to whichever candidate wins the nomination. Obviously, since all the candidates except Trump pledged their support by show of hands during the first debate, this move is clearly aimed at Donald Trump.
So, just what does the RNC have up its sleeve? Are they trying to force Trump to agree to a pledge that he has already refused? What will they do when he doesn’t sign, ban him from future debates? I wonder if they are prepared for the grass roots revolt that will ensue from such a stupid maneuver?
What will The Donald do? Will he simply refuse to sign the pledge? Will he alter the language to suit himself, then sign and return it? What will Trump do if he is banned from future debates? Go third party?
Washington (CNN)Donald Trump will meet with Republican Party chairman Reince Priebus Thursday in New York City, one day after party officials began circulating a loyalty pledge that looked squarely aimed at the Republican front-runner.
Trump spokeswoman Hope Hicks confirmed the meeting to CNN. Trump also announced that he will have a 2 p.m. news conference at Trump Towers Thursday.
The Republican National Committee had quietly circulated a loyalty pledge to the Republican presidential candidates, requesting they affirm their allegiance to the party.
