Now that Trump is on a path to win the GOP nomination, establishment Republicans are now rallying around Hillary Clinton to defeat both Donald Trump and his main challenger, Senator Ted Cruz.
Congressman Rep. Steve King (R-IA) appeared onBreitbart News Daily Tuesday morning to support Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) in today’s crucial primary elections and to warn that the GOP Establishment is determined to punish Trump and Cruz supporters, and they could even tacitly get behind Hillary Clinton as someone “they can do business with” if Cruz or Trump wins the nomination.
“We’re going to have something like 70 percent of the vote that comes in here today, and they’re going to be anti-Establishment votes,” King noted, describing the 2016 primary as a “revolt against the Establishment in the Republican Party.”
He said he’s felt the wrath of the Establishment himself, despite striving to give them everything they claim to desire in conservative policies, such as low taxation and regulatory relief.
The problem, said King, is that he gives them more than they really want, such as “pro-life, pro-marriage, pro-Constitution, pro-real free enterprise, and an American culture and civilization that pulls itself up by its bootstraps, and grows its GDP on a per-capita basis average.”
Ironically, the Establishment’s political and policy failures leave it on the precipice of making a choice between Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, who are likely to be the only candidates left standing after the next two big primary days. “They’re gonna be thinking: lesser of two evils, what shall we do?” King chuckled.
Unfortunately, as he went on to note, it was no laughing matter that “they may decide they can do business with Hillary, and they might take their big bucks and go home.” He thought some Establishment figures and their supporters might actively support Clinton against their own party’s nominee, if it turned out to be Trump or Cruz.
