Trump Makes Bombshell Announcement About His Campaign!

Trump

During a CNN Town Hall event on Tuesday night, Donald Trump refused to commit to endorsing the Republican nominee if he fails to reach the necessary delegates prior to the RNC convention!

From CNN:

Trump won’t pledge to support nominee

And he said he doesn’t care if Ted Cruz does either.

“No, I won’t,” Donald Trump said when asked if he would keep the promise to back the eventual nominee. “(Cruz) was essentially saying the same thing. He doesn’t have to support me.”

Trump repeated that he doesn’t believe he’s being treated “fairly” by the GOP and the Republican establishment.

During the same event, Trump also reaffirmed his support for campaign manager Corey Lewandowski after charges were filed against him over a physical altercation with a reporter.

From CNN:

Donald Trump on Tuesday mocked a reporter who brought simple battery charges against his campaign manager, saying she had changed her story about the incident.

At a town hall on CNN, Trump said he would not fire the aide, Corey Lewandowski, saying he stood by his people, and disputed the woman’s initial account of the incident earlier this month in which she said she almost fell to the ground

“She’s not a baby. In her own words, ‘I was jolted backwards’ … She wasn’t ‘yanked down,'” Trump said, referring to a statement made by the reporter Michelle Fields, which he said was not reflected in scenes shown on a security tape that has since emerged.

Trump alleged that Fields, who worked at the time for Breitbart News, was in fact pushing Trump as he tried to leave a press conference and was brandishing a pen, which he said could have alarmed Secret Service agents protecting him.

He said that Lewandowski had been “unjustly accused.”

“It would be so easy for me to terminate this man, ruin his life, ruin his family … and say you are fired. I have fired many people, especially on ‘The Apprentice,'” Trump told moderator Anderson Cooper. “The problem is everybody dumps people when there is a sign of political incorrectness.”

In contrast, GOP opponent Ted Cruz said earlier at the town hall that he would “of course” ask his campaign manager to resign if he were charged with battery.

“It shouldn’t be complicated,” Cruz said. “Members of the campaign staff should not be physically assaulting the press.”

He added, “I will say it is consistent with the pattern of the Trump campaign. The culture of the campaign has been a campaign built on attacks and insults.”

    I just retired from being in some form or another of Law Enforcement. I saw no behavior that would have been considered as even simple battery. The bruises she has shown to the media could not have occurred by this man simply taking control of the situation. THIS IS A SETUP. And when it is proven as false charges, I would sue her as far as I could see her!

    The Trump haters have now pulled out all the stops. Even charging his campaign manager with a crime, when all he did was grab a pushy reporter by the arm to get her away from Trump… To listen the the Cubanadian it’s almost as if he shot someone… It’s all over the mainstream, anti-Trump media as if it was a REAL story… it’s not even worthy of mention. They must have found a very, very far left Trump hating prosecutor to get this charged… All because Trump has been proven 100% correct, AGAIN…by events in Belgium and Europe with massive Muslim invasions. They have to get voters attention off of Trumps policies and astute judgement and onto the provoked responses to their out of control behavior.

    With the way the mainstream GOP has treated Trump, he has every right to not endorse any candidate except himself.. I mean the mainstream blondie boy – aka Ted-is not eligible for the office of president. Read your Constitution.

  4. Katherine says:

    Do what you need to do for us Mr. Trump! Go independent if you must you can then be the first president actually voted for and put into office by the American People!

  5. SickofPoliticks says:

    Why should he? They’ve been as underhanded and corrupt as the Dems when dealing with Trump. I don’t blame him one bit.

  6. Fannie says:

    I wouldn’t take that pledge either.. The way the GOP has treated Donald Trump…. If in the end he is still this far ahead of any other candidate… There should not be a brokered convention, and he should be the nominee…. Until then I do not support anything that the GOP wants us to do… No money is given…. No time is given…. Etc…. Trump 2016!
