Everyone has been talking about Sen. Ted Cruz’s awesome ground game, but it’s not all his. The Bush syndicate is helping him, but I have a feeling the rug will be yanked out from under him after accomplishing the mission of preventing Trump from getting 1,237 delegates.
Donald Trump Jr didn’t hold anything about Cruz’s tactics during an interview on CNN Sunday morning. What’s awesome about the interview is how he dealt with the Jake Tapper. Americans want to see this from our leaders who are not afraid to tell the truth and rebuff the media gotcha questions.
Ted Cruz has no chance of winning the GOP presidential nomination in July without bribing delegates, Donald Trump Jr. said Sunday, and that’s something his father will never do.
“He could send his private plane and send them down to Doral, they could play golf for a week and then we win that delegate,” Trump’s son told CNN’s Jake Tapper on “State of the Union” Sunday morning. “That’s not the way this country should be run.”
“I think we’ll do some of that, I think that’s natural,” Trump said. “I think we’re going to do what we need to do to win, to a point, but I think we want to win without having to do that.”
The delegate electoral system may have made sense 200 years ago, Trump continued, “when everyone lived on a farm in the middle of nowhere. I have the Library of Congress in my iPhone. I have all the information I could possibly need. Most people have cable television and access to news. They don’t need the archaic system.”
Trump also accused the Republican National Committee of wanting to see Hillary Clinton elected rather than to allow his father to become the GOP nominee.
“They want to try to push someone else who has zero chance of winning anywhere else,” he told Tapper. “It doesn’t make any sense to me. I have to certainly question their motives.”
This is what I am talking about! Straight up answers without kicking the can down the road. Don Jr has learned from the old man how to handle the media, don’t you agree?
Do you want to know the problem with #StopTrump, #DumpTrump, #NeverTrump? Their message makes no sense. In the North East where Cruz has no chance, they are pro-Kasich. In the Midwest where Kasich has no chance they are pro-Cruz. Everyone can see the hypocrisy. You can never win unless you are focused, and you unite. They can’t even agree on if it is #StopTrump, #DrumpTrump or #NeverTrump.
Trump now has a clear path to 1,237. He is the presumptive nominee and it is time to end this silliness. It hurts the party, but more importantly it hurts the country. The StopTrump, DumpTrump or NeverTrump should just change their name to ElectHtilary, cause that’s what they are doing.
