Donald Trump said Tuesday that he would no longer honor his pledge to support the eventual Republican nominee for president, while fellow candidates Ted Cruz and John Kasich refused to say whether they would back the party's pick.
When asked if he would keep the pledge he signed last September, Trump responded "No, I won’t." The real estate mogul explained that he was taking back the pledge because, "I have been treated very unfairly," and listed the Republican National Committee and party establishment among those he believes have wronged him.
I can't believe anybody ever really thought Trump WOULD back the GOP candidate if he lost the nomination. When has there been ANY evidence that Donald Trump handles losing gracefully?
Of course now one cannot help but reflect back on the claims from Trump's former strategist who stated that Trump really does not want to win this thing, and perhaps this is yet another attempt at self sabotage.
And perhaps the self immolation is finally working as Trump's popularity is taking a significant nosedive as of late.
However having watched these ups and downs for a while now my attitude is that I will believe Trump is over when I see that Trump is over.
