Just one day after CNN reported that it was Trump and his allies that were pushing for the coronation from the RNC, Dear Leader told his cult he had nothing to do with it. Here’s more on that reporting from CNN:
CNN’s Kaitlan Collins has revealed that former President Donald Trump was secretly behind the Republican National Committee’s plan to name him the presumptive GOP nominee for president, even though he publicly renounced it after it faced widespread backlash.
The Dispatch reported on Thursday afternoon that the RNC was considering a resolution to recognize Trump as its presumptive nominee despite the fact that only two primary contests have taken place so far and Nikki Haley’s continued presence in the race. The RNC historically stays neutral during the GOP presidential primary season.
Subsequently, Trump reacted to criticism of the resolution by declaring that while he “greatly” appreciated the effort, he felt, “for the sake of PARTY UNITY, that they should NOT go forward with this plan, but that I should do it the ‘Old Fashioned’ way, and finish the process off AT THE BALLOT BOX.”
But according to Collins, Trump had initially favored the measure.
As we discussed here, McDaniel broke her own rules by trying to get Haley to drop out before this latest maneuver that blew up in Trump’s face.
Here’s Trump this Saturday trying to pretend like none of that ever happened.
TRUMP: You know the Republican party wanted to nominate me and just say skip the whole thing, and we’re just going to keep you the, nomination, I said, don’t do that, don’t do that. I want to win it in a fair way. Pretty easy though because we’re leading by so much.
Proving once again that there’s nothing too large, or too small, that he won’t lie about.
Sadly, he’s right about his chances of winning the nomination, but Haley is staying in and hoping he’s convicted or dies from stress given the fact that the man looks like a walking heart attack. A conviction probably won’t make a dent with his cult and their support. It will make a difference with independents, though.
