Establishment GOP Against Trump
Trump Still Undeterred
‘Does it have to be unified?’ Defiant Trump says he can win WITHOUT backing of Republican leaders and says party doesn’t need to show united front
- Donald Trump told George Stephanopoulos on Saturday that he can become president without his party’s backing
- Trump says he can win the election by ‘getting millions of people’ from Bernie Sanders and Democrat voters
- Told off Paul Ryan, who is wavering on backing him, by saying he didn’t ‘inherit’ the party, he won it with millions of votes
There may be much Republican hand-wringing over Donald Trump‘s presumptive nomination to face against his Democratic challenger to the White House, but the boastful billionaire says he doesn’t care, and it doesn’t matter.
A growing chorus of senior Republican leaders have joined the ‘anyone but Trump movement,’ including 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney and the last two Republican presidents, George W. Bush and George H.W. Bush.
‘Does it have to be unified?’ Trump asked George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s This Week about the Republican Party. ‘I’m very different than everybody else, perhaps, that’s ever run for office. I actually don’t think so.’
