Some websites are going to try to get you to click on their story by telling you the GOP frontrunner is thinking about running as a 3rd party candidate, but that’s not what he said today in South Carolina during his speech.
Trump called out the RNC regarding the GOP debates and the tickets they have been giving out to donors who make up the audience but once again, never did Trump threaten he would go 3rd party.
From The State:
Trump suggested that the Republican National Committee was not honoring a pledge to not hurt his campaign if the businessman promised not to mount a third-party presidential run.Trump was booed several times during the Republican presidential debate Saturday in Greenville for criticizing other candidates. Trump said the debate audience was stacked with lobbyists and big Republican donors.
“I signed a pledge,” Trump said. “But the pledge is not being honored by them. … They are in default of their pledge.”
Trump, the winner of the New Hampshire primary last week, spent most of his speech to several hundred spectators going after U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz , R-Texas, his closest rival in South Carolina.
He blasted Cruz for distorting his stance on the Second Amendment during the debate. Cruz has said Trump would erode gun ownership laws if elected, while Trump calls himself the biggest gun rights advocate in the race.
“I think he’s an unstable person,” Trump said of Cruz.
Trump called Cruz a “bad liar” who stole the Iowa caucus when the senator’s volunteers spread rumors about GOP candidate Ben Carson leaving the race. Cruz won while Trump finished second.
Trump said the Iowa Republican party should disqualify Cruz’s win “if they had any guts.”
