Trump: I’ll run as a third-party candidate if the GOP keeps being ‘unfair’ to me

Along with Donald Trump’s narcissism is a HUGE persecution complex. This complex extends to the Republican Party, despite his pledge to stand with them. Now, he is warning them if they keep being “unfair,” to him, he’ll make the case for a third party run, thus splitting the party and handing the 2016 election to the Democrats.

“I signed a pledge but it’s a double-edge pledge, and as far as I’m concerned they’re in default of the pledge,” Trump said.

While rallying his supporters in South Carolina on Saturday, Trump warned that “lobbyists and donors” were controlling his fellow GOP presidential candidates, and that much of the audience was against him due to “special interests.”

Those tickets were all special interest people. I know ’em.”

The Republican National Committee responded to Trump’s threats and accusations of their breaching the pledge, declaring that the “language of the pledge is pretty straightforward.”

They maintain that the pledge in question “simply states the candidates pledge to run as a Republican and support the nominee. Nothing more and nothing less,” adding that Trump’s threats and accusations are nonsense, even going so far as to say that the candidates themselves controlled the debate audience.

“Each candidate received 100 tickets which is the largest amount so far. The candidates as a whole were the largest group of ticket holders,” the RNC said in a statement.

Trump doubled down, saying that he recognized people in the audience, and that they were mocking him:

“He’s going ‘boo, boo!’ And he’s waving at me. They’re booing me because they’re having fun!”

“I’m saying this is crazy! But I know many of these people. That was a wealthy room.”

Grab your popcorn, folks.

    If Donald Trump decides to run as an Independent, it will be the same as if he had plunged a knife into the heart of the Republican Party.
    God is good INDEED.

    Don’t be overconfident about a split GOP helping the Democrats, Sanders supporters are the same breed of fanatics who supported Ralph Nader and still can’t acknowledge that they effectively elected George W. twice. The danger of them splitting the party against Hillary is very real, and of the toxicity of his SJW supporters sending moderates to the right. Trump is only allowing us to break even, but the danger is still very real.

    I am an old Vietnam vet, intially, I thought Clinton an “okay” choice, not a fanatic either way. I am sick and tired of the status quo, stuffing the pockets of the donors that essentially purchase politicians positions and expect returns for the investment. Its not fanatical, its time to elect a replacement for ALL of that status quo rotten nonfunctioning crowd that are elected via large dirty money, the wealthy investors. Follow the money and you will find who is supporting them. Sanders is getting his finance from people. P Lang, you can either get on it or be angry. The Supreme Court elected Cheney. Bush was a standin for a regime of old timers bought and paid for by the same people that are paying for Clinton, big money PACS. As for the Repubs, sickens me that they have devolved to a name calling group of idiots, even children in a debate club have more decorum, and these people want to lead the country, how embarrassing. I predict record numbers of young votes, mostly independant and Dems.
