In order to take part in the GOP presidential debate this week, candidates are required to sign a loyalty pledge that they will support whoever is the eventual Republican nominee. Trump, who will not be on the debate stage, has not signed the pledge.
Even if Trump does the pledge, who believes he would abide by it, if he isn’t the nominee? His motivation is do what is in the interest of Donald Trump. Doing what is good for America or the Republican Party are the last among Trump’s last concerns.
If Trump’s trials reveal beyond a doubt that he is guilty of the crimes for which he is charged, thus unworthy of being a Republican presidential nominee, why should any of his primary rivals be obliged to support him?
To be a Republican candidate you need to be dishonest or a hypocrite…ideally both.
