As the GOP seeks to unify around him, Donald Trump has other plans.
According to a Bloomberg report, Trump is looking to end the political careers of Ted Cruz and John Kasich.
The plan would involve Trump investing millions of his own money –perhaps $20 million or more — in one or two outside groups about six months before their respective election days if Texas Senator Cruz or Ohio Governor Kasich stand for office again. The source said Trump is willing to set up two separate super-PACs – one for Cruz and one for Kasich – and put millions into each.
It’s interesting to note (not that this will shock you), that Trump has never put up this kind of money to defeat a Democrat before. As a former Democrat donor himself, it is not shocking that Trump is out to kill those in the Republican Party that refuse to buy into his charade.
It is also telling about Donald’s character. The man is so controlled by his own ego that he cannot fathom someone refusing to bow down at the feet of Cheeto Jesus.
The report continues, adding:
The source close to Trump’s thinking indicated that Trump would consider forming the super-PAC whether or not he wins the presidential election in November. According to Federal Election Commission rules, if Trump doesn’t win the presidency, he is clearly free to set up and fund a super-PAC. But if he occupies the Oval Office, the rules head into a legal gray area. Between elections, or if Trump declares himself a one-term president, he would be allowed to donate to a super-PAC, but is not allowed to solicit contributions of more than $5,000.
The longer this election cycle goes on, the “conspiracy” that Trump is only in this to help his friend Hillary Clinton by destroying the GOP seems to be less and less ludicrous. It is clear Donald Trump has no intention of winning, now he is just bringing the rest of the party down with him.
