While day-by-day presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump is racking up more support from the Republican Party, some significant conservatives are still holding out from giving support. In fact, a few GOP elite have even planned out an initiative to create a third party candidate to run against both Trump and Hillary, and some of the choices so far have been outlandish.
RNC Chairman Reince Priebus is sick and tired of this small sect of Republicans resisting to get behind Trump. When asked by Fox News what he thinks of this third party idea, Priebus stated he believes it is a “suicide mission for our country.”
“What it means is that you’re throwing down not just eight years of the White House, but potentially 100 years on the Supreme Court and wrecking this country for many generations,” Priebus said. “And so, I think that’s the legacy these folks will leave behind.”
Leading this third party effort is Gov. Mitt Romney, possibly Trump’s staunchest critic within the GOP, and conservative commentators Erick Erickson and Billy Kristol. Priebus enlightens Fox News viewers what he would say to Romney and the elite who believe this third party run is a good idea: “I think they should consider the ramifications of what’s going to happen on the Supreme Court, get assurances from Donald Trump that they’re satisfied with that would show that he’s committed to those conservative justices … and I think that’s the better way to go as opposed to this third party route.”
