On Saturday, Donald Trump claimed the money he’s been collecting at his recent fundraisers is going to the Republican Party, but also threatened to cut the GOP off if support from the party wavers.
“Right now I’m raising a lot of money for the Republican Party, and a lot of beneficiaries to that, and I like doing it,” Trump said. “Life is like a two-way street, right? They have to [help], otherwise I’ll just keep doing what I’m doing, I’ll just keep funding my own campaign…for me, that’s the easy way.”
As Trump’s candidacy has been problematic for some conservatives in the GOP, a group of Republican delegates in Colorado are moving forward with a plan to oust Trump at the party’s convention. House Speaker Paul Ryan on Friday said he wouldn’t instruct House members to vote for Trump, saying they should vote their conscience.
