• Trump Warns RNC Violating Loyalty Pledge: ‘That Wasn’t the Deal!’

    Donald Trump  warned Monday that he might break his loyalty pledge to the Republican National Committee and run as third party candidate after receiving news about a SuperPAC formed just to defeat him.

    “@WSJ reports that @GOP getting ready to treat me unfairly—big spending planned against me,” Trump tweeted . “That wasn’t the deal!”

    Trump  made an agreement in August with the RNC that he would not seek a third party nomination, but apparently the compact came with certain stipulations which he now believes have been disregarded.

    The business magnate was referencing a recent Wall Street Journal article in the tweet, which claims an anti-TrumpSuperPAC formed just to defeat him.

    The article, entitled  GOP Operative Plans ‘Guerrilla Campaign’ Against Donald Trump,  outlines Republican strategist Liz Mair‘s plan for a “guerrilla campaign” with the goal to “defeat and destroy” Trump’s candidacy by uniting “donors from rival camps into a single anti-Trump force”:

    The Republican establishment, increasingly alarmed by the enduring strength of Donald Trump’s presidential bid, is ratcheting up efforts to knock him out of the race, including the first attempt to unite donors from rival camps into a single anti-Trump force.

    A well-connected GOP operative is planning a “guerrilla campaign” backed by secret donors to “defeat and destroy” the celebrity businessman’s candidacy, according to a memo reviewed by The Wall Street Journal.

    …The most concerted effort is Trump Card LLC, the self-styled guerrilla campaign being launched by Liz Mair, the former online communications director of the Republican National Committee.

    “In the absence of our efforts, Trump is exceedingly unlikely to implode or be forced out of the race,” according to the Trump Card memo. “The stark reality is that unless something dramatic and unconventional is done, Trump will be the Republican nominee and Hillary Clinton will become president.”

    Trump would likely take away a lot of support from the eventual Republican nominee if decides to run as an independent,  ensuring that a Democrat would be elected to the Oval Office in 2016.
