BREAKING! Donald Trump to Make Decision Today That Will Affect Every GOP Presidential Candidate

Donald Trump famously refused to raise his hand when Megyn Kelly asked all of the GOP candidates at the first primary debate if they would ultimately support the eventual GOP nominee.

Trump’s threat of a 3rd party run has given him a fair amount of leverage in the primary race thus far.

However, to show that he is a serious candidate for the Republican nomination, Trump will reportedly sign a GOP loyalty pledge today and announce that he will not run as a 3rd party candidate.


Politico broke the story writing:

A close associate tells POLITICO that Donald Trump plans to sign a loyalty pledge Thursday that would bind him to endorse the Republican nominee, and would preclude a third-party run. Trump made the stunning decision, which he has long resisted, to avoid complications in getting listed on primary ballots, and to take away an attack line in the next debate, the associate said.

“The rationale is that they have treated him fairly,” the associate said, echoing the criterion Trump has long given for taking a party pledge. “He’s willing to sign it to avert any problems with is state filings – South Carolina asked for a pledge to support the nominee if you’re on the ballot.

“He’s been treated fairly, like any candidate. … And it takes away a line of attack for debates.”

The move will likely be welcomed by many who were concerned that Trump’s candidacy existed only to disrupt the GOP nomination process.

Will this change a lot of people’s views about Trump? Will his supporters start to fall off because of his ties to the GOP now? Share your comments below and add this story to your Twitter/Facebook page for discussion.
