Trump Just Made a Big Decision About His Campaign


Donald Trump made a big decision regarding his presidential ambitions. The Huffington Post reported the real estate mogul committed to Republican party leaders that he will not launch a third party candidacy if he fails to win the nomination.

This move could endear him to more voters who were leery about supporting Trump due to his recent switch to the Republican Party. This move also would provide Trump with added cover from detractors who say he is just attempting to split the vote and help the Democratic nominee.

Michael Cohen who is an aide for Trump’s campaign, told HuffPo the presidential candidate was simply seeking a fair process in the primary.

“He just wanted to ensure that the establishment would treat him as fair as they would treat any of the other candidates,” Cohen said. “And I believe, right now, they are treating him fairly. It is my personal belief that the RNC is treating Mr. Trump the same as the other candidates, and he will live up to his agreement not to run as an independent.”

Earlier this month talk radio host Hugh Hewitt advised Trump that pledging against a third party run would embolden him with more primary voters as many Republicans would never vote for someone willing to run on a third party ticket after Ross Perot’s run helped Bill Clinton’s election. Trump returned to Hewitt’s show and seemed more solidified in his decision to commit. Trump said:

“I didn’t think it was appropriate to commit during the debate. You know, I was a little surprised they even asked me at the debate but that was OK. But at some point, look, I want to run, I’m leading in the polls by a lot, I want to run as a Republican. I want to get the nomination and I want to beat the Democrats.”

Do you think this will make devoted primary voters take a second look at Donald Trump?
