RNC tells Bush, Cruz & Kasich to get in line behind Trump… or else

Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus suggested there will be consequences for GOP politicians who fail to get behind presidential candidate Donald Trump.

Speaking on CBS’s Face the Nation on Sunday, Priebus had harsh words for failed presidential candidates Jeb Bush, Ted Cruz and John Kasich, as well as other Republicans who have not endorsed Trump for president.

“We’re a private party. We’re not a public entity,” Priebus said. “Those people need to get on board.”

“And if they’re thinking they’re going to run again someday, I think we’re going to evaluate the nomination process, and I don’t think it’s going to be that easy for them,” he warned.Reince Priebus

The GOP chairman pointed to the RNC pledge signed by all candidates which promises they will support the candidate who is nominated during the primary season.

“I affirm that if I do not win the 2016 Republican nomination for the President of the United States, I will endorse the Republican presidential nominee regardless of who it is,” the beginning of the non-legally binding pledge reads.

“Look, people who agreed to support the nominee, who took part in our process, they used tools from the RNC,” he explained. “They agreed to support the nominee. They took part in our process.”Reince Priebus

The RNC chairman’s statements may not be enough to convince Trump’s primary opponents to support their rival, particularly in light of the harsh statements Trump made about them during the primaries.

    I don’t think anyone really cares what these losers think. As far as Cruze goes I hope the people in his district vote him out that way he can join Hillary’s charity and hobnob with the Muslim Brotherhood.
