Trump Fires Warning Shot At RNC: ‘That Wasn’t The Deal!’

By Alex Pappas | Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is firing a warning shot at the Republican National Committee after it was reported that some establishment Republicans are forming an outside organization to try to harm his candidacy.

In a tweet on Monday, Trump referenced a recent Wall Street Journal article about these anti-Trump efforts, tagging the RNC’s official Twitter account, @GOP, in his complaint.

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

The Wall Street Journal report does not say that the RNC is involved. But the story says Liz Mair, the architect of the Trump Card LLC organization described in the article, once worked for the RNC.

The “deal” Trump is likely referring to is his agreement in September to sign a pledge not to run as an independent. He said at the time he was given the “assurance that I would be treated fairly” by RNC chairman Reince Priebus in return for signing the pledge.

The Wall Street Journal article referenced by Trump is titled “GOP Operative Plans ‘Guerrilla Campaign’ Against Donald Trump.”

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

    Where do these people have the right to claim that Mr. Trump should implode or get out of the race?
    But this goes to show you just how dirty the Republican party actually is they are no different than the Democrats. No wonder you never have seen any “outsider” as anyone not belonging to their exclusive club is called ever making it in any of these elections. No wonder the country is in the mess its in. It looks like they would like to dig up some dirt on Trump but try as they might they can’t find a damn thing.

      Gary, we need all the support we can to run ads FAVORABLE to Donald Trump!

      Candidate John Kasich has a Super PAC to OPPOSE Trump! Kasich is a joke.

    Thank you Mr. Trump. YOU are saying what EVERY sensible American is thinking; Can’t deport them ALL………’we can’t go to the moon’……that’s all you hear from the Left is ‘…we can’t…’ that applies to EVERYTHING except spending money and taxing more.

    The RNC better reign in these ‘Super PACs’; Like Donald said, and I paraphrase, “it’s stupid to think these guys don’t talk’… hear that Priebus?

      John Kasich has a super pac to oppose Donald Trump!

      That is why we need a Super PAC to support and endorse Trump!

      Super PACs are independent political committees that support a candidate with unlimited, often anonymous, donations from companies, unions, or individuals. The groups can’t contribute directly to a candidate, but they can run favorable ads about a candidate — or negative ones about their favored candidate’s opponent.

    If Jeb Bush or John Kasich gets elected we will get the same policies that we would get with Hillary. So I don’t understand why Bush/Kasich Republicans think it is important to keep Hillary out of the White House.
