RNC Will “Punish” Key Republicans Who Break with Donald Trump
Republicans who abandon the party by refusing to back its Presidential nominee Donald Trump to face opposition if they try to run in the future, the Republican National Committee (RNC) Chair Reince Priebus said on TV Sunday.
“People who agreed to support the nominee, that took part in our process, they used tools from the RNC, they agreed to support the nominee,” Mr. Priebus said. “We are a private party, not a public entity. 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 process of the nomination process, and I don’t think it’s going to be that easy for them.”
Ohio Gov. John Kasich, who ran against and was beaten handily by Donald Trump in the Republican primary, said earlier Sunday chances are “miniscule” he will vote for Donald Trump.
“These are things our party is going to look at in the process,” Mr. Priebus said.
“People who gave us their word, used information from the RNC, should be on board.
“People in our party are talking about what we are going to do about this. What the penalty for that? It’s not a threat.
“We have a process in place … an agreement with the participants in that process. And those participants do not follow through with the promises they made in that process. What should a private party do about that if those same people come around in 8 to 8 years?”
Also, Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ) said Sunday that Donald Trump is being wisely advised to keep his tax forms under wraps during an audit “given the history of the Obama Administration” to use IRS In “as a weapon” against conservatives
Gov. Christie, a former primary presidential candidate who is now one of Mr. Trump’s top advisers and surrogates, said most Americans’ do not trust the IRS.
