Donald Trump Republican National Committee

Threatens third party run

23 Jul, 2015

Trump says he may launch a third-party White House run if the Republican National Committee is unfair to him during the 2016 primary season.

The RNC has not been supportive. They were always supportive when I was a contributor. I was their fair-haired boy. The RNC has been, I think, very foolish…I’ll have to see how I’m being treated by the Republicans,” Trump said. “Absolutely, if they’re not fair, that would be a factor.

Trump says the GOP establishment in Washington dislikes him because he’s not part of the political class.

I’m not in the gang. I’m not in the group where the group does whatever it’s supposed to do. I want to do what’s right for the country — not what’s good for special interest groups that contribute, not what’s good for the lobbyists and the donors. I’m not surrounded by all sorts of pollsters and PR people. I speak the truth. Our country is in big trouble, and I know how to turn it around.
