If you’re confused about what is going on right now with the Republican primary and prominent leadership like Speaker of the House Paul Ryan refusing to support Donald Trump, the chief strategist at The Publicity Agency explains it simply in a new blog post.
“Donald Trump may call himself a Republican, but the Republican Party leadership see him as an independent or a renegade. If that is true, then he is not, by definition, a true Republican,” Glenn Selig begins the blog.
He goes on to write: “Being a true Republican, in the mind of Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, former GOP nominee Mitt Romney, Sen. Lindsay Graham and others would mean embracing the basic tenets of the GOP platform on the issues: Economics, abortion, immigration, etc. But Donald Trump refuses to do so because he marches to the beat of his own drummer and appears to make it up as he goes along.
“Donald Trump is a businessman. He sees EVERYTHING as negotiable. Everything. That is his “art of the deal.” If you go in with principals, in his mind you don’t get things done. You get things done in life by getting the best deal you possibly can. For him there is virtually nothing that cannot be artfully negotiated. His only guiding principal, according to Party loyalists, is that you get a good deal. On anything. That would include, it would seem, abortion, the economy, raising the minimum wage, geopolitical gamesmanship.
Therefore the Party is not, cannot and will not support him.
“No one in political power in Washington will be this direct, so let me say it: The GOP would rather throw the election, even if that means running a third-party candidate who will siphon votes from Trump to make sure he loses. They’d would rather hand the White House keys to Hillary Clinton than allow the party of Lincoln to be destroyed. If Trump should win, he would be the President of the United States, and become the leader of the Republican Party. The second part of the sentence is the tougher pill for Party loyalists to swallow.
Despite what establishment Republicans say in public about supporting the nominee, even if it’s Trump, it’s the much lesser of two evils to have a Democrat to stay in the White House for four more years than for Trump, a ‘supposed’ Republican, who would, in the process of taking the keys to the 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, would be successfully engineering a hostile takeover of the Party.”
