Although the bombastic Donald Trump has run headlong into a political block wall several times recently, this high-handed move by Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus is equally concerning. When you have a name that sounds like a mysterious contagion, it could well have a lifelong deleterious effect.
Following a Thursday meeting with Donald Trump and his advisers, Priebus made it known that he does not plan to let the Trump campaign take over the party apparatus if Donald Trump wins the Republican nomination in Cleveland this July.
This is in direct contraction to longstanding precedent and Priebus’ own words on the RNC website:
“Conventions are democracy in action and our Party’s gathering in Cleveland will be an exciting, transparent, and fair process.”
Priebus is either following Establishment dictates or irrationally thinks he’s been knighted supreme ruler — although as the former RNC general counsel, he should know better. Either way, he needs to hear from us: (202) 863-8500.
