Trump says RNC in default of pledge
Donald Trump says the Republican Party is in default of its pledge to treat him fairly.
“I have never met people like politicians. They are the most dishonest people I have ever met,” the New York billionaire said during a stop at Mount Pleasant hotel on Monday. “They lie, lie, lie and then they apologize.”
Trump suggested that the Republican National Committee was not honoring a pledge to not hurt his campaign if the businessman promised not to mount a third-party presidential run.
Trump was booed several times during the Republican presidential debate Saturday in Greenville for criticizing other candidates. Trump said the debate audience was stacked with lobbyists and big Republican donors.
“I signed a pledge,” Trump said. “But the pledge is not being honored by them. … They are in default of their pledge.”
