Donald Trump reaches 1,237 delegate, what now
Donald Trump has officially reached the much needed 1,237 delegates to rightfully clinch the Republican nomination for President. However, not everyone is supportive of the possible future President of the United States. There have been those on the right who have said they will never vote Trump and instead will vote for Hillary Clinton. More than a dozen Conservative pundits announced they would not vote for Donald Trump, no matter what, including some prominent Fox News contributors:
Mark Levin: “I Am Not Voting For Donald Trump. Period.” The conservative radio host reacted to an attack on him by Trump ally Roger Stone by declaring, “I am not voting for Donald Trump. Period.” He added, “Count me as never Trump.” [com, 4/8/16]
George Will: Republicans Must Keep Trump Out Of The White House. Will wrote an April Washington Post column headlined, “If Trump is nominated, the GOP must keep him out of the White House.” Will concluded: “If Trump is nominated, Republicans working to purge him and his manner from public life will reap the considerable satisfaction of preserving the identity of their 162-year-old party while working to see that they forgo only four years of the enjoyment of executive power.” [Washington Post, 4/29/16]
Fox’s Guy Benson: I Won’t Vote for Trump or Clinton. Benson, a Fox News contributor and Townhall.com editor, tweeted of the prospect of voting for Clinton and Trump: “I certainly won’t, nor will I vote for him. Both are unfit statists.” [com, 4/29/16]
Some Republicans who consider themselves Libertarians are strongly leaning towards voting for the Libertarian candidate. Strong Libertarian supporter Kevin Boyd has two suggestions for Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson:
- 1) Republicans for Gary Johnson needs to become a thing within a few days
- 2) Start making the rounds with #NeverTrump conservative media. Get on with Steve Deace, Mark Levin, Charlie Sykes, and Glenn Beck ASAP. Line up interviews with conservative blogs and podcasts. Send the message there is an alternative to Trump and Clinton. Talk about what you have in common with conservatives.
- 3) Start lining up GOP donors who refuse to support Trump and have them bankroll the campaign.
Conservatives who want to keep Hillary out of office must accept Donald Trump as the nominee. Despite Trump’s liberal flaws, he will still keep America strong. While, Clinton has still not taken responsibility for the deaths of Americans in Benghazi. Donald Trump has a real plan for America and Clinton is just a 3rd Obama term. The decision you must make is easy, Trump or Clinton. Remember we only elect Trump for four years. So if you’re not happy with him, vote for you candidate of choice next election.
