Donald Trump Affirms GOP “Loyalty”

“REPUBLICAN” FRONTRUNNER SAYS HE WILL SUPPORT EVENTUAL NOMINEE … || By FITSNEWS || After declining to make such a commitment during a “Republican” debate last month, GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump has put the “loyalty oath” issue to bed. We don’t agree with his decision … but what’s done is done….


|| By FITSNEWS || After declining to make such a commitment during a “Republican” debate last month, GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump has put the “loyalty oath” issue to bed.

We don’t agree with his decision … but what’s done is done.

First, here’s the oath that the GOP insisted Trump sign in order to appear on the primary ballot (including early-voting states like South Carolina):

I affirm that if I do not win the 2016 Republican nomination for president of the United States I will endorse the 2016 Republican presidential nominee regardless of who it is … I further pledge that I will not seek to run as an independent or write-in candidate nor will I seek or accept the nomination for president of any other party.

So desperate …

Anyway, Trump – confident in his poll position – is calling the GOP’s bluff.

“It is my great honor to pledge my total support and loyalty to the Republican Party and the conservative principles for which it stands,” Trump said in a statement.  “This is far and away the best way to secure victory against the Democrats in November 2016. I am leading in all local and national polls – my whole life has been about winning and this is what must be done in order to win the election and, most importantly, to Make America Great Again!”

Trump’s decision brings him back to where he was in January – when his advisors told us he was not going to pursue an independent candidacy.  He reconsidered that position in July, but is now firmly in the GOP camp.

That’s a shame …

The “Republican” party has no loyalty to taxpayers – only special interests.  It has no loyalty to individual liberty – only big government.  Accordingly, any candidate pledging loyalty to the “Republican” party is doing a disservice to freedom and free markets.

More to the point, signing an oath like this under duress is very un-Trump-like.  The GOP basically threatened Trump – and he backed down.

That’s tremendously disappointing …

Also last we checked the GOP establishment was continuing to come after Trump at every opportunity … efforts we suspect will only intensify now that he has ruled out a third-party bid.

Trumps a GREAT American. He wants Democrats GONE. That means he LOVES his country.

flip is so confused September 3, 2015 at 6:39 pm

He gave money to the Clintons and ran at their urging. Trump even said Obama does a good job and he would ‘hire him’. He sound just like the type of republican you’d love, dummy.

Speak D Truth September 3, 2015 at 3:03 pm

I guess now that they have to quit attacking him. Nikki might want to apologize if she has any aspirations to move to the federal government.

That was fun :-) September 3, 2015 at 3:45 pm

And so it begins….
The unTrumpening.

flip September 3, 2015 at 3:57 pm

She’s one of the future faces of the GOP on a national level. Thanks to her slapping the shit out of us racists on the flag issue. Funny how things work out.

GrandTango September 3, 2015 at 5:40 pm

I agree. Racists like us are dragging down the Republican party. We are a burden on conservative politics and the GOP would do well to finally just get rid of us and pursue responsible budgeting and lawmaking without having to appease us angry bigoted losers.

Rocky Verdad September 3, 2015 at 5:47 pm

Guess she’s going to be waiting for him in a nighty, at some descreet Trump hotel.

Trump ain’t nothing but another political whore………. in fact he is a bigger whore than the others because he is the biggest publicity whore in the entire universe.
Odds are when he loses the GOP nomination he will not honor the pledge and run as an independent anyway and you schlubs for Trump will lap that shit up.

Bye-Bye Democrat Party (: September 3, 2015 at 4:14 pm

Whore indeed. Trump FuCKED you ignorant Democrats. Now Bernie will rip yall apart, and the GOP STUFF your Obama Laws back down your throat until you CHOKE, asshole.

“So desperate…?”

This is a practical way to keep political races from turning into 6 candidate goat-ropes; parties do this even at most county-level races for just that reason.

TroubleBaby September 3, 2015 at 4:21 pm

Goats are more fit for office….

Mike at the Beach September 3, 2015 at 4:34 pm

Not necessarily untrue, but I was only talking about process.

Readyforchange September 3, 2015 at 3:58 pm

I was hoping he wouldn’t sign the SC pledge and win the primary on a write-in like Stroking Strom did!

Rocky Verdad September 3, 2015 at 4:00 pm

Why? It makes more sense to go down the current path for now. He’s likely to garner a good number of delegates up through March 15. But after that the states are all winner-take-all, and by then the RINOs will be down to Jeb and Marco, and either one of those two will beat Trump in the moderate mid-west states, and viola – Donaldo will be cheated. And when that happens, ain’t not pledge strong enough to stop the revenge.

Bernie has signed NO pledge September 3, 2015 at 4:10 pm

I’d love to se Bernie do that…How bout you? Hillary would shit a brick, along w/ all the other idiots in the Democrat Party.

Sandi Morals September 3, 2015 at 4:16 pm

Bernie might end up pleading the 5th before it is all over! What a pleasure it is to see the party of the lawless, perverts and socialists go up in flames.

I’m looking forward to see Hillary in a perp walk. Cuffed and stuffed. LOL

Sandi Morals September 3, 2015 at 10:25 pm

Yes sir. You are a class act. Have you ever considered public office? I believe you to be the right mix of faith, intelligence, common sense and humor.

Thank you for being on Fits.

RogueElephant September 4, 2015 at 8:19 am

No public office for me. I like to work for candidates I agree with and can respect. But other than that not so much.

CorruptionInColumbia September 4, 2015 at 2:35 am

That would have been so damn cool!!!!

Manray9 September 3, 2015 at 4:00 pm

So much for principles. The GOP has become like the Communist Party of the Soviet Union — one must publicly avow the party line or be shunned.

U R FUCKED, You Dumbass September 3, 2015 at 4:09 pm

He FUCKED you…Hahahaha. You just wanted him to give the White House to that Skank named Hillary…Suck to be your Ignorant ass…Hahahah…

So mature. So articulate. So thoughtful. Must be either a Trump supporter or a 12 year old boy.

Move to Iran, U belong there September 3, 2015 at 4:17 pm

Fuck you, you ignorant asshole. You’ve raped our nation. It’s very mature to slap the FUCK out of you, and kick you the FUCK out of power. It’s the ADULT thing to do.

This is SWEET….you fucking liberal idiot. GTFO my country.

Native Nations September 3, 2015 at 4:53 pm

Your country?

Rocky Verdad September 3, 2015 at 5:18 pm

That’s right. It’s our country. Mine, my friends, my family, we let you stay. So STFU and go sit down before we change our mind you ingorant failed blogger. BTW – if you think the GOP is gonna let him win the nomination, you’re a bigger retard than I thought. But then again, you never disappoint.

Sandi Morals September 3, 2015 at 4:22 pm

Our Revolutionary War heroes were Christians and still fought the enemy with every fiber of their being.All is fair in love and war!

We will defeat the Democrats just like the Colonists defeated the British!

Rocky Verdad September 3, 2015 at 5:49 pm

Uh, wasn’t it the French that really beat the British? Oui!!!

16 year old boy out of lube.

Trump Foils FITSNews!!!! September 3, 2015 at 4:07 pm

He FUCKED You didn’t he? FITSNews valued Trump because, as fucking stupid as you are, you saw him – like you saw Ravenel and Ervin – as a chance to elect a Democrat.

He just wants the Democrats gone, because he KNOWS they are destroying our nation.

Sandi Morals September 3, 2015 at 4:13 pm

You got it! Trump knows illegal immigration is the only way the Democrat Party survives and he ain’t gonna give them a chance to finish their mission of destroying this country.

Trump is the FIRST person that has been able to wrap the economy,trade,crime and foreign policy around the issue of immigration and TRANSLATE that into a message American’s can understand.

U R Right! September 3, 2015 at 4:15 pm

Well said, Sandi. Well said.

The others are locked up.

Imaginary Friends September 4, 2015 at 8:49 am

Flip uses fake names so that he doesn’t have to feel alone. It is a basic coping mechanism.

TroubleBaby September 3, 2015 at 4:56 pm

lol…when has Ralph Nader EVER been on the “Libertarian” ticket?

Oh, never mind.

Careful, TB. You don’t live in the magical world of make believe. You don’t know what “realities” he knows about.

Rocky Verdad September 3, 2015 at 5:44 pm

They’re like a Sybil-affected Colombian prostitute. “Here, let me pay you.” “You’re so hot.” “Here, let me pay you.”

TroubleBaby September 3, 2015 at 5:02 pm

So I haven’t read the loyalty pledge, but what is the specified “penalty” should the man who has four bankruptcies in his past decide not to abide by his word?

Does he at least get a promise ring for kneeling before his GOP masters?

Rocky Verdad September 3, 2015 at 5:18 pm

Oh a strange thought. Is this the offramp that Donaldo might have been looking for? Maybe he slides away – says Cruz is the guy – and fades back to reality TV.

Bible Thumper September 3, 2015 at 5:19 pm

You mean if you run as a Republican you’re required to be a loyal Republican. How bizarre.

Loyalty September 3, 2015 at 5:44 pm

If you’re running for office against someone it’s because you believe you’re a better person for the job. If the least favorable opponent in the primary wins, why do you “owe” them loyalty?

Trump 2016 September 3, 2015 at 6:46 pm

You don’t and if Jeb or a Koch puppet wins they will never get my vote. I can still do a write in.

Bible Thumper September 3, 2015 at 6:56 pm

You get a podium at Republicans sponsored events, participate in their debates, their primaries, their caucuses, inwhich Republican money was spent.

You take advantage of those Republicans resources and then use that as a launching pad for an Independent campaign.

Trump realized that would be sleazy. I give him credit for his pledge. As for endorsing the Republican candidate, that is a reciprocal pledge that he benefits from. If he wins the nomination, the other candidates will edorse him.

Trump not sleazy? lulz September 3, 2015 at 9:29 pm

“Trump realized that would be sleazy.”

“Then he said to himself, I’m going to sign that pledge and fuck them even harder if I don’t win.”

shifty henry September 4, 2015 at 12:22 am

“It’s a gutsy move!”

Taos September 4, 2015 at 7:08 am

OK, I agree with some of what you’re saying. However, the system is completely rigged to the favor of the 2 party system. Apparently, it would take around $15 million just to get on the ballots of all 50 states. Kind of pricey, huh? Further, don’t think that WE the taxpayers don’t fund the rigged 2 party system so when you say at “their primaries”, “their caucuses”, etc., is it really theirs?… or ours?

Delusional September 4, 2015 at 8:47 am

“As for endorsing the Republican candidate, that is a reciprocal pledge that he benefits from.”

Except that the Republican party is currently treating him like a black sheep of the family. He hasn’t benefited much at all so far. Now I don’t expect them to go out and support Hillary after the primary if Trump wins, but I certainly don’t expect them to be very happy about Trump winning either.

The party is only tolerating him for the sake of appearances, and that’s only because he’s doing so well in the polls.

nitrat September 4, 2015 at 8:59 am

Good grief.
When did Donald Trump ever care about sleazy?
I remember when he and Ivana were interviewed on 60 Minutes.
They defined the incredible sleaze of wretched excess.
Then, he got Marla Maples knocked up.
Donald is just smart enough to know that no third party candidate can win in the American system; even the Kochs and the Pauls finally figured that out.
If Teddy Roosevelt couldn’t win as a third party candidate after he had been a great president, no one can.

Rocky Verdad September 3, 2015 at 8:36 pm

Differences between a pledge and the law.
A pledge, is a promise but without a contract and not legally binding. If I pledge to pay $20 to the Help Tango Get a Brain foundation, I don’t have to pay it. Though he might crap his pants, attempt to have gay sex and throw feces like a monkey.

A law is something like this – if my undocumented parents gave birth to me here in the United States – I am a Citizen. A United States ctiizen, and the SS admin issues me my very own valid Social Security card, and I am entitled to Obamacare, and I can get a blue passport (for US citizens), and a drivers license and a voter registration card when I turn 18. And usually I get instate tuition.

See, that’s the difference. Ba-bam!!!!!!

ImpaledNazarene September 8, 2015 at 1:00 am

SSSHHH!!! You’re confusing the know-nothings.

nitrat September 4, 2015 at 8:48 am

“Accordingly, any candidate pledging loyalty to the “Republican” party is doing a disservice to freedom and free markets.”

But, it’s great when Republican politicians sign Grover’s No New Taxes pledge and then end up hamstringing their city, county, state or country when something unforeseen happens…like a flood or hurricane or like a War on Terror that they are too terrified to pass a war tax to pay for out of pants wetting fear of breaking their pledge to Grover and what he will do to them?

And, then, they’re are so fiscally stupid and ideologically rigid they pass tax cuts at the same time they are NOT paying for a War on Terror and don’t appear to know how that will affect the debt and deficit?

But, hey, they get to blame some other guy when the results of their actions turn out just the way a 5th grader could have predicted they would.

That Republican ‘personal responsibility’ is some great stuff…for everyone but Republican politicians ..who are never accountable for a single thing they wreck.
American voters deserve Donald Trump and his body guards.

Robert LeBruce September 4, 2015 at 10:38 am

History repeats itself.
Time after time
No one remember how that jerk face
H Ross Perot fouled up the 1992 elections
People are doomed to repeat mistakes over & over
It will be
“Howard stern for governor ”
Stern ran for governor promising to fix the roads on New York. At night
Suddenly his popularity was surging and polls showed he could win
Stern didn’t wanna be governor
His only way out was to opt out citing the fact that he would never reveal his financial records

Fast forward to now
Trump is enjoying the positive press and the high poll numbers. For now
But when the press/media set out to destroy him (see Sarah palin) he won’t be so affable
And his true face will be revealed

Trump has gone bankrupt FOUR TIMES
do you think his creditors like him ?

His infidelities are legendary

He is not that nice a guy
He’s saying what certain people wanna hear
But what about when he starts shooting his mouth off on things that are unpopular

He’s today’s interesting soup of the day

I predict he crashes like a meteorite into the earth

No future for Trump
