It has been reported on three different occasions now, twice from Donald Trump himself, that he would like to form a super PAC to defeat one of the very few voices for constitutional conservatism in the senate, Ted Cruz.
Trevor Loudon is very concerned that Trump’s anti-Cruz rhetoric will further splinter the conservative base.
“To beat Hillary Clinton in November, Donald Trump needs Ted Cruz supporters,” Loudon said. “Trump has to decide right now: ‘Does he want to beat Hillary, or does he want to beat Ted Cruz? He can’t do both, they are mutually exclusive.”
On Friday, less than 24 hours after accepting the republican nomination for president, Trump addressed Republican National Convention volunteers and focused, inexplicably, on Ted Cruz. In addition to reviving the truly offensive lie that Ted Cruz’s dad had something to do with the assassination of John F. Kennedy, Trump said, as reported at the Daily Wire:
“I like Ted, he’s fine. Again, I don’t want his endorsement. If he gives it, I will not accept it, just so you understand. If he gives it, I will not accept it, just so you understand. If he gives it I will – I will not accept. It won’t matter. Honestly, he should’ve done it because nobody cares and he would’ve been in better shape for four years from now if he’s gonna be – I don’t think, I don’t see him winning anyway, frankly. But if he – if he did I – it’s fine. Although, maybe I’ll set up a Super PAC if he decides to run. Are you allowed to set up a Super PAC, Mike [Pence], if you are the president to fight somebody?”
