Nope. If he is an establishment candidate, then why are the GOP officials trying to derail him? They want him out. Almost the entire republican party
wants him out. He can't get anyone worth note to back him. Nobody. He is funding his entire campaign out of his own wallet. None of his "Cabal/NWO"
buddies are running to back him. Nobody is. He is taking shot after shot by the media and fellow republican members (and not just the ones in the race
Not everything is a conspiracy you know.
They're trying to derail him because he could lose the party the next election, if not tear the party apart. Simple strategy.
He is a loose cannon, full of passionate soundbites and vague, impractical policy suggestions. He's promising the moon and the stars: more than
enough to split the Republican base.
Part of the problem is the lack of a party platform. In most other countries, the party agrees a platform and the nominees campaign around it. For
some reason, you Americans put personality first, as if policies were an irrelevance.
So, at the moment, the spectacle of the Republican nominees fighting against each other says "deeply divided party". Not a good way to go into an
election. I'm sure the party will line up meekly behind him if he wins the nomination but that, then, will be seen as insincerity.
If he wins in November, he's either going to back down on his fantastical policies and be a complete flop of a president or spend four years fighting
his own party to pass his impractical measures.
If he loses in November, the GOP faces another eight years of infighting and a Democrat presidency.
Lose-lose for the GOP.
