That story about how his dad came over and why is a lie. It's been thoroughly debunked.



Damn that's too bad...

Principle to his family is deeper. Something Donald Trump practices too. This won't hurt either one of them.



Agreed. Both men are who they are. This will be talked about and so-called experts will keep scratching their heads, wondering what the hell just happened.

He should have thought of that before he signed the pledge. He didn't think Trump could win so he signed. He said he would support ANYONE on that stage but he didn't mean it.


Trump, Cruz, and Kasich all scrapped their pledges, in March.

So, Trump didn't mean it either.

Kasich is the true man of principle here.

He didn't want to endorse, so he didn't show up.

Cruz accepted the invitation, then showed again why he's a weasel.

Please post the video or quote of Mr. Trump backing out of the pledge after he signed it. I don't think you will find it. He said he believed he would be the nominee, but sure he accepts the pledge.

Cluster **** what did they expect after they trashed him so bad.

I don't think they had a choice but allow him to speak.
He had enough delegates to have a slot.

It would not surprise me if Trump agreed to the spectacle, knowing it would pander to ratings and publicity.

How so? I can't stand the guy but I think it showed he is loyal to his family. That is never a bad thing when your family was rung through the ringer.



Yeah, but not even a smidgen of what the Palins went through and still are going through.

I love his explanation of why his dad is doing this.

I agree. Kasich is the man on the GOP ticket, but I was told I was an idiot.

The crowd is trying too hard to recover from Cruz and bolster Eric Trump.

the GOP would be wise to heed the advice of Ben Franklin:


We must, indeed, all hang together or, most assuredly, we shall all hang separately.

Reportedly Trump.

He extended his hand in an attempt to unify.

Isn't that what people want?

Did Cruz tell the convention to not vote for Trump?

Did Cruz tell the #nevertrump's to keep fighting Trump?

Did Cruz say that Trump is a terrible candidate?

No, he didn't say "I support Trump" but he didn't say "I don't support Trump" either.

He said 'Vote Republican." And Trump is the Republican nominee. After the late primary mudslinging, I'm surprised he got on the stage at all, let alone came to the convention.

Link to CNN



Donald Trump, Ted Cruz and John Kasich all stepped back from their earlier pledge to support the eventual Republican nominee during Tuesday night's CNN town hall.

"All of us shouldn't even have answered that question," Kasich said of the pledge party officials asked all the candidates to sign in September.

"No, I don't anymore," Trump said, when asked by CNN's Anderson Cooper if he continued "to pledge to support whoever the Republican nominee is?"

I find that entirely plausible.
