This was the theory: as candidates dropped out of the battle for the Republican presidential nomination, their supporters would unite behind the real rival to outsider Donald Trump.
Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump has won another high-profile endorsement, with retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson becoming the second former Republican candidate to back him in the race for the White House.
“We buried the hatchet. That was political stuff,” Carson said during a joint appearance with the billionaire businessman…
“I have found in talking with him, that there’s a lot more alignment, philosophically and spiritually, than I ever thought that there was,” added Carson…
Another former candidate, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, announced last month he was backing Trump.
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump canceled one of his signature rallies Friday, saying he didn’t want to see “people get hurt” after protesters packed into the Chicago arena where it was to take place.
The announcement that the billionaire businessman would postpone the rally until another day led a large portion of the crowd inside the University of Illinois at Chicago Pavilion to break out into raucous cheers. Meanwhile, supporters of the candidate started chanting “We want Trump! We want Trump!”
There were isolated physical confrontations between some members of the crowd after the event was canceled.
Speaking later with Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren, Trump said he had arrived in Chicago two hours earlier and about 25,000 people were trying to enter the arena…
Protesters at the rally for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump rushed the arena floor in jubilant celebration after the announcement that he was calling off the event due to security concerns.
Many jumped up and down, with arms up in the air, shouting “F— Trump!” ‘’Bernie! Bernie!” and “We stopped Trump!”
The Left is the natural home of the totalitarian.
