Now Members of GOP Establishment Saying They’re Open to Support Hillary If Trump Is the Nominee

Members of the GOP foreign policy establishment are open to supporting Ted Cruz or even Hillary Clinton for president if that’s what it takes to prevent Donald Trump from becoming commander in chief.

In interviews with The Hill, prominent Republicans who signed a scathing open letter denouncing Trump said they aren’t wavering from their opposition to him.


“What’s happening is you have a lot of people who are desperate to get anybody in there other than Trump. … People are going to go for Cruz, because at the end of the day they think he’s considerably less bad than Trump,” said Eliot A. Cohen, a former adviser to Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) who also served in the George W. Bush administration.

Cohen, along with Bryan McGrath, organized an open letter opposing Trump that was signed by more than 120 members of the Republican foreign policy establishment. The letter declared that Trump is unfit to be president because his views of American power are “wildly inconsistent and unmoored in principle” . . .

Support among the group appears to be shifting to Cruz, especially now that the Texas senator has won endorsements from former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.).

    .
    Again –> In other words, a vote for Trump is a vote for Hillary!
    .
    Or … as Tim Lubinus (Executive Director of the Baptist Convention Iowa) … when questioned on another matter … put it:
    .
    “Anyone who REALLY doesn’t want Hillary to be president SHOULD DO EVERYTHING THEY CAN TO SUPPORT TED CRUZ” [emphasis mine].

    Well it is these RINOS that we are sick and tired of and that is why we the rank and file of the Republican Party insists on picking a candidate that will uphold the platform of the Republican Party. We will rid the party of of all RINOS or we will start a new party. Over 40% of the Republicans have said that they will leave the Republican Party if the Party leaders block Trump. This of course will mean that the Republicans will lose all power and these ass holes that signed the letter will be out on their ass and replaced by a democrat. The Party leaders had better stop this crap of trying to make Trump look bad and get behind and support him or kiss the election goodby.

    Well, well, G03, since when did you become the judge of whether or not someone is a true Christian?? It seems to me that Scripture tells us that God alone is the judge. Just because someone happens to be a Trump supporter has absolutely nothing to do with their Faith in God. Pretty sure it says “judge not and you will not be judged”. Sorry, I happen to be a Trump supporter and I also happen to be a Christian. And I can tell you for sure that YOU ARE NOT MY JUDGE!!!!! I guess in your opinion Dr. Carson, Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson, Willy Robertson, and I could go on and on are also not Christians either huh? Because they have all endorsed Mr. Trump. I suggest you leave the judging to God! just sayin’!!! TRUMP 2016

      You sound a just a little self righteous to me. You didn’t even answer my question. That was:
      Pat Robertson, Willy Robertson, Jerry Falwell Jr., Ben Carson, Mike Huckabee, and a whole host of other Christians support Trump. So, according to you they aren’t Christians. When did God put you in charge of judging? Yup, you are nothing more than a Self Righteous blow hard. Nope, not judging you just stating facts. That’s all. Just sayin’ TRUMP 2016!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
