Mitt and GOP unite against Trump Campaign

Jessie Melton, Staff Writer

Mounting concern over the ever growing reality of a GOP Trump nomination has left the Republican Party scrambling and compiling their resources to formulate an attack on Donald J. Trump. Trump has been very controversial and has managed to almost split the Republican Party into two distinct groups. People across the country, democrats and anti-Trump Republicans, finding something in common have united against Trump in a “Never Trump” campaign. People have begun speaking out all across the country on social media with the hashtag #nevertrump, comparing him to Hitler and people almost begging Trump supporters to reconsider.

Ted Cruz, John Kasich, and Marco Rubio before he suspended his campaign,

have exposed things about Trump that would destroy any other campaign. Cruz argues that Trump is basically Hillary Clinton’s, the supposed democratic presidential nominee, free ride to the whitehouse. Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders haven’t been quiet on the issue either.

With all the negative attacks on Trump’s campaign, many coming from high ranking respected conservative voices it’s surprising that none of it has seemed to injure Trump’s popularity. In Trump’s own words, “I could stand in the middle of fifth avenue and shoot somebody, and I wouldn’t lose voters.” It sounds impossible and completely overstated, but it is not far from the truth. Democrats shake their heads saying “leave it to the GOP to come up with a candidate like that, and anti-Trump republicans fear increases as they desperately search for a knight in shining armor to save the party. Mitt Romney the 2012 Republican presidential candidate, and previous governor of Massachusetts has been clear that he didn’t intend to run for President from the very beginning, in the past months he has received millions of letters, emails, and phone calls begging him to step up and beat Trump. Romney has restated himself over and over again, “I am not running for president”. But not starting his own presidential campaign doesn’t mean he has been silent about Trump. Romney delivered a scathing speech from Utah towards Trump, in it Romney declared, “”Here’s what I know: Donald Trump is a phony, a fraud, his promises are as worthless as a degree from Trump University. He’s playing members of the American public for suckers: He gets a free ride to the White House, and all we get is a lousy hat.”
