Donald Trump Rescinds Pledge To Support The Eventual Republican Presidential Nominee

On Tuesday, GOP front-runner Donald Trump dropped a pledge to support a party presidential nominee other than himself. During a CNN town hall event in Wisconsin, he was asked if he still supported a pledge he made last year to support whoever is the Republican nominee for the Nov. 8 election. He said, "No, I don't anymore."

Trump, and his rivals, signed the pledge last September. His decision comes as he and his closest rival, Ted Cruz, fight for the 1,237 delegates needed to win the nomination. Last week, Trump and Cruz made it personal by including their wives in vicious attacks.

Cruz was also asked a similar question about supporting the nominee. He refused to give a straight answer and said, "Let me tell you my solution to that. Donald is not going to be the GOP nominee. We're going to beat him."

Trump said he doesn't need Cruz's support. He told CNN moderator Anderson Cooper, "I watched him tonight and I watched how tormented he was when you asked him that question. I don't want to have him be tormented. Let me just tell you I don’t want his support, I don't need his support. I don't want him to be uncomfortable."

In addition, Trump acknowledged that some of those who dropped out of the race may have bitter feelings towards him. Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker recently endorsed Ted Cruz. Trump stated, "I drove him out of the race. I drove Jeb Bush out of the race, I drove Rand Paul out of the race. I understand why they don't like me."

John Kasich said of supporting the nominee, "I want to see how this finishes out."
