Trump Not Yet Ready to Let Go of Third Party Option

GOP presidential hopeful Donald Trump says that he would still consider a third-party run. On Wednesday afternoon, Trump was a guest on the Hugh Hewitt radio show, where he was asked about running a campaign outside of the GOP. Hewitt also quoted several high-profile Republicans who stated that Trump had promised not to run as a third-party candidate. Trump responded that it's not something he would want to do, but still has it on the table in the event he does not win the Republican nomination. He went on to say "At some point I'll actually commit."

While Trump has stated that he doesn't want to run third party, he also believes that it gives him leverage with party leadership who he doesn't believe has always treated him fairly. Although, he said he is currently being treated well and is happy with his high poll numbers. He also stated that he wants to get the nomination and then beat the Democrats. Hewitt advised Trump that his poll chances would rise if he makes the commitment not to run third-party. Trump responded that his friend Steve Wynn, hotel and casino magnate, told him the same thing.
