Delegates face death threats from Trump support

Subtitle: At the Republican National Committee’s spring meeting, delegates describe vicious missives demanding they support the GOP front-runner.




“First it was an email warning Steve House, the Colorado GOP chairman, to hide his family members and “pray you make it to Cleveland.” Then there was the angry man who called his cell phone and told him to put a gun down his throat.
“He said, ‘I’ll call back in two minutes and if you’re still there, I’ll come over and help you’,” House recalled. ………..

………. In hotel hallways and across dinner tables, many party leaders attending this week’s meetings shared similar stories. One party chair says a Trump supporter recently got in his face and promised “bloodshed” if he didn’t win the GOP nomination. An Indiana delegate who criticized Trump received a note warning against “traditional burial” that ended with, “We are watching you.” ………..


….."A Trump supporter recently got in my face and threatened ‘bloodshed’ at the national convention and said he would ‘meet me at the barricades’ if Trump isn't the nominee,” said one party chairman, who spoke on condition of anonymity. .... Several delegates and party leaders told POLITICO that the rising atmosphere of fear has silenced some critics and led party leaders to eye extra security for state conventions and local gatherings where Trump supporters might take exception to the results. ………

……………… Amid conversations about convention security, Trump’s detractors face one harrowing fact: the fear wrought by threats and intimidation could be affecting convention rules — and, potentially, the GOP nomination fight itself — to Trump’s benefit.”



I for one am not surprised. Trump has used this “clean hands” method of intimidation and at times violence to insure he gets what he wants………It’s just business to him

No reason at all to support threatening anyone. But at this point I cannot imagine any of the Republican Delegates actually wanting to still be delegates, as this convention is going to be a massive headache for the party.

It will give us plenty of :popcorn2: moments to talk about though.

I guess that makes him no better that what he is running against. Although, after 30 years Hillary is still innocent. Doesn't Trump get a grace period?

If you bother/wish to check I have posted several items concerning HRC............my take is she is innocent until proven other wise........and the "evidence" suggested as wrong doing is questionable...

I do not like or care for Mr. Trump........I have met Mr. Trump and seen him in operation............he is IMHO a dirt bag, a bully, and threating if he does not get his way....... from what I saw of him.......I judge him to be dangerous.......

Not that I like Trump but people don't take kindly to not having their votes invalidated, which is what the Republican party is doing. I seem to remember there being a slogan a while back that went something like "no taxation without representation" during a time of some kind of strife or some such thing. Invalidating votes = the same thing.
