The blasts are getting louder and more intrusion. There is no longer any question as to whether he is seriously damaging the Republican brand. However, this is only the beginning! Most of the many Republican candidates are treating him with kid gloves; mainly because of his not so subtle and recent innuendos that he will run as a third party candidate. Certainly all Democrats would cheer such an event. But it appears that that possibility does not phase Trump. Of course, such an event could not be successful. There are a small number of people that support his positions, conduct, style and petulance , but the best these misguided individuals can achieve is to partially fill Trump’s huge ego. Unfortunately, there is little evidence that he will voluntarily withdraw his his bid for the nomination. Is anyone really sure he ever left the Democratic Party.
