The vicious attacks against leading presidential candidate Donald Trump, particularly after his recent primary victories in Florida, Illinois, North Carolina and Missouri, reveal the strategy of the so-called elites of the Republican Party. Having bent down to our African-American Muslim president for going on eight years, largely for fear of being branded racists, this despicable crowd of cowards and do-nothings, led by the likes of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Speaker Paul Ryan (previously John Boehner) and political consultants like Karl Rove, fear that their hold on power and thus the money gravy train of Washington, D.C., will come to a screeching halt if Trump is elected president. The Donald owes nothing to them, having already lined their pockets with what amounts to legal bribes while he was simply a businessman. Having come out of the closet to run for president, and honestly admitted that he legally bribed these low lives when he needed to, as a would-be president Trump is now free of a corrupt system he used so well to build a $10 billion empire. That is why the Republican establishment so fears him and will do nothing short of using every underhanded trick and scam to deny him the presidency.
Indeed, in the days leading up to the most recent primaries, which Trump largely won, the then darling and “Great Cuban Hope” of the Republican establishment, Marco Rubio, proclaimed that if Trump won the primary process, he would find it increasingly difficult to support him in the general election against Hillary Clinton. Ted Cruz and John Kasich echoed similar sentiments. As for “Little Marco,” who was blown out even in his home state of Florida, winning only one of 67 counties – Miami-Dade, not coincidentally heavily Cuban and where he lives – the motivation seemed crystal clear: Do everything to defeat Trump in the general presidential election in 2016 and live to fight again against President Hillary Clinton in 2020.
