  • Donald Trump said Tuesday that he would no longer honor his pledge to support the eventual Republican nominee for president.
  • When asked if he would keep the pledge he signed last September, Trump responded: “No, I won’t.” The real estate mogul explained that he was taking back the pledge because “I have been treated very unfairly.”
  • Cruz shrugged off the question of whether he would support Trump in November, saying “Donald is not going to be the GOP nominee. We’re going to beat him.”
  • Trump told supporters at a rally that “if we win Wisconsin, it’s pretty much over,” noting his significant delegate lead over both Cruz and Kasich.

Donald Trump said Tuesday that he would no longer honor his pledge to support the eventual Republican nominee for president while fellow candidates Ted Cruz and John Kasich refused to say whether they would back the party’s pick.

All three GOP contenders appeared at a CNN town hall in Milwaukee one week before Wisconsin’s April 5 primary.

When asked if he would keep the pledge he signed last September, Trump responded: “No, I won’t.” The real estate mogul explained that he was taking back the pledge because, “I have been treated very unfairly,” and listed the Republican National Committee and party establishment among those he believes have wronged him.

Cruz, who is running second to Trump in the delegate race, shrugged off the question of whether he would support Trump in November, saying “Donald is not going to be the GOP nominee. We’re going to beat him.” The Texas senator added that nominating Trump “would be an absolute train wreck” and “would hand the general election to Hillary Clinton.”

Trump, who followed Cruz on the town hall stage, said he didn’t need a promise of support from Cruz.

“He doesn’t have to support me,” he said.

Ohio Gov. Kasich, who has vowed to keep his campaign going until this summer’s convention in Cleveland despite being a distant third in the delegate count, also didn’t say whether he’d stand by the pledge.

“If the nominee is somebody I think is really hurting the country, and diving the country, I can’t stand behind them,” Kasich said.

Trump has 736 delegates and is the only candidate with a realistic path to clinching the nomination by the end of the primaries on June 7. However, a Cruz win in Wisconsin would narrow Trump’s already tight path to the nomination and raise the prospect of a contested convention in Cleveland.

Trump told supporters at a rally that “if we win Wisconsin, it’s pretty much over,” noting his significant delegate lead over both Cruz and Kasich. Trump held the rally in Janesville, Wis., hometown of House Speaker Paul Ryan — who last week called for more civility in politics even as the Republican presidential race grew more personal and nasty.

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, a former GOP presidential contender, endorsed Cruz Tuesday, saying he believes the Texas senator is best positioned to win the GOP nomination and defeat Clinton.

    I think that next year there may well not be a Republican Party. They stand for nothing. They are the cave-in party and they represent no one. It may well be time for them to disappear and a new party take their place, one that truly represents the people of the United States and not simply a bunch of special intersts. Today, it is just one big donor after another, and they donate to both parties which means that they are controlling everything from the background no matter which side wins the election. Trump is the only exception and they are scared to death of him because he can and will upset their apple cart and they will lose all their power. I may not always like everything Trump says or the way he says it, but what he says is the unvarnished truth. He may use profanity once in a while, but heII, I know that Truman and Eisenhower and Nixon and Kennedy and Johnson all used profanity frequently.
