Trump: RNC Not Honoring Pledge; Threatens To Run Third-Party Over Debate Tickets


At a campaign rally in South Carolina Monday afternoon, Donald Trump voiced his displeasure with the Republican National Committee for their handling of the way tickets are dispersed for debates. Trump was booed at Saturday's debate when he challenged Jeb Bush for saying his George W. Bush kept the country safe during his presidency. Trump reminded Bush that 9/11 occurred under his brother's watch.

"Mr. Trump is arguing this morning that the Republican National Committee failed the obligation to disperse tickets and that's why he was booed and went after his own pledge to not run as a third-party candidate," FOX News' Carl Cameron reported.

Here's what Trump said:

TRUMP: The RNC, better get its act together. I signed a pledge. But the pledge is not being honored by them. They are in default of their pledge.

"He went on to say that there was a fraud and the Republican National Committee is not holding the duty and warning and this is the front runner in South Carolina and the winner of the New Hampshire primary saying if he is not treated fairly he will break his pledge and run as a third-party candidate," Cameron also said.
