Why the GOP is canceling primaries

Why the GOP is canceling primaries 1

 

Donald Trump is so confident that he has the support of the Republican base, he supports several US states canceling their 2020 primaries. Confused? Chris Cillizza explains why the Trump administration wouldn't mind shutting out any competition and uncertainty ahead of 2020 — by just awarding delegates to Trump without holding primary votes.

  1. Hey, Chris here — do you think anyone can actually have a good showing against Trump in a GOP primary?

    Just goes to show how much the system is corrupt.

  3. The Republican party already has their Racist Jesus. It doesn’t get better for this party. Their Second Coming arrived in November 2016.

  4. That’s because trump has everyone blackmailed in the GOP

  5. Not allowing people to choose their candidates is not democratic or America at all !
    Republican Party is pulling a stunt showing the corruption in their party in modern times … it’s sad

    • @Chris Oros Then you weren’t even paying attention to the election. You’re probably a high school kid that doesn’t even vote. You’re probably from an upper middle class family and have let yourself become obsessed with socialism.

    • America wants Trump dipsh!t!. The only people who don’t want Trump are anti-American pieces of slime or gullible manipulated brainwashed morons.Which of the two are you? I am guessing both. MAGA!

    • Joe Dirt I voted in 2016 I just would of never voted for a democrat before all that
      Man you sure do make a lot of assumptions & are way off but nice try !

  6. I love watching the gop swirling in the toilet bowl on their way to hell and their gods.

  7. Trumps new book, “how to become a dictator in four years of less”,will be released just in time for holidays. The forward by Kim Jung in says,” best of luck my friend, your on your way”.

  8. They are embarrassed for letting Trump fool them in front of the world. They helped him destroy thier party and obviously America was not made great again. In many ways we are weaker because of thier lack of action during this thing he called a presidency. There no rats left on this ship.

      Any facts in that drivel moron?

    • Trump supporters love what he is doing. Are you embarrassed the CIA just called out CNN for it’s recent fake news story that Trump jeopardized a US Russian spy? You probably don’t even know about it right? Crawl back under your rock. You people are so misguided and deceived.

  9. QUICK ANSWER: To rig it in favor of Trump.

    • Ari Onassis-Sugen…cut and paste Trumpsheep today?

    • @Cute Little Suzie Bernie is not a member of the Democratic party, he just tried to wiggle in and take over, like Trump did with Republicans

      Hi, Comrade *Dan* I don’t think that eplains why woman beater keith ellison praises Hitlerjugends antifa violence?
      *#DemocratsHaveLostTheirDamnMinds** **#PunchCardIntelligence*

    • @H A Whyte He’s right.
      Look it up.
      The CIA said in a statement that CNN’s “misguided analysis” was “inaccurate”.
      The spy was pulled but not because they feared Trump was going to blow his or her cover, like CNN reported.
      They (CNN) get a few pertinent facts with no context and than proceed to spin it to fit their narrative, knowing full well that the DoJ and intelligence agencies usually don’t contradict them.
      Usually, they let the public run with whatever speculation they want.
      Lately, you’ve seen them correcting the record more frequently and it looks real bad for MSM when they do.

  10. BECAUSE. I’M A MUNCHO MUNCHO MAN.

  11. trump and his gaggle of idiots are not even Republicans anymore so why is everybody still calling them that??

    Some democracy we have. Both parties behave like they own us.

  13. 9 out of 10 base supporters love him. But it’s not a cakewalk….. Good job CNN lol

  14. *I love watching the gop swirling in the toilet bowl on their way to hell and their gods.*

    • Hopefully the highly moral spirit cooking democrats do a better job of colluding for their candidate in 2020 then they did in 2016! LMAO!
