Pressure is mounting for Donald Trump to drop out of the presidential race as he loses endorsements and support from key Republican figures following the release of a tape where he not only talked about trying to sleep with a married woman months after he was married to his third wife, Melania, but also joked about committing sexual assault and getting away with it because he’s famous.
While Trump said on Saturday that he is not leaving the race, he did indicate in June that if someone offered him $5 billion he would consider it.
While there is no indication that anyone is making such an offer, reports have come out that the Republican National Committee is suspending all of their “Victory” operations, the operation put into place to help elect the GOP nominee, Donald Trump.
POLITICO reports on an email that sent out to vendors involved with the “Victory” operation that indicates all projects are on hold.
In an email from the RNC to a victory program mail vendor, with the subject line “Hold on all projects,” the committee asked the vendor to “put a hold” on mail production.
“Please put a hold/stop on all mail projects right now. If something is in production or print it needs to stop. Will update you when to proceed,” Lauren Toomey, a staffer in the RNC’s political department, wrote in an email that was obtained by POLITICO.
What exactly does this mean? Is this an indication that efforts to oust Trump as the nominee, convincing him to leave the race, are true?
Only time will tell.
