Paul Ryan Floats Idea of Suing the Man he Endorses for President

Paul Ryan Floats Idea of Suing the Man he Endorses for President

Apple (AAPL) has ruled out supporting or funding this year's Republican National Convention, Politico reports, citing sources familiar with the matter, who say the tech giant is against Donald Trump's controversial stances about women, immigrants, and minorities.

He may be the Republican Party's presumptive nominee, but one Colorado delegate says she'll never vote for Donald Trump. "These are the most dishonest people, not all of them, but I watched CNN yesterday knowing it can't happen and then, 'Breaking news there will be this and that at the convention!' I beat the hell out of them", Trump said. Some Republicans are pushing to change convention rules in the hopes of possibly denying Trump the party's nomination.

Trump has won enough bound delegates in the primaries to claim the nomination, but those delegates could themselves change the rules at the convention and vote for someone else.

Trump's comments to cheering followers in a Cirque du Soleil theater at the Treasure Island resort came as top Republicans are fretting - some in public - that his recent inflammatory remarks about Latinos and Muslims could endanger GOP prospects not only for the White House but for Congress and other races, in the November election.

Trump blasted the attempts in a statement to The Post, reminding that in the 2016 primaries he won more votes than any Republican candidate in history. "Otherwise, I'll just keep doing what I'm doing".

Yet Trump is staffing in NY, but not in OH, and, instead of focusing on the swing states, one of the Trump aligned super PACs is seen to be squandering money in national cable TV markets, instead of in local markets where it might make a difference. (RNC chairperson) Reince Priebus, a very good guy, he said it's the most ridiculous thing he's ever heard'.

Pressed on whether it bothered him that Ryan was not pushing fellow Republicans to back him, Trump objected, "I don't know that that's what he's saying". While speaking at his campaign rally in Last Vegas on Saturday, the tycoon threatened to stop fundraising for the party if the Republicans do not rally around him. "This is a very unique nominee".

Polling this week showed Trump's negative ratings, already high, spiked again after briefly tapering off in May.

Jeb Bush's brother, former president George W. Bush, has taken to the fundraising circuit on behalf of Senate candidates.

"But I feel a responsibility institutionally as the speaker of the House that I should not be leading some chasm in the middle of our party", he added.
