GOP Rule-Makers Plan to Strip Donald Trump of Nomination at the Convention

Donald Trump has taken a particularly hard beating from the mainstream press this week. After a much-maligned response to the Orlando terrorist attack, establishment Republicans are attempting to cash in on the negative press in order to grow support for their own anti-Trump agenda at the Republican convention.

Given the strife, a growing group of anti-Trump delegates is convinced that enough like-minded Republicans will band together in the next month to change party rules and allow delegates to vote for whomever they want at the convention, regardless of who won state caucuses or primaries.

The new push is being run by people who can actually make changes to party rules, rather than by pundits and media figures who have been pining for a Trump alternative. Many of the delegates involved supported Sen. Ted Cruz (Tex.) in the primary race but say they are not taking cues from any of Trump’s vanquished opponents.

“This literally is an ‘Anybody but Trump’ movement,” said Kendal Unruh, a Republican delegate from Colorado who is leading the campaign. “Nobody has any idea who is going to step in and be the nominee, but we’re not worried about that. We’re just doing that job to make sure that he’s not the face of our party.”

It's fitting that the so-called conservative Republicans in charge of the party are taking cues from the liberal media in order to dump Trump. They care more about remaining the kingmakers of their own party than they do with conservative values — not to mention democracy.
