Priebus: RNC still stands with Trump

by ALEX ISENSTADT, KYLE CHENEY and SHANE GOLDMACHER | Politico  |  published on October 11, 2016

Reince PriebusWith Donald Trump’s campaign in a historic free fall, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus declared Monday that the party is standing behind its presidential nominee.

“First of all, I want to make it very clear that the RNC is in full coordination with the Trump campaign, and we have a great relationship with them. If there’s any takeaway from this call, that’s the takeaway,” Priebus told RNC members during an emergency conference call, which POLITICO obtained a recording of.

“Nothing has changed in regard with our relationship and we remain very much involved and together in all levels of making these decisions with how to run this operation across this country.”

“Everything is on course,” Priebus said. “I want you to understand that.”

The call came amid mounting questions about whether the Republican Party was preparing to abandon Trump amid revelations that he had once bragged about sexually assaulting women. On Monday morning, House Speaker Paul Ryan announced that he would no longer defend Trump and would instead focus on protecting the majority in his congressional chamber. The announcement represented an extraordinary break as the highest-ranking elected Republican said he was no longer standing with the Republican nominee.

    It is the RINOS that have destroyed this country!! PAUL RYAN IS THE WORST OFFENDER!!! TRUMP IS GOING TO WIN BIG!!! GET RID OF RYAN, MCCAIN, HATCH, LEE, AYOTTE, AND ANYONE ELSE WHO IS SAYING THAT THEY WILL NOT BACK TRUMP!!!
    HANG SEPARATELY OR HANG TOGETHER!!! That was as true for our Founding Fathers as it is FOR US TODAY!!! Give us liberty or give us death!! We will surely die as a country if HILDEBITCH gets elected!!
    PEOPLE EVERYWHERE GET OUT AND GET TRUMP’S MESSAGE OUT!! THE TIME TO DO SOMETHING IS RIGHT NOW!!!

  • Wildshot

    This election is reminding me of the 1856 and 1860 elections when the Whig Party was destroyed and the Republican Party came into power and the Whigs faded away. I fear now the Republicans might be the one to just fade away because they are all so selfish for their own wishes and not work for the best of the party. In our two party system never has a third party ever won a presidential election. Supporting a third party is like playing Russian roulette with a gun that has a cylinder with 100 chambers and putting 99 bullets in leaving one chamber empty. Could you survive such a game, sure but there is a 99 out of a 100 chance that when you pull the trigger there will be a bang that you never hear. I see all kinds of schemes about how third parties can win but in two hundred years it has not happened so I wish we would all be realistic. Republicans, I know there is only 1 out of 24 chance your original choice for president is not the candidate, but there is more at stake than who is president. Makeup of congress, 1 to 4 to 5 five Supreme Court Justice and who knows how many lower court justices, ambassadors, bureaucratic department heads that make more rules and regulations and set more standards that affect us, and as with this last administration executive orders that have changed our life styles. Lets get together and make the whole thing work. We all need to give some and get our people elected at the bottom of the ticket and preferably hang on to both the executive and the legislative branches of government.

  • Wildshot

    Get the bed wetters back on board and I will be happy. I have had seven requests for contributions from the bed wetters and have rejected them all with a note to most of them explaining why. I am sorry, I know this will hurt the party but they have hurt it more by joining the bed wetters and not supporting the parties nominee. Everyone, get back on board, eat a little crow and lets turn this to a victory.

  • dino digger

    RNC stands with Mr Trump, they sure don’t act like it. The VP elect was a no show, along with the Speaker of the House Paul Ryan. Dosent sound like support to me. The RNC has been disgusting towards Mr Trump!!!

  • Arbie Viau

    The locker room “boy talk” by the Donald, doesn’t even compare to what Hillary is guilty of, and you RINO’s that are so opposed to Trump your sins against the American people doesn’t compare to what YOU are guilty of either; and we the people know YOUR sins very well. So, acting so pious is laughable. And Reince, if you are still standing with Trump, then why don’t you help Trump? He’s been abused so much for the past l 1/2 years, and you just sit back and do nothing to help him. First, you can get rid of the man Paul Ryan for the release of that 11 year old tape, that I and the rest of us don’t give a rip about it. You are all sinners and no one has released a tape on you, but tomorrow is another day, isn’t it? Truthfully, I’m sick to death with all of you pious no-do-getters.

        Elaine, Thanks for supporting Trump!

  • Tyronne Shoelaces

    F*ck Ryan the RINO. The media sure jumps all over Trumps words from 11 years ago, but ignores Bill’s actions against women. I’ve heard women talk worse then that about men when they’re with their friends. What’s the big deal, it’s locker room talk.

    It’s the RINO Paul Ryan who is destroying the Republican Party. We don’t need pansies like Paul Ryan in the Republican Party. He DID NOT oppose any of Obama’s demands. Why is he opposing Trump? It’s because Paul Ryan has an eye for 2020 presidential election.

  • Dennis

    These RINO’s, especially PAUL RYAN, should get the same treatment the RNC gave to Dave Agema! NOT A DAMN THING LESS!!!!

    WASHINGTON – The Republican National Committee’s top officers formally censured Michigan
    member Dave Agema today for what they called “harmful rhetoric” and
    demanded his resignation.

    National
    Party Chairman Reince Priebus announced the censure of Agema, a former
    state representative from Grandville, who has been roundly criticized
    for remarks and posts on social media considered insensitive to gays,
    Muslims and blacks.

    “Agema’s
    history of harmful and offensive rhetoric has no place in our party,
    which is why the RNC Executive Committee acted in the swiftest way
    possible to avoid giving him a platform,” Priebus said tonight as the
    RNC’s Winter Meeting was set to get under way outside San Diego.

  • Askjrsk

    How nice. The GOP chooses to support the vote choices. At least some. Paula Ryan isn’t she can’t stand on a stage. Mittens still has her issues as ske comes and goes out of hiding. A real man stands. Donald Trump has proven under crisis he walk through it not intimidation not shamed and once again comes out the winner. Hillary I’m sure hurried home to her meds and her bed and booze. Hiding until the next debate.
    Trump a real man a real leader.

  • justinwachin

    At this point there are very few things the RNC can do about Donald Trump. I think Reince realizes that. Within a month the election will be over. There is a good possibility that Priebus and the RNC leadership will begin preparing for another open primary in 2020. Of course, Trump’s fortunes could change between now and election day. Hillary has seen her share of scandals. Another one right before the election could take her support down right before election day.

    McConnell and Ryan would do well to devote their energies on the races in their houses of Congress. If the Republicans can maintain control of the Senate they can block Hillary’s more radical judicial appointments. A solid Republican Congress will force Hillary to try to work with the Republicans if she hopes to get anything accomplished as president. Hopefully Donald will be able to win the election, but he has already acknowledged there are more audio clips that have yet to be released.

  • Rodney Steward

    I just don’t see Trump’s campaign in a giant free fall, all his speeches are standing room only while Hellary’s are never half full! The media push, and the polls are BS in my book! Plan and simple, the system is afraid of losing their backroom deals by closing the borders, and the Southern being the big money maker for these political whores!

    • Askjrsk

      It’s Hillary and the Clinton machine hoping to manipulate and intimidate. Look at Paula Ryan speaker, it sure worked on her. she’s so scared.’

  • Tiger

    For the RINO to jump on this 11 year old tape, taken without Trump’s knowledge which is illegal is nothing more than an excuse to do what they did from the start, stop Trump because they know their good times are over when he hits the Oval Office.

    What they and all are saying is we never, even as a young man with hormones raging said anything like that. BS. The choice is simple either you want the same and worse vote for Hellary.

    So, after all the disclosures and after reading Hillary’s tax plan, which is guaranteed to kill the family farms in the Midwest and CA, I cannot vote for Hillary! Anyone in a farming community who votes for her is voting against their friends and the farmers in their community. A 67% death tax will deal a death blow to family farms, and fits right in with the UN Agenda 21, which seeks to depopulate our breadbasket, start food riots and destroy the West. Obama has allowed 2.5 million illegal aliens in his terms to come in, and vote in American elections. Time to Take America Back with the Trump Pence ticket in 2016.

    • Askjrsk

      Who could vote for crazy goofy Hillary? Except Mittens and speaker wannabe Paula Ryan.

  • Wayne Biszick

    Trump pointing to the sins of Bill Cllnton, I imagine, is like Musselini pointing to Hitler and saying he did the same thing only worse.
    I wonder, has Mr. Priebus thought about the fact that his stand could very well spell the demise of the Republican Party, on his watch?

    The republican party has cut it’s own throat to the spine on this one… The PEOPLE clearly stated from the start who they wanted and that was TRUMP ! The RNC, RINOS and lifetime “elite” politicians have gone against who the Republican VOTERS chose from day one. They took it upon themselves to tell US who we want. It is NOT going to change our minds as far as who WE picked. It IS going to change our mind as to which party we will be members of after the election. A see a MASS EXODUS from the Republican Party on the horizon, not moving to Democrat but to somewhere between… And all those who scoffed and turned their backs on the Republican voters and put their opinion above ours… Pack your bags, you are finished ! After this election, I will never vote Republican OR Democrat again…..Trump is not perfect, but he is FAR better than Hillary. Do the words “DON’T TREAD ON ME” ring a bell.

    • Askjrsk

      That’s the facts! Then they have the scared little girl who fold like a cheap lawn chair. Mittens and Paula Ryan, they are so scared they’re back in hiding.

    94 million Reclaimed jobs, a balanced budget, and safer borders are counting on Trump. Or with Hitlery – we continue to circle the drain with endless handouts to those who can’t find a job or do not want to work at their very youthful ages. And forget your freedoms and personal defense devices to protect yourselves and your families. AND forget any strengthening of our military, defeating ISIS (which Obama/Hitlery both created) and any tough foreign policy to put all the nuclear Genies back in the bottle. Count on more social experimentation, invasion of your kids’ restrooms/gym shower rooms by pedophiles and other predators with Sharia and Mohammedanism being forced upon school kids so they become good little cultists, being brainwashed about a fake deity and girls being forced into permanent social and sexual servitude, while ‘justice’ is served with big rocks and swords! Do you want peace through strength or more sucking up to our adversaries while they get all the $$ advantages in foreign trade while more criminals and illegals invade America, forever erasing and great cultural identity of what it once was – a place where people could chase their dreams, and occasionally make them come true! do you want a paranoid, shrill Hillary sending government troops into your home because she knows you did not vote for her and have everyone around her fear for their lives, while she continues to stroke out with seizures and has a Presidency propped up by Great Healthcare THAT YOU WILL NEVER SEE? With Trump, how about a rich, plentiful job market where eligible American Citizens are at the front of the line and one can easily go between jobs should a career change be desired, rather than be pushed aside by an illegal or someone brought into the country because they were cheaper to hire? And speaking of illegals and forced ‘refugees” quickly and quietly spirited into your once peaceful town: don’t you want those who should not be here and do not want to assimilate deported and your streets made safer? There is a lot riding on this and the future of America is too important for would be Trump voters sitting on the sidelines, because they may not get all of what they want, instead of NONE of what they want.

    • Rock

      You are 100% correct, VERY well stated and true. The Republican politicians should be MADE to read what you wrote. THEY are their own worst enemy’s, and now many of their own party’s voters worst enemy’s also.

    • McFerguson

      All excellent points, MJ.. One you may have overlooked is Hillary’s eagerness to federalize our nation’s policemen. Meaning the U.S. Attorney General would prescribe police regulations and establish policing policy in every state from Sea-to-Shining Sea. Can you imagine another huge federal government agency headed by some democrat weenie call the shots for every little police department in each of the 50-states of America (Obama says there are 57! Perhaps he’s going to co-opt Kenya and a few other radical Islamic States.)

            Are all Earls this repulsive stupid or is it contained to this one? The victims of Clintons sexual abuse have long been ignored by the mainstream media. Hillary by calling these victims publicly ” bimbos “, hiring private detectives to discredit them and enabling Billy Clinton in this behavior is abominable.
            And for jackass Earl Rogerson to make light of it is dangerous. Certainly hope these victims are given more time and coverage to help them heal.

Once the Establishment is thrown out of controlling our government with Liberal RINO and DEM Puppets there will be no need to have RINOs.
