Seems like the RNC only changes rules to keep Donald out of the primary. Do you think they will make this exception for him?
Rudy Giuliani said he thinks Trump can get to the required 1,237 delegates needed to secure the nomination on the first ballot. If the billionaire doesn’t get there but is close, the Republican National Committee should change the rules to give it to him, Giuliani said Tuesday.
“If he is within 20 or 30 within the nomination, they have to give it to him,” the former New York City mayor and Trump supporter told CNN’s “New Day.”
“That’s not the rule,” CNN host Chris Cuomo responded.
“I know, but they change other rules, so why not change that rule?” Giuliani asked. ”Just because it is a rule, doesn’t mean it’s fair.”
Giuliani, who has said he will vote for Trump in Tuesday’s primary, said his support could be characterized as an endorsement, though he maintained that he was in no way involved with the campaign.
But that did not keep him from doling out advice and hinting at the Republican front-runner’s looming attacks on Hillary Clinton should the two face off in November.
“Go back to Arkansas, right? Little Rock, I mean going back to Arkansas when Bill was governor, when Bill was governor and she was at the Rose Law Firm. I mean, is there a consistent pattern here,” Giuliani said in a Fox News appearance.
Giuliani then referred to the Whitewater scandal of the 1990s, the 2012 Benghazi attack and attempting to link Bill Clinton’s paid appearance to UBS to allegations that Hillary Clinton lobbied the federal government for lenience.
