Trump Demands Major Changes to RNC
Amid GOP Debate Plans Former President Donald Trump is advocating for significant changes to the Republican National Committee (RNC) if it continues with its primary debates, which he has consistently chosen to skip.
In a post on Truth Social, Trump celebrated recent poll results, boasting about his lead and using disparaging nicknames for his competitors, including Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley. He highlighted his commanding lead in a Harvard CAPS-Harris Poll survey, which indicated that 67 percent of GOP voters support him for the Republican presidential primary, compared to 9 percent for DeSantis and 8 percent for Haley.
Biotech entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy received 5 percent support, while former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie garnered 3 percent.
The poll also suggested that Trump is ahead of President Biden in a hypothetical head-to-head matchup, leading 48 percent to 41 percent.
Trump criticized the RNC for spending on debates that he claims have historically low ratings and reiterated unfounded claims about the 2020 election being stolen. He called for an immediate overhaul of the RNC if they proceed with the debates.
