Trump Will Pledge Not To Run As 3rd Party Candidate

I just find it hard to take him at his word.

I'll believe this when I see it:

Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump will likely rule out a third-party bid for the White House on Thursday, CNN reported late Wednesday night.

Trump will meet with Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus in New York City on Thursday, a day after the RNC began asking Republican candidates to sign a pledge to support the eventual GOP nominee and not run an Independent bid.

CNN, citing unnamed sources, says “all signs indicate” Trump will sign the pledge, but cautioned that Trump’s unpredictable history means nothing is guaranteed yet.

The RNC’s pledge is thought to be largely aimed at Trump, who has refused to rule out an Independent run if he loses the GOP nomination race.

Ah, he'll have an exit strategy. "I said if they were fair to me, and they weren't!"
