Back in in September of 2015, the RNC asked the 2016 presidential primary candidates to sign a pledge to support the GOP nominee and refuse to run as a third party candidate.

Many believe this was a Reince Priebus effort aimed at Trump for being so unpredictable, but now that he is the last man standing, Trump wants all those rivals that have refused to endorse him to be banished from running for public office ever again.

During Wednesday's rally in Bangor, Maine, Donald Trump took aim at his former adversary's and said, "I have guys out there, they are really sore losers...Just remember this. They signed a pledge saying they will abide. Saying they will back the candidate of the party. And now they sit back, the pledge is out there and the press doesn't even go after them on that. They broke their word, in my opinion, they should never be allowed to run for public office again because what they did was disgraceful."

This man is the poster child for being a petty and vindictive baby.

So far I believe only Ted Cruz, John Kasich, Rick Santorum and George Pataki (nobody cares about Pataki) haven't committed one way or the other to support Donald, while Jeb Bush and Lindsey Graham have said they will not support Trump, ever.
