U.S. election news: GOP leaders make last ditch effort to derail Trump's success after Super Tuesday


Donald Trump emerged triumphant during the GOP presidential race last Super Tuesday. Unfortunately, the impressive turn out from the voters did not translate to his co-party leaders and members.

“If this was anybody else as a front-runner, there’d be people right now saying ‘Let’s all rally around the front-runner.’ That will never happen with Donald Trump,” Republican presidential candidate and Florida senator, Marco Rubio told Yahoo News. More so, he said that what is happening is actually the contrary.

New York Times, on the other hand, reports that Rubio, together with another Republican presidential candidate, Ted Cruz, joined forces in trying to turn the odds against Trump. Both politicians clearly stated that shall Trump win the Republican stamp and go on to represent the party in the upcoming November elections, he will only lead the party to a historic defeat. Cruz pointed out Trump’s 2008 monetary donation to Hillary Clinton’s 2008 bid.

On top of Rubio and Cruz, Mitt Romney also joined in the cause to disrupt Trump’s road to being the Republicans standard bearer.

“Think of Donald Trump’s personal qualities, the bullying, the greed, the showing off, the misogyny, the absurd third grade theatrics,” Romney, who failed to capture the support of the Republicans in his 2012 bid for White House, said.

“We have long referred to him as ‘The Donald.’ He’s the only person in America to whom we have added an article before his name. It wasn’t because he had attributes we admired,” he added.

Trump, on the other hand, does not seem to mind all the people trying to pull him down the ladder. Instead, he even said that he is all for unity for the party.

“I am a unifier,” the 69-year-old businessman said.

“I would love to see the Republican Party and everybody get together and unify, and when we unify, there’s nobody that’s going to beat us,” he added.
