Syndicated columnist and right wing political analyst Charles Krauthammer told Special Report on Fox News that he does not believe Donald Trump would run third party for the White House. His reasoning? Trump’s ego.
The Daily Caller reports:
Krauthammer explained that Trump was, â€œKicking open the doors of a saloon is the way I see him talking right there. Look, he, what he is saying, â€˜That pledge isnâ€™t worth the paper itâ€™s written on because I will decide if the terms have been observed. Itâ€™s not going to be an outside committee, itâ€™s going to be me and heâ€™ll decide.’â€
â€œI suspect though, that his egoâ€¦ would restrain him from running as a third party,â€ Krauthammer argued, â€œassuming he doesnâ€™t win the nomination because is going, itâ€™s going to be a lot harder than he thinks and there will be a bar, sort of an invisible bar and I think thatâ€™s going to be the Ross Perot number of 19 percent.â€
â€œI donâ€™t think he would come anywhere near that in a general election. And that will be his mark on history and I donâ€™t think he likes to be seen as a loser. The Republican nomination is his shot and I think thatâ€™s what he wants to go for,â€ Krauthammer suggested.
