Following the events that took place during the first two presidential debates, the GOP’s widespread support for Republican Party candidate Donald Trump has started to wane due to his rival Hillary Clinton’s mudslinging strategy. However, earlier this week, Reince Priebus, the chairman of the Republican National Committee, reaffirmed the RNC’s full support for its presidential nominee.
During a recent meeting with members of the RNC, Priebus noted that the committee still stands behind Trump and his campaign. He also told them that the RNC is still closely working with the candidate’s camp in doing whatever it can to win the upcoming election on Nov. 8.
“Nothing has changed in regard with our relationship,” Pence said during the meeting according to CNN. “We are in full coordination with the Trump campaign. We have a great relationship with them. And we are going to continue to work together to make sure he wins in November.”
The RNC organized its meeting a day after the second presidential debate in Washington University. Although Trump appeared to have gained the upper hand during the event, his popularity in the polls got affected after Clinton’s camp released a 2005 recording of him allegedly making inappropriate remarks toward women.
After the recording surfaced, Paul Ryan, the Republican House Speaker, seemingly bailed on his support for Trump by stating that he will no longer defend him. Despite his statement, Ryan did not say anything about taking back his endorsement for Trump.
As expected, the weeks leading up to the election next month is getting filled with dirty tactics to gain the support of voters. Clinton’s latest attack on Trump is a clear example of this, which shows her efforts to try to destabilize her opponent’s party.
But, despite these mudslinging efforts, Trump’s camp remains steadfast by sticking to the important issues that matter and by keeping the support of the Republican Party intact.
