Cornered Trump Could Go Nuclear At Debate, Defies Calls To Quit Race Over Vulgar Video

Source: Huffington Post

Republican Donald Trump on Sunday struck a defiant tone in the face of calls for him to abandon the U.S. presidential race, attacking prominent Republicans and saying he had “tremendous support” despite a storm over his vulgar comments about women.

On a day in which Trump was due to debate Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton a month ahead of the Nov. 8 election, Trump took to social media to try to squelch any speculation that he could leave the race.

“Tremendous support (except for some Republican leadership”). Thank you,” Trump wrote on Twitter.

“So many self-righteous hypocrites. Watch their poll numbers - and elections - go down!” Trump tweeted, apparently referring to Republican lawmakers seeking re-election who have withdrawn their support for him over a 2005 video that emerged on Friday.

Trump is trying to dictate the agenda at this town hall, roiling
everybody and anything in his path. Moderators cannot allow
him to get away with it.

6. Trump is appearing vindictive and nasty

not sure the general public will like that, though Trumpians will

I'm not sure the wisdom of dredging up the past, President Bill Clinton
was exonerated, it's settled history except in Trump's mind

Raking a woman's marriage over the coals for one's own gain ... not
an ounce of civility

Presidential debates as Jerry Springer Show

This event should not be held at all, reminds me of final Carter-Reagan
debate. Some said Carter would have won if he hadn't participated.
No opinion here, never watched it

7. Particularly from the leader of the birther lie.

Total low life. Hillary is ready. This will backfire big-time.
