Trump has been giving me nightmares lately. No, I don't think he will win the GOP nomination or ever become President. Problem is twofold. First, Trump has sucked all the oxygen and media coverage from the GOP race, which is a major issue since the 2016 GOP field is the strongest since 1980. Rather than hearing about meaningful government reform proposals by Jeb Bush or Rubio's tax plan, we are subjected to endless media coverage on this buffoon and his whacky self-aggrandizing statements. Second, Trump has given strong indications that he will run as an independent if he does not win the GOP nomination. This all but guarantees that Hillary will become our next President. The mere thought of this sends chills down my spine and makes me fear for this great country.
We all know that Trump is not going anywhere. What should the GOP do about this? They have to figure out a way to convince him to not run as a 3rd party candidate by appeasing him, without giving him the nomination or further tainting the GOP's image among crucial voting blocs.
This country can't afford another democratic presidency lest we transform into a European style welfare state. Stop Trump and get behind Bush/Rubio/Walker.
