Donald Trump responded for the first time on Sunday to a New York Times story that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell allegedly said Republicans will drop the front-runner “like a hot rock” if he is the party’s nominee, and the real estate tycoon warned that the GOP is going to have “a big problem.”

 

McConnell was said to have also laid out a plan that would allow GOP senators to do even further, as seen here.

 

The candidate was asked about the story during an appearance Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” and he fell back on the loyalty pledge he signed promising to support the eventual nominee and not to run as a third-party candidate.

 

“The pledge is a two-way street, and if it’s not that way they’re going to have a problem, a big problem with me,” Trump said, before warning that “we have tremendous amounts of people.”

 

Host Jake Tapper pointed to the hashtag #NeverTrump, which trended throughout the day Saturday, noting that rival Marco Rubio participated in the effort, and asked Trump if these efforts violated the Republican Party’s loyalty pledge.

 

“Totally,” the real estate tycoon said. “If they want to play that game, I can play that game much more than they can, and I have a lot more people than they do.”

 

Now would be a good time to stock up on popcorn.
