RNC’s Redfield Says Trump Is Destroying The GOP, Demands Action From Priebus

Redfield, left, Trump, right

A top Republican National Committee official is demanding action from RNC Chair Reince Priebus over concerns with the Donald Trump Presidential campaign.

Holland Redfield, an RNC Committeeman from the Virgin Islands, said recently that the party is being almost “terrorized” by Trump. Redfield believes the future of the party is at stake.

According to Raw Story:

“A Republican National Committee official warned that Donald Trump and his supporters were destroying the GOP.

Holland Redfield, an RNC committeeman who represents the Virgin Islands, is shown on video recorded at a closed-door breakfast meeting Thursday urging party chairman Reince Priebus to stand up to the GOP frontrunner, reported Politico.

“You can argue with me, but we’re almost terrorized as members of our party,” Redfield said. “‘Shut up, toe the line, embrace each other, and let’s go forward’ — I understand that, but there is a limit to loyalty. I am loyal to this party by speaking out on these very issues.”

The article notes Redfield was bothered by Trump’s talk of a possible Independent Presidential campaign:

“As a party we owe it to ourselves to speak up, and not let the tail wag the dog, and not let someone say, all of a sudden, ‘If you don’t play my game, then I’m running as an independent,’” Redfield said.”

  1. NOT SURE WHAT YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND. WE DO NOT WANT MONEY PEOPLE TRYING TO TAKE OVER OUR LIVES. TRUMP IS THE ONLY ONE THAT MAKES SENSE. HE REALIZES HOW THE MIDDLE PEOPLE ARE HURTING. HE REALIZES WE TO MAKE OUR COUNTRY SAFE AND CREATE JOBS.

  2. The HORROR ..Gad ..a man who WONT let the party bosses pull his strings!! Where the heck does Trump think he is AMERICA?

  3. Redfield should crawl back into his hole! Trump is an american! That gives him the right to campaign and win! Free America Mr.Trump! Don’t let these liars stand in your way! Mr. Trump isn’t terroristic! F*****g idiot!

  4. First of all which star on the flag represents the Virgin Islands??????? Ummhmmm and secondly the government of the United States is owned by the people, for the PEOPLE of the PEOPLE we are not communist like your little island may be…so stick a pickle in it and twirl .
    PS we have the 1st amendment…want us all to quit the GOP or what??????

  5. TRUMP IS A THREAT..TO ALL THE CORRUPT
    ” POLITICIANS” RUNNING THIS COUNTRY THEY KNOW HE IS HONEST AND CANT BE BOUGHT

    • That is exactly why he probably won’t be the nominee. They know Trump can’t be controlled. He is a threat to the establishment. Much like JFK was. Trump isn’t a JFK but the establishment couldn’t control JFK either.

  6. That is pretty close to Renfield, the bug eating minion of Dracula. The shoe fits! The GOP should be destroyed along with the DNC.

  7. Trump, even more so than Cruz, is demonstrating what the Republican base desperately wants. A leader that believes in America. A person that can negotiate and strike deals that are beneficial to the country.

    Not a sound bite and then caving into liberal policies the way Rubio caved on the recent budget deal, that gave liberals everything that they wanted with nothing in return.

  8. One can only *hope* that the future of the GOPe is at stake!

    After the way the CoC, RNC, GOPe have sold out the US Middle-Class, they certainly deserve a “stake.” Hopefully, it will be through the chest to keep the scummy bloodsuckers from rising from their graves anytime soon.

  9. After its performance during the Years of Obama, the GOP deserves to be destroyed. When the new party rises from the ashes, the current Establishment will hopefully find themselves on the bench.

  10. Here’s what you do Holland if Trump wins the GOP presidential nominaction…you do exactly what the leadership has told its grass-root members to do since Reagan, simply go to the polls and “hold your nose” and vote for the Donald.

  11. Gee, it was the RNC that all but demanded Trump sign a pledge saying he wouldn’t run as an independent.. Now they’re b*t*hing because he come further than they thought he would. What Redfield seems to have missed here is that the Republican Party was in big trouble before Trump came on the scene. They’ve spent the past seven years caving into just about everything the D’s wanted even after they won the majority of seats in the Senate.

    Personally I hope Trump goes all the way making it necessary for the R’s to do something that will stiffen up their backbone and pump up their cajones. I’m getting tired of backing a mostly dead conservative party. All of these RINO’s seem to have forgotten that the way to true success is through hard work which is a word the left can’t even spell anymore.

    • Your right. They don’t understand, or care, what the people want. All they care about is what is best for them. Not us.

  12. Why are guys like this so clueless? He/they seem to be living on another planet. If the Republican Party as it currently exists is destroyed there are few “real people” who would mourn. In fact, if Trump were to achieve that it would be a great public service Clearly, people like Redfield don’t get why.

    • Seems we’ll get Kasick. He’s a good old boy. Nothing wrong with him. But that’ll definitely mean a Clinton presidency. Could be good for the economy but bad for national security. Same with anyone else.

  13. From the article:

    “…..the party is being almost “terrorized” by Trump. Redfield believes the future of the party is at stake

    …warned that Donald Trump and his supporters were destroying the GOP.”

    Translation: How can we expect to continue our self serving, corrupt, crony capitalism if Trump is elected?

    If Trump destroys the corruption of the liars in GOP, I’m all for it.

  14. Redfield, You’re the problem not Trump.
    I’m a true Republican and I have but one vote. I vote Trump.

    So shut up and cast your vote for Hillary who is another loser.

  15. The “party” cystem smacks of the “former” Soviet Union: putting “the party” first and foremost. Capitalism kicked socialism’s butt…because it is inherently superior to a canned society directed by imbecilic trash like Bury, Hilrod, and that other piece of used food, burning man sanders. If you need a support group to validate your own thoughts, you’re too big of an idiot to manage yourself, not to mention be the President. Has the asspiring to be president xy chromosome packin’ prostitute been doughnated a vote counter from chickago yet? By the contemporaneous steaming pile of a president?

  16. Yeah, another guy whose concern is “the party”, and not “America”. that should tell you all you need to know.

  17. We see through your republican-democrat elephant and donkey act democracy shell game, Redfield, you fat tub of shit!

  18. Trump is “Destroying the GOP?” And not even a mention of the lies used to gain the Senate, to increase representation in the House in 2014? The polarity shift as soon as the votes were counted – not even waiting to be sworn in? Nothing about all the promises, the Obama programs for which funding would be blocked? The GOP destroyed the GOP. Not only that, Trump is their fault. If the promises had been kept, it’s doubtful he would be running. Democrats may not be embittered by betrayal – Republicans are. Especially Conservative Republicans.
