Why Republicans Won’t Renounce Trump
To Trump, it's "common sense" that a judge would use his official power to settle a (presumed) personal grievance. Trump would do that himself in a heartbeat. He had all but threatened to get back at the judge, if he's president: "What Judge Curiel is doing is a total disgrace, OK? But we’ll come back in November. Wouldn’t that be wild if I’m president and I come back to do a civil case? Where everybody likes it. OK. This is called life, folks.”
That's what's so scary about giving Trump such powers. And remember how George W. Bush avenged Saddam Hussein's attempt on his father's life, by invading Iraq? Trump is making enemies -- real and perceived -- left and right. If he pursues them all using presidential powers, what will the world look like?
Is this why Republicans won't renounce him -- they fear what he'll do to them if he's elected?
