Will There Be Civil War at the Republican Convention?

The Establishment has vowed to stop Donald Trump, but Trump has the minimum number of delegates necessary to secure the nomination for GOP presidential candidate.  Those for, and against, Donald Trump have become targets.

Trump's choice of Indiana Governor Mike Pence has drawn more conservatives towards his campaign.  Newt Gingrich is also in Trump's corner, and has been laying into those Republicans who have refused to unite under the GOP candidate.

Mitt Romney, the 2012 loser to Obama, has been among the loudest voices against Trump.  The establishment is trembling.  Their handle on the power of Washington D.C. is at risk, and they are like a wild animal cornered. . . willing to strike because they have nothing to lose at this point.

The Bush family has also refused to coalesce behind Trump, and none of the members of that family will be at the gavel-fall at the Republican National Convention.

Trump must provide a unifying message, showing that he can be the stable candidate, and the candidate that stands firmly for the Republican platform.

House Speaker Paul Ryan, a politician that was among those who is not a fan of Donald Trump, has reluctantly endorsed Trump.  He was willing to show a little happiness for his decision to get on board when Pence was chosen as the V.P. Candidate, calling Pence a “Reagan-like happy warrior.”
