Trump Rips Virginia GOP for Demanding Loyalty Oath for Primary Voters

Donald_Trump_(8567813820)_(2)If Donald Trump isn’t defending one of his controversial statements, he seems to be complaining about Republican leaders and how unfair the political process is to him and his supporters.

Yesterday, the real estate mogul took to Twitter to blast the Virginia Republican Party for setting a rule that will require March 1 primary voters to sign a “statement of affiliation” to the GOP. There is a possibility that Trump’s frustration on this is due to how his supporters are mostly a mix of independents and hard-right conservatives who are disenchanted by the Republican Party:

Virginia voters are not required to register with a particular party, according to CBS. However, in a decision approved by the State Board of Elections, the Virginia Republican Party is permitted to have people fill out a form on arrival that includes the provision that “my signature below indicates that I am a Republican.”

While Trump has recently denied that he was considering it, he has repeatedly threatened to make an independent run if he feels unsatisfied with the party’s fair treatment of him.
