Republican presumptive nominee Donald Trump blasted his party’s leaders on Wednesday, saying they are holding him back and that he might have to “do it alone.”
“You know the Republicans — honestly folks, our leaders have to get tougher,” he said at a rally in Atlanta. “This is too tough to do it alone, but you know what I think I’m going to be forced to.”
“Our leaders have to get a lot tougher,” he continued. “And be quiet. Just please be quiet. Don’t talk. Please be quiet. Just be quiet to the leaders because they have to get tougher, they have to get sharper, they have to get smarter. We have to have our Republicans either stick together or let me just do it by myself.”
Trump's comments come amid signs that GOP leaders are increasingly worried about being tied to his campaign.
