Buchanan: A ‘Never Trumper’ Will Never Be GOP Nominee, ‘Bush Republicanism Is Dead’

Tuesday on Sean Hannity’s nationally syndicated radio show, conservative commentator Pat Buchanan explained why he saw those Republicans not supporting GOP nominee Donald Trump for president would not achieve the party’s nomination in the future.
Buchanan pointed out that the Republicans that abandoned Barry Goldwater in 1964 never went on to rise in the party and that Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan who did support Goldwater despite his landslide defeat, went on to become president. That could be a repeat of history according to Buchanan.
“[N]ow I read how moral and great and progressive these guys did who have dumped on Trump and cut him dead,” Buchanan said. “And how they’re going to do really well and they’re the rebuilders of the party – I really don’t think so. I don’t think guys – when you’re at Gettysburg and you lost Gettysburg that the guys that weren’t there or that knocked you are the ones that whom you elevate and honor and reward. I think that all these folks that have abandoned Trump – I don’t think any of them will ever be nominated as president of the United States.” READ MORE
