Trump’s aides are working to “rig the system in their favor” to ensure his victory in the Republican primaries

Trump’s strategists are reportedly pushing for new rules that would make it easier for the former president to win GOP primaries, Politico reported.

The ominous words

Trump campaign senior adviser Chris LaCivita told Politico, “He who controls the rules controls the process. You control the process, you win.” LaCivita added, “We’re basically guarding our flanks. We’re stopping any monkey business if they want to do it like Cruz did in 2016.”

The reaction

This prompted a reaction from Ken Cuccinelli, a former Trump aide who later helped DeSantis. Cuccinelli said, “They’re looking to rig the system in their favor. They’re going in and strong-arming the [GOP] committees.”

Ken Cuccinelli, former AG of Virginia, who worked as the senior official performing the duties of the Deputy Secretary of Homeland Security, said, “He is against rigged elections when they hurt him.”

Cuccinelli, who worked under the Trump administration, added, “He doesn’t appear to be against rigging elections to help him.”

Trump’s team behind the scenes

Politico reporter Rachel Bade alleged that Trump’s loyalists are “working behind the scenes” while “quietly reaching out to allies” to “adjust” the rules to secure Trump’s victory in the primaries.

Stealing the nomination

The trigger was a post by far-right Laura Loomer, who claimed that someone wanted to steal Trump’s nomination. The ripple effect was put into place. 

Conservatives rarely speak up

The conservative commentator Margaret Hoover slammed the GOP and went as far as claiming they were becoming a “wholly owned subsidiary of Trump, Inc.” She added, “The hard part is the RNC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Trump, Inc., is making it impossible for anyone to get on stage in a fair way.”

Trump “cares more about himself”

Hoover continued, “You have to make a moral argument that this man cares more about himself and his own narcissism than the Constitution of the United States than our national security secrets.”

A loyalty pledge

The party asked candidates to pledge loyalty, and RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel spoke about this on CNN, “One of the requirements right now to get on the first debate stage in August is to sign a loyalty pledge, vowing to support the eventual nominee.” According to numerous polls, despite the indictments, Trump has around 30 points over DeSantis, so essentially, the candidates are pledging loyalty to Trump.

McDaniel further defended this decision, “We can’t have division. We can’t have people get on the debate stage who are then going to going to come out and say, I’m not going to support the eventual nominee. We have to do that. We can’t win without every Republican and independents. So, in order to get on that debate stage, you should pledge to the voters that you’re going to commit to beat Biden and support the nominee the voters choose.”

What will GOP candidates do?

Trump recently went after former VP Mike Pence. “WOW, it’s finally happened!” Trump wrote in a Truth Social post. “Liddle’ Mike Pence, a man who was about to be ousted as Governor Indiana until I came along and made him VP, has gone to the Dark Side.”

He continued, “I never told a newly embolded … Pence to put me above the Constitution or that Mike was ‘too honest.’ He’s delusional, and now he wants to show he’s a tough guy,” Trump added. DeSantis and Christie made their stance somewhat clear, but the game keeps changing.
