Ron Paul: Trump Will Win Nomination Despite Convention Tricks, but May Face Third-Party Challenger

by | Mar 20, 2016

Speaking Friday with hosts John Berman and Kate Bolduan at CNN, former three-time presidential candidate Ron Paul predicted that shady maneuvers, like the rules changes and replacement of delegates used against Paul at the 2012 Republican National Convention, will be used against Trump at the upcoming 2016 party convention. Paul says, however, that he believes Trump will win the Republican nomination despite such “establishment” efforts.

But, even a Republican National Convention victory may not put an end to Trumps’ troubles from the Republican establishment. Paul says in the interview that he “wouldn’t be surprised” if Trump would then face in the general election a third-party candidate who is “supported by the establishment-type Republicans and those who can’t control Trump.”

Paul is the Chairman and Founder of the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity.
