During a town hall meeting on CNN Donald Trump admitted that he no longer commits to supporting the Republican nominee for president, something that he had promised at the outset of the primary season.

After meeting with the head of the Republican party in September, Reince Priebus, Trump signed a pledge he signed to support whosoever will be picked as the party’s candidate. Now, when asked on CNN by moderator Anderson Cooper whether Trump intends to adhere to that promise, Trump answered, “No, I don’t.”

“We’ll see who it is,” Trump added.

Trump believes he was treated unfairly by the Republican National Committee as well as by the GOP. He said he still is not sure what will happen at the Republican convention, if they will support him, or rather try and take away the nomination.

Trump added that he also does not need Ted Cruz on his side.

“I’m not asking for his support,” Trump said.

“I don’t want his support; I don’t need his support; I want him to be comfortable,” Trump said, referring to Cruz.
