Trump threatened to leave Republican party and create his own party until he was threatened with financial losses - New book alleges



Former US President, Donald Trump told the Republican National Committee chairman that he was leaving the party to create his own new political party, according to a new book by ABC's Jonathan Karl.


Trump, who had said "he didn't care" about destroying the Republican party, ultimately backed down after party leaders told him they would take actions that could have cost the former president millions of dollars, Karl told ABC's "Good Morning America."






On his last day in office, after boarding Air Force One, "Trump took a call from Republican party chair Ronna McDaniel. ... He told McDaniel he was done with the Republican party. This is according to multiple sources familiar with the conversation," Karl said.



"'I'm done,' Trump told McDaniel from his office on board Air Force One. 'I'm starting my own party.'"Latest Post
