Republican front-runner Donald Trump said Tuesday he could no longer pledge to support the eventual GOP nominee.
“I’ll look at it. I’ll see who it is,” the billionaire told moderator Anderson Cooper during a CNN town hall.
“I’m not looking to hurt anybody,” he added. “I love the Republican Party.”
Earlier, Cruz strongly suggested that he would not support Trump as the nominee. Cooper asked the Texas senator point blank three times if he’d throw his weight behind a Trump candidacy and Cruz repeated that it was not in his habit to support individuals who attack his family.
When Trump added that he did not want Ted Cruz’s support, Cooper asked him if he continued to pledge to support the eventual party nominee.
“No, I don’t anymore,” Trump said.
“You don’t?” Cooper asked.
“No. We’ll see who it is,” Trump replied.
Later in the evening, Ohio Gov. John Kasich also appeared to walk back his pledge to support the eventual nominee. The governor told Cooper he’d like to first see who secures the nomination.
“All of us shouldn’t even have answered that question,” Kasich said of the pledge the candidates took last year.
Here’s video of all three candidates wavering in their support of the pledge to support the eventual GOP nominee:
