Former Indiana University basketball coach Bobby Knight, a supporter of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, offered a blunt answer when asked if his chosen candidate needed to take steps to “heal some of the rifts” that he’s created in the Republican Party.
"I don't care about the Republican Party, I don't care about the Democratic Party" -- Trump supporter Bobby Knight https://t.co/9c5Sz3n7mc— New Day (@New Day)1462366680.0
"I don't care about the Republican Party, I don't care about the Democratic Party," Knight said. “You know, I’m tired of this party stuff, that we’re going to do what’s right for this party or we’re going to do what’s right for that party. Let’s just get together and do what’s right for the country, I think that’s what all of us want.”
Following a loss to Trump in Indiana, his rival Sen. Ted Cruz suspended his presidential campaign on Tuesday evening.
“We gave it everything we’ve got. But the voters chose another path,” Cruz told supporters on Tuesday evening.
Ohio Gov. John Kasich, however, has vowed to continue his campaign.

Trump faces strong opposition from some elements of the Republican Party and the conservative movement. Leaders of the #NeverTrump effort told TheBlaze on Tuesday that Trump’s new status as the presumptive Republican nominee doesn’t change their stance.
