Delete Your Account': GOP Mocked for Tweet About 'Hard Fought Race

Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus' call to unify around presumptive nominee Donald Trump is off to a rocky start, based on the Twitter replies the GOP received Wednesday afternoon.

What began as an olive branch to supporters of failed Republican presidential candidates, thanking them for their "hard fought race," quickly turned into a thread of Internet memes and comments mocking both the Republican Party and Trump.

At that, the comments began flowing, perhaps most notably from Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse (R) and Republican strategist Rick Wilson.

Then many others piled on.

Trump became the GOP's presumptive nominee Tuesday night, after his chief rival Ted Cruz ended his presidential campaign. Ohio Gov. John Kasich also suspended his bid for the White House Wednesday evening, leaving Trump as the only remaining Republican candidate.

However, the Republican Party remains very split. Some Never-Trumpers are proposing a third party conservative alternative while others are calling on conservatives to vote for Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton in order to stop Trump from winning the presidency.
