Murdoch says GOP is ‘mad’ for what they’re doing to Trump; will ‘guarantee Hillary win’

Media tycoon Rupert Murdoch took to social media on Friday to say the Republican Party would be “mad” to go after Donald Trump.

Murdock’s comment comes after reports this week that GOP leaders met to discuss a contested, or brokered convention at next year’s Republican National Convention, which would occur if no candidate has enough delegates to win the nomination. But there is a concern the party is planning to rally around a “mainstream” alternative if Trump has enough support to become the nominee.

A move Murdock, the founder and head of the global media conglomerate News Corporation, cautioned the GOP against, saying it will only ensure a Hillary Clinton presidency:

Besides, it’s not like Trump needs added incentive to consider a third party run. On the other hand, some social media users said that Murdoch, who has been critical of Trump, is to blame for the current state of the GOP.

Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
