First it was his race-based attack on a federal judge. Now, it's Donald Trump's bald politicization of the Orlando terror attack that has his fellow Republicans cringing – and worse.
It's been over a month since his last remaining competitors – Ted Cruz and John Kasich – bowed out of the race, and it seems that the majority of the Republican establishment has accepted what seems to be the inevitable: Donald Trump will be the party's nominee in the general election this November.
But even in these last few weeks before the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Trump has continued to frequently make controversial remarks; most notably, he claimed that an American judge, Gonzalo Curiel, couldn't do his job because of his Mexican heritage (Curiel is the judge appointed to precede over the talked-about Trump University case.)
The backlash kept on coming over the weekend, when Trump tweeted, "Appreciate the congrats for being right on radical Islamic terrorism, I don't want congrats, I want toughness & vigilance. We must be smart!", which received bipartisan disapproval. As the critiques keep growing, the question more and more Republicans are begging is this: Is there a way for Trump to not be the nominee?
