The WHINER says: Cruz, Kasich Shouldn't Speak at Convention Without Endorsement

Donald Trump won't invite former rivals Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Gov. John Kasich of Ohio to speak at the Republican National Convention without endorsements from both, he told The New York Times.
"If there's no endorsement, then I would not invite them to speak," Trump said.
Trump's comments come as his campaign and the Republican National Committee work to ensure next month's convention goes as smoothly as possible.
There have been rumblings that displeased delegates will stage a revolt to try to oust the presumptive Republican nominee, but RNC leaders are threatening to withhold speaking slots and warning that attempting to undermine Trump violates party rules, The Times reported.
Trump told the Times his opponents will fail in derailing his nomination.
"You mean to tell me we're going to get the largest vote in his history of the Republican primaries and now the same people that either didn't run or get beaten in a landslide are going to try and back-end?" Trump said.

Trump is the nominee. Normally it's the nominee's preference who speaks, at least to some extent. We can't have another convention where speakers mealy mouth or throw shade on the nominee like in 2012. If you can't support the nominee, then you have no business attending the convention to nominate the presidential nominee. That's just common sense.
