Trump continues to assault his own party on social media

Donald Trump went on a Twitter rant today in response to more Republicans dropping their support.

WASHINGTON (WUSA9) - Donald Trump's assault on his own party continued on Tuesday. Trump went on a Twitter rant in response to more Republicans dropping their support.

In one he said, "Disloyal R's are far more difficult than Crooked Hillary. They come at you from all sides. They don't know how to win - I will teach them!" But he's not the only one facing trouble in campaign 2016, Hillary Clinton is dealing with more leaked emails.

More top Republicans are pulling their support for Donald Trump in light of the video of him making vulgar comments about women. Trump isn't let them off easy, though, and we heard how he really felt online. The Twitter tirade started Tuesday morning by calling House Speaker Paul Ryan a 'weak and ineffective leader' after Ryan pulled his support.

When Grand Old Party staple, Senator John McCain was the next to distance himself from Trump, he called the Senator "foul-mouthed."

Trump continued to take on the Republican establishment, saying "It's nice that the shackles have been taken off and I can now fight for America the way I want to."

This, as protests break out again outside the Republican National Committee HQ in Washington. The group "ALL OF US 2016" are demanding RNC Chair Reince Priebus and House Speaker Paul Ryan revoke their endorsements of Donald Trump.
They say Trump's remarks about women are indefensible.

Trump does still have the support of some GOP leaders: Governor Chris Christie.

"I'm still supporting Donald, you know obviously disappointed by what happened and you know disappointed in some respects by the response initially, but I'm still supporting him," Governor Christie said on the "The Boomer & Carton Show."

Also debuting Tuesday, Trump's newest ad. "Hillary Clinton doesn't have the fortitude, strength or stamina to lead in our world," the ad says.

Both candidates are in Florida on Tuesday: Trump at a rally in Panama City, Hillary speaking on climate change with Al Gore. Clinton, seemingly not fazed by the new batch of leaked emails, her lead over Trump: Not impacted either.

"I'm running against a guy who denies science, who denies climate change and says it’s a hoax created by the Chinese," says Clinton in front of a crowd in Miami.

The latest Republican to respond to Trump's comments Tuesday was Maryland Governor Larry Hogan. Hogan said what Trump said in that 2005 recording was "disgraceful and outrageous." Hogan said months ago he would not support Trump and plans to 'write-in' his choice for President.
