In the first Republican presidential debate, Fox News's Bret Baier asked, "Is there anyone on stage -- and can I see hands - who is unwilling tonight to pledge your support to the eventual nominee of the Republican party, and to pledge to not run an independent campaign against that person?"
Only Donald Trump raised his hand to the sound of a booing audience. Baier followed up, to clarify Trump's position, noting "the experts say an independent run would almost certainly hand the race over the democrats and likely another Clinton."
Trump replied that he "fully" understood. "I cannot say I have to respect the person that if it's not me, the person that wins."
