El Trumpo just tweeted a signal that he might go third party after receiving the news about a SuperPAC formed just to defeat him:

Way back in August, the Donald made an agreement with the GOP that he wouldn’t seek a third party nomination, but apparently that came with certain strings attached, and he believes the compact has been broken.
As far as I can tell, the Donaldinator is talking about this article from the Wall Street Journal:
The Republican establishment, increasingly alarmed by the enduring strength of Donald Trump’s presidential bid, is ratcheting up efforts to knock him out of the race, including the first attempt to unite donors from rival camps into a single anti-Trump force.
A well-connected GOP operative is planning a “guerrilla campaign” backed by secret donors to “defeat and destroy” the celebrity businessman’s candidacy, according to a memo reviewed by The Wall Street Journal.
…The most concerted effort is Trump Card LLC, the self-styled guerrilla campaign being launched by Liz Mair, the former online communications director of the Republican National Committee.
“In the absence of our efforts, Trump is exceedingly unlikely to implode or be forced out of the race,” according to the Trump Card memo. “The stark reality is that unless something dramatic and unconventional is done, Trump will be the Republican nominee and Hillary Clinton will become president.”
It looks like things are going to get even more crazy than they were before…
