Carson: GOP could 'destroy' itself with 'party boss' meetings

Ben Carson issued a scathing response to the Republican Party a day after the Washington Post reported that party leaders met to discuss the possibility of a brokered convention.

In a statement, Carson slammed the "party boss insider" meeting held Monday, attended by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Republican National Committee chair Reince Priebus, saying that meetings such as these will "destroy" the party.

The former neurosurgeon also said Donald Trump "will not be the only one" to leave the party if the "will of the people" is subverted in favor of the political establishment.

"If the leaders of the Republican Party want to destroy the party, they should continue to hold meetings like the one described in the Washington Post this morning," Carson said in the statement.
