'PARTY OF ONE': The New York Post sums up Donald Trump's future

The New York Post put out a preview of its Wednesday cover after Donald Trump declared war on the Republican Party Tuesday.

“It is so nice that the shackles have been taken off me and I can now fight for America the way I want to,” Trump said on Twitter.

The Post’s cover features the Republican nominee sitting on a chair, alone, and holding a Trump-Pence balloon, behind the headline, “Trump at war with GOP, declares himself a PARTY OF ONE.”

Trump bashed the GOP for abandoning him. He ripped House Speaker Paul Ryan by calling him a “very weak and ineffective leader” after the nation’s highest-ranking elected Republican said he would no longer defend or campaign for the real-estate mogul.

Trump later tore into Sen. John McCain of Arizona, who withdrew his endorsement of the billionaire, and continued to lash out at Republicans who desert him.
