Why have so many Republican Party officials, like Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, endorsed Donald Trump? He is a direct threat to the Republican Party and to the USA as a democratic republic, so why does the Republican Party not dump Trump?

This is a little analysis piece I wrote with a former student of mine for an international news site aimed mostly at internationals and academics in the Netherlands (but with larger ambitions).   Mainly, I wanted to give a crash course into what is going on the Republican side of the campaign for my fellow exiles and warm hosts.
