Anti-Trump delegates lost their battle on Monday against the presumptive GOP presidential nominee. It was a chaotic scene and some delegates even walked out.
Talking Points Memo reports:
Trump foes said they had the signatures of a majority of the delegates from nine delegations to force a roll call vote on the convention’s rules. However, when it became time to approve the rules, the officials presiding said that the three of those delegations had withdrawn their petition, and the rules were approved in a voice vote.
The vote on the convention’s rules was called which ended in chaos, with anti-Trump delegates chanting “Dump Trump,” only to be met by chants of “USA, USAl!” and “Trump!”
Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) made a motion for a roll call vote, but it was announced that the movement had lost the three of the nine delegations it needed to force a vote.
Leon Wolf of RedState.com tweeted, ‘Steve Womack now trying to say he couldn’t tell the ayes from the nays, wants another voice vote. Many angry shouts of “ROLL CALL”‘

The anti-Trump movement lost but their voices were heard.
On another note, Donald was reportedly in a motorcade accident, but he’s OK:(
