Mr. Bush, will you support Donald Trump if he wins the Republican Primary?

My debate question for each Republican candidate.

How can they answer that question without creating a problem?

I know "I fully expect to be the nominee, so that question is irrelevant" is most likely the answer.

But press him. "So, tonight, you can't commit to supporting the Republican nominee, whoever it is, unless you win the nomination?"

Can all 8 others answer the same way, without it looking obvious?

4. I wonder what the answer will be if they ask Trump? -- nevermind.

5. Trump has already answered that question

 

He will not disavow a third party run.

So, you can assume if he runs as a third party candidate, he won't endorse his Republican challenger.

So, the question is, what if Trump gets the Republican nomination?

And wouldn't the RNC question of endorsing the Republican nominee be an equitable question for all the candidates? After all, if you answer "yes", that would eliminate a third party run and be a fair question for everyone in the race.
