Ron Paul isn't in the GOP. NeverTrumpers in the GOP, who refuse to endorse or support Donald largely stem from the neocon establishment wing of the Party. Why would Mike Lee align himself with this wing of the Party over a personal vendetta, solely because Donald "attacked" his best friend? When it comes to any "religious discrimination", I'm assuming Mike Lee is referring to Donald's plan to halt Muslim migration to the US. Even Mike Lee's "best friend", Ted Cruz, supported measures to screen and approve Christian refugees from Syria. I know the plans aren't totally similar, but still imply a form a "religious discrimination". Donald has even backtracked on that proposed Muslim ban, and leaned with Rand on limiting migration from certain radical Islamic countries instead. So it just seems like like kind of stretch for Mike Lee to bring up these examples for why he can't support Trump.
