Say what you will about the man, he happens to influence of a good chunk of people – a chunk that we may need to have on board to beat Obama. His endorsement as well as anyone else’s should be welcome – after all, we’re building bridges with all coalitions that will support our man, not fences.
From CBS News:
Donald Trump said Thursday he’s endorsing Mitt Romney because of his position on catching up to China’s economic growth and because he believes Romney can out-debate President Obama.
“You look at what’s going on with China, you look at what’s going on with the other OPEC nations and how they are absolutely destroying this country, and he’s the only one who talks about it,” Trump told a group of reporters at an impromptu news conference in Las Vegas. “So that was very important to me. I thought he did very well in the debates, that was very important… I think if he debates that well, I don’t think Obama will fare well against him.
Romney’s campaign is expected to formally unveil the endorsement at an event at 3:30 Eastern Time.
Update: In case you’re hungry for more, here’s Trump with Cavuto immediately after the presser.
