Trump Endorses Romney Ahead Of Nevada Caucus


Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney should be hired, not fired as the Republican nominee, Donald Trump says.

The real estate mogul and reality TV star gave Romney his endorsement Thursday, surprising many political analysts who expected a Newt Gingrich endorsement.

Trump said Gingrich's campaign must have put out the idea he'd be endorsing the former House Speaker, claiming he had never said he would endorse Gingrich.

President Obama's supporters wasted no time drawing comparisons between the two men.

"Why would Trump Endorse Romney?" blared the headline of a statement released by the Democratic National Committee. "Perhaps because they Both Like Firing People!"

Trump said Romney's debating skills and views on China were his primary reasons for giving the GOP frontrunner his endorsement.

"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 said. "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 received Trump's endorsement ahead of the Nevada caucus, which will be held Saturday.

    Why am I not surprised by this? I see $$$ signs for Donald if big "business as usual" Newt were to get elected. Ethics and morals alone should be enough to sink Newt, but the American public seems to have lost any care about those values in who governs these days. Newt sounds patriotic campaigning, but he wouldn't stand by those words in office. Newt's a New World Order globalist, as much so as both Bushs, Bill Clinton, and Obama. "Because power corrupts, society's demand for moral and character increase as the importance of the position increaces." "Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." Both quotes are by John Adams and show how far we have fallen from the values upon which our nation was founded. You can learn a lot more of what the Founders said at, things they don't teach in school.
