Another significant Republican figure has climbed aboard the Trump train, announcing his complete support for the presidential candidate.
Rick Santorum appeared with Fox’s Greta van Susteren to announce that he is “100 percent” behind Donald Trump in his bid for the White House.
For many conservatives, despite concerns over Trump’s flip-flopping on issues, the most significant factor in this election will be which candidate is best suited to shape the divided Supreme Court.
In the wake of Justice Antonin Scalia’s death and the remaining justices split ideologically at four apiece, the next Supreme Court nominee could sway the courts to the left or right for decades to come.
So who do you trust with that decision – Hillary Clinton, or Donald Trump?
Santorum has faith in Trump, and that has sealed the deal.
Via Fox News Insider:
Former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum joined On the Record to explain why he’s supporting Donald Trump “100 percent.”
Santorum said that while attending Justice Antonin Scalia’s funeral in February, it dawned on him that “the most important issue right now is to preserve the Constitution.”
The former Pennsylvania senator said that if five “progressive, ultraliberal” justices are permitted to sit on the Supreme Court, the Constitution would be rewritten, and the next 25 years of the country would be changed.
Santorum said he approved of Donald Trump’s list of Supreme Court picks.
Greta challenged Santorum for his previous endorsement of Marco Rubio, asking him how that whole thing worked out.
Santorum sheepishly admitted it didn’t go so well, but reiterated that Trump’s Supreme Court selections “will preserve the Constitution” and his list consists of “solid folks.”
In fact, conservative Tea Party hero, Senator Mike Lee of Utah, sang Trump’s praises loudest. Lee said, “But listen, it wasn’t just that there were some great names on that list, that was the best, most conservative Supreme Court shortlist I’ve ever seen.”
