Another presidential non-winner, John McCain, joined Romney and published a statement on his website Thursday backing up Mitt Romney’s concerns about the state of the GOP presidential race, that is, concerns about Trump:
“I share the concerns about Donald Trump that my friend and former Republican nominee, Mitt Romney, described in his speech today. I would also echo the many concerns about Mr. Trump’s uninformed and indeed dangerous statements on national security issues that have been raised by 65 Republican defense and foreign policy leaders.
“At a time when our world has never been more complex or more in danger, as we watch the threatening actions of a neo-imperial Russia, an assertive China, an expansionist Iran, an insane North Korean ruler, and terrorist movements that are metastasizing across the Middle East and Africa, I want Republican voters to pay close attention to what our party’s most respected and knowledgeable leaders and national security experts are saying about Mr. Trump, and to think long and hard about who they want to be our next Commander-in-Chief and leader of the free world.”
This will help the divisiveness how?
Trump actually spoke of uniting the party this past weekend, why aren’t they?
Romney made a comparison in his speech between Trump and McCain saying, “There is dark irony in his boasts of his sexual exploits during the Vietnam War while John McCain, whom he has mocked, was imprisoned and tortured.”
So, did they consult beforehand?
Where was these two when Trump started his winning streak?
Chris Christie was out giving his own statement Thursday. He said he’s an endorser but not part of Trump’s campaign and is not on the road with Trump. He assured everyone he is not a surrogate after six New Jersey papers called for him to resign in light of his endorsement of Trump.
Christie looked like a mannequin standing behind Trump for two days and wants you to know he’s not a mannequin.
Christie has been pulverized by his own party so between that and Romney’s speech, there is a strong message out to the establishment – do not endorse Trump!
Maybe that’s why Rick Scott didn’t endorse as he was planning to do.
