Perry: 'Trump Earned the Nomination and We Need to Respect That'
Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry says supporting Donald Trump is a no-brainer.
Perry said on Hannity tonight that voters will have a choice between Trump and Hillary Clinton, and that the next president of the United States is going to appoint at least one, and probably three Supreme Court justices.
"This is about as 'no-brainer' as you can get from my perspective," he said, adding that the alternative would be "an absolute disaster."
Perry pointed to Trump's stance on education reform as a sign that he believes strongly in the 10th Amendment and returning power to the states.
"We agree on a whole more than we disagree on," Perry said. "If you want to split hairs, if you want to get your panties in a wad over this issue and that issue, that’s fine, but the point is, Donald Trump is going to be the nominee. He earned it. And we need to respect that."
Perry said that Trump wasn't his first or even his second choice, but now that he's the nominee Perry would do everything to make sure that he's elected.
