Trump Told Cruz 'Don't Endorse Me': 'The Only Thing that Means Anything Are the People'
Most political endorsements no longer mean anything, says Donald Trump.
“I'm not a huge believer in endorsements, although I've had some that had a huge impact,” he said at a Milwaukee town hall moderated by Greta Van Susteren.
Trump referred to his political opponent Ted Cruz, saying he recently told the Texas senator “he doesn’t have to endorse me.”
“I think Ted Cruz would be a terrible president,” said Trump. “I don't want him to be under any pressure. Don't endorse me. It's not going to have any impact. The people know what's going on.”
“You know, I've been watching the politicians,” the GOP candidate lamented.
“They said, 'If we get the House, it's going to be different.' We got the House, nothing happened. 'If we get the Senate, it's going to be different.' Now we have the House and the Senate, nothing is different. I know politicians. The endorsements don't mean anything. The only thing that means anything are the people.”
