Donald Trump is our presumptive nominee for the Republican party, but that shouldn’t mean that he doesn’t need more support. Every single person coming out to support him is another bullet in the chamber of the freedom gun that Trump has in his holster.
With every passing day it seems that more and more of the GOP elite that mocked him and came out against him are switching sides and beginning to see the light. While John McCain was never truly against Trump he was outspoken when questioned on whether of not Trump would have been a good president. It seems as though McCain is joining the ever growing list that think Trump would make a good president.
He made his point clear on CNN and spoke about the GOP disconnect as well.
Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said likely presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump “could be a capable leader.”
McCain said, “I’ve said all along that I would support the nominee of the party. I believe that a Hillary Clinton presidency will cause the economy to continue to stumble along and put us in the economic malaise that basically we’ve had for eight years.”
He continued, “You have to draw the conclusion that there is some distance if not a disconnect, between party leadership, and members of congress, and many of the voters who have selected Donald Trump to be the nominee of the party. We could go down the list, but a lot of it is older, white blue collar workers who see no prospect of a job ever again. We see dissatisfied young people carrying student debts into their first job for many, many years, and of course, a perception, which is largely reality, not totally, that there’s gridlock in Washington, and that’s given rise to Trump and Sanders, and that’s something that we in the Republican Party are going to have to look at very carefully … You have to listen to people that have chosen the nominee of our Republican Party. I think it would be foolish ignore them.”
McCain added, “I think he could be a capable leader.”
We do too John. Trump 2016!
