"I'm 100 percent," Santorum said Tuesday during an interview on Fox News's "On The Record," when asked if he was supporting or endorsing Trump. "That's endorse."
Santorum, who backed Marco Rubio after dropping out of the race himself in February, said he spoke with Trump more than a week ago and he said the businessman asked for his support.
The former Senator indicated a top reason for endorsing Trump is the vacant Supreme Court seat. Santorum said he made a couple suggestions for Trump's list of potential nominees .
"The most important issue is preserving the Constitution of this country and a liberal Supreme Court will destroy it," Santorum said.
"I think Americans maybe just want a little unvarnished [candidate]. I can't say that I'm crazy about it," Santorum said in explaining Trump's support throughout the GOP primaries.
Santorum conceded that the 2016 race, in his view, is more about personalities than policy.
"I think the American public has made up their mind about Hillary Clinton. I think Donald Trump still has an opportunity to cast the right lot and win this election," Santorum said.
RINOs that want to keep their jobs.....
Go Trump Go!
That’s nice. A little late, I guess and nobody will care. I’ve always liked Santorum although I know some have had issues with him.
Time for Rubio and Cruz to step up and endorse. Santorum did the right thing.
Santorum still thinks we care. How cute.
I agree completely.
This is a very good endorsement. Very good.
what took so long?
especially since Santorum was one of the few that wouldn’t bash Trump.
Rick Santorum is not RINO.
All the way Catholic and all the way Republican.
Read the book “Bella’s Gift” that he co-wrote with his wife.
Another step in the right direction. Santorum had his opportunity in 2012, but he couldn’t bust open the party elite. Trump has that mandate now, but it has to be done this time, or it will never be done short of an armed revolution—and Trump is preferable to armed revolution.
But, but... then Trump will be considered "GOPe", as the Rubio/Cruz "GOPe" associates with Trump. /sar
This man is straight Catholic, same as I am; he is a very dedicated family man; he is very soft spoken, in fact we had a hard time getting him to raise his voice...
We had the whole Commonwealth there for him, but Philly, Harrisburg and Pittsburg wiped us out...big city dems...
controversial?? They threw that word in because?? Ahhhhh....Hillary owns them...
He knows a lot about MiddleEast terrorists/terrorism too
so santorum tells Trump a couple names and then trump says he is adding some to his list.
Time for Rubio and Cruz to step up and endorse.
Rubio I don’t know about but he may endorse before the convention. I think Cruz
will endorse at the convention before Trumps acceptance speech. Cruz gets his
biggest bang by doing it at the convetion. JMO.
I return to Cruz's video at age 18 regarding his aspirations..."Money, power...to rule the world".
