Donald Trump: “There’s No Gift That Could Be Given Better Than Rick Santorum to Democrats”

Last month Donald Trump endorsed Mitt Romney in Las Vegas.

Today Trump slammed Rick Santorum in a Michigan radio interview.
FOX 8 Cleveland reported:

Donald Trump demonstrated Monday that he has no qualms about going after one of Mitt Romney’s chief rivals, Rick Santorum.

“There’s nothing — there’s no gift, no Christmas gift, that could be given better than Rick Santorum to the Democrats,” Trump said in a radio interview which aired in Michigan. Democrats, he continued, “are just salivating at that. And, you know, I don’t think they believe it’s going to happen. But boy, would they like it to happen because that would be an easy election.”

Michigan votes one week from Tuesday, and Trump is scheduled to take to the state’s airwaves daily this week to speak on Romney’s behalf.

The perception of electability was a major factor in deciding to endorse Romney, Trump said, and Republicans would be foolish to put forward Santorum as their nominee because “he basically has no chance” of winning.

“Otherwise, what’s the whole purpose, what’s the purpose of working, working, working, going out voting, doing your thing if the person has no chance of getting elected,” Trump said on WSGW Radio of Saginaw, Michigan.

Trump considered a presidential bid himself, then nixed the idea, and in January tossed his endorsement to Mitt Romney.

    There’s no better gift than Trump endorsing a Flip Flopper.

    Romney’s Moronic Indulgence of Trump

    Phil Klein calls Mitt Romney’s joint appearance with Donald Trump to accept the latter’s endorsement “the biggest blunder of his candidacy.” I’m not sure I’d go that far, but it’s certainly up there. Consider that last time the effect of a Trump endorsement was polled, by Fox News in Spetember, it came out as a net negative: 31% would be less likely to vote for a Trump endorsee, only 6% more likely.

    Those who are working to re-elect Barack Obama are thrilled by the development, touting it on the @BarackObama Twitter account and in a blast email from the Democratic National Committee. Romney will most likely be the Republican nominee, and if Trump says something particularly incendiary, one can certainly imagine an attack ad using the footage of Trump and Romney. But even if this blows over and doesn’t seriously hurt Romney, it’s hard to see how it can possibly help.

    Sure we can give Obama a better gift. Romney.

    Trump would have been the worst candidate yet. Thanks bud for dropping out of the race.

  • regularguy

    Thank you for that, Mr. Trump. Now STHU, please. This may not be the greatest presidential field ever, but I don’t need Mr. Trump to tell me for whom to vote, or that one candidate is a total loser over another. Really, Obama is a very weak candidate, truth be known, and Santorum, for better or worse, continues to defy the odds.

    Hey Trump…STHU!

    ‘You’re Fired!’

    “Romney will most likely be the Republican nominee”

    REALLY, BECAUSE THIS ARTICLE SAYS SO.

    This is hurt Romney in the Short term but with a big mouth like Trump, he will eventually say something again that is stupid. You can count on Trump.

  • Patty

    For all we know, Trump endorsement is the reason Santorum is surging ahead.

    When asked by Greta why he endorse Mitt. China, that was his answer, he thinks the other candidates aren’t concern about China.

    We all are very very aware of China’s growth and maybe they will be the next superpower but Romney isn’t Superman, he acts like he is, though.

    No matter the endorsements from Christie, Haley and Coulter, Americans are more than capable of making up their mind. Romney can repeat over and over what a Conservative he is but just because he says it, doesn’t make it true.

    Trump ego matches that of zero. He truly believes he’s the smartest guy in the room.

  • NeoKong

    Alternate headlines.

    “Romney accepts endorsement from disgraced birther.”

    “Romney aligns himself with the birther movement.”

    “Donald Trump endorse Romneycare.”

  • Patty

    And with all the democrats watching the Republicans and laughing, I would suggest they get their house in order because there is just so many times you can blame Congress, when the whole thing will fall like a house of cards.

    They main job these days is repeating their marching orders and lies about the jobless numbers and tell the viewers what hateful people the right are. I do believe that if they keep this up, it will blow up in their face come November.

    And I suggest you don’t believe some of the misleading polls.

    This means that Santorum can win.

    Trump voted for Comrade Barry Hussein, contributed to Schumer and Reid. He’s no conservative by any stretch of the imagination – and neither is Romney.

    Well I hope people remember that New York is full of liars and thieves that screwed over the entire country and won’t let any of them “fear monger” us out of electing someone who might hold the guilty accountable.

  • Joanne

    I just hope someone like Allen West comes into the game and saves the day.

    If people haven’t noticed, the world is going to hell in a hand basket, because the U.S. no longer has a President that makes it his priority to be the world’s watchdog against evil; instead Obama has aligned himself with everything and everyone evil. Shame. Shame.

  • dunce

    He really must believe obama is electable because uh, uh. Why is is that again ? Well anyway it was important to take a shot at a leading republican.
