Some endorsements mean more than others; some are more sincere and more deserved. Others wind up being a huge mistake and there are those that you wish you hadn’t received. For President Trump two of those come to mind, the endorsement of David Duke and of then-Senator from Alabama, Jeff Sessions.
President Trump eventually denounced Duke, a political concession he had to make to calm the ranting of never-Trumpers looking for any excuse to create dissent. With Sessions, the daily consequences continue as our President is repaid for showing his appreciation for the early endorsement with the nomination for Attorney General.
That decision is the gravest error of Trump’s presidency to date, a mistake in judgment that any of us could have made and most of us did. We wrongly believing that the Jeff Sessions nominated for AG was the same guy we saw over those many years in the US Senate. Whoever Senator Jeff Sessions was, he’s not the guy now sitting in the DOJ top spot. And President Trump pays a daily price for rewarding whay appeared at the time to be loyalty with an enemy at the helm of the treasonous, deep state-infested and compromised DOJ and FBI.
Then there are the endorsements that weren’t given, like that of Senator Ted Cruz to President Trump as the two slugged it out in the home stretch of the 2016 campaign. Cruz made a mistake back then by refusing to endorse the GOP nominee even though he was given a slot on stage from which to do so. It cost him dearly with voters but he’s learned his lesson.
Things have changed in the months since the summer of 2016. Ted Cruz has already endorsed President Trump for reelection in 2020 and on Friday, President Trump returned the favor at the NRA convention in the Dallas.
Some courtesy applause were given to establishment never-Trumper John Cornyn (R-TX), with Trump saying Cornyn’s been with him from the beginning. He hasn’t but Trump is playing for the future. Clearly the people in attendance understand, from their tepid response, that you don’t get to be Mitch McConnell’s number two and remain there by serving the interests of the people. Cornyn is just another of the back-biters Trump has had to deal with and he did.
Then President Trump pledged something that had a much more sincere ring to it, “Full endorsement for this man – Ted Cruz.” The response was a resounding chorus of Cruuuzzzz throughout the building, and enthusiastic applause to match. Trump noted, “Boy, that was very rousing. That’s a good sign.”
Yes it is, and clearly both Trump and Cruz can accomplish a lot more by working together than by being at odds with each other. With Beano O’Rourke, the open borders Democrat having serious support among the illegals, libtards and globalists in Texas, it’s good to know that the Cruz supporters are fired up and that Trump has his back.
