Former presidential candidate Mike Huckabee is not happy with Republican politicians like Senator Ben Sasse who have publicly stated that they will not vote for Donald Trump in the general election under any circumstances.
“I’m outraged that people would say those kinds of things…” Huckabee said while speaking at Georgetown University. “All of us who were presidential candidates on the Republican ticket were asked to essentially guarantee that we would support the nominee of the party.”
Huckabee promised to support whoever the eventual Republican nominee was, including Trump. “He pledged his allegiance, so did I… so you have a sense of, really, obligation I think to be loyal to the party and to its nominee.”
The comments come after Huckabee defended Trump after his refusal to disavow the Ku Klux Klan during an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, asking “Does anybody think Donald Trump is a racist?” Huckabee has yet to endorse a candidate, although his daughter was hired by the Trump campaign a week ago.
