Donald Trump Endorses Paul Ryan

trump-9Donald Trump finally endorsed Paul Ryan at a rally in Ryan’s home state of Wisconsin tonight.

He started out the night by declaring, “We need unity. We have to win this election… This is one of the most important elections of my lifetime.”

“I ran against the system,” Trump said. “I ran against the donors… and against the status quo.”

He kept calling for unity over and over, citing Ronald Reagan on the principle that a conservative who disagrees with you 20 percent of the time is not your enemy.

Finally he declared, “I support and endorse our Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan.” Trump acknowledged they disagree on some things, but said what’s important is that they agree on most things.

Oh, and he also said he fully supports and endorses John McCain and Kelly Ayotte too.
