Even as the race for the White House continues to escalate, things are always changing. And now, no one expected this shocking change.
And Trump has received a major endorsement that no one saw coming.
Endorsements are a major part of every political campaign effort.
And even for someone as prominent and well-supported as Trump, an endorsement can change the outcome of a certain election.
Over the weekend, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announced that he would be suspending his 2024 election bid.
With this recent announcement, which was a surprise to many, DeSantis also announced his endorsement of fellow GOP candidate and former president Donald Trump.
The two men have had a back-and-forth sort of relationship over the past few years with praise and criticism coming for each other coming at different times.
But now, Donald Trump has said that he is “very honored” to have received the endorsement from DeSantis.
Trump said he was “very honored to have his endorsement. I look forward to working together with him to beat Joe Biden, who is the worst and most corrupt president in the history of our country.”
His campaign also released a statement warning of the danger America is facing and highlighting that now is the “time to choose wisely.”
The statement said, “With only a few days left until President Donald J. Trump’s victory in New Hampshire, we are honored by the endorsement from Governor Ron DeSantis and so many other former presidential candidates. It is now time for all Republicans to rally behind President Trump to defeat Crooked Joe Biden and end his disastrous presidency.”
The statement continued and emphasized Nikki Haley’s campaign, and claimed she has been pandering to globalists and Democrats.
“Nikki Haley is the candidate of the globalists and Democrats who will do everything to stop the America First movement. From higher taxes, to decimating Social Security and Medicare, and to open borders, she represents the views of Democrats more than the views of Republicans. It’s time to choose wisely.”
DeSantis also released a statement highlighting why he chose to endorse Trump.
“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”

He said, “It’s clear to me that a majority of Republican primary voters want to give Donald Trump another chance.”
“They watch his presidency gets stymied by relentless resistance, and they see Democrats using lawfare to this day to attack him. While, I’ve had disagreements with Donald Trump, such as on the Coronavirus pandemic and his elevation of Anthony Fauci, Trump is superior to the current incumbent Joe Biden. That is clear.”
He continued, “I signed a pledge to support the Republican nominee and I will honor that pledge is my endorsement because we can’t go back to the old Republican guard of yesteryear, or repackage formed of warmed over corporatism that Nikki Haley represents. The days of putting Americans last of kowtowing to large corporations, of caving to woke ideology are over.”
This statement proves that even though many Americans have differences, we must join together to stop the assault of the Left.
The time for division has past, and the time for unity is here.
We cannot hope to stop the Radical Left’s destructive policies if we cannot agree with one another.
