Trump admitting that maybe, just maybe, he might have made a mistake in endorsing Luther Strange. He reveres loyalty above all else, so he’s sticking with him to the end looks like. Yet saying this in front of him in front of thousands of people…
“We have to be loyal in life,” Trump said. “There is something called loyalty, and I might have made a mistake and I’ll be honest, I might have made a mistake.”
Trump appeared in Alabama for a campaign rally for Strange, despite polling showing him still lagging behind his primary challenger conservative Judge Roy Moore.
Trump predicted that if Strange lost, his political opponents and the media would cite it as a big loss for Trump, but that he wanted to repay the appointed senator for his loyal support in the Senate.
“Both are good men,” Trump said, referring to Strange and Moore.
He specified that his decision was about loyalty and picking a candidate that could win in a general election.
“Luther will definitely win … Roy has a very good chance of not winning in the general election,” Trump said.
But he promised that if Moore won the primary, he would be “campaigning like hell” for him in the general election.
That is a scare tactic. Alabama is a heavy, blood red Republican state, Roy Moore will win a general election in Alabama, hands down. AND he’s done it twice before.
