Donald Trump is set to announce his support in the presidential race on Thursday, in Las Vegas, before the Nevada’s Republican caucuses on Saturday. It’s reported by the Associated Press that Donald Trump plans to endorse former House speaker Newt Gingrich. Then CNN is reporting that Donald Trump will be endorsing former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney.
So you may be asking, what is Donald Trumps real decision since no one is reporting the same. Gingrich campaign spokesman R.C. Hammond says, “Trump is the only person who knows what Trump will do.”
When Newt Gingrich was asked about the possible endorsement from Donald Trump on Wednesday, he responded with, “no idea what the Donald is going to do. He is always interesting and I don’t know of anybody who does a better job of getting attention by announcing that he will presently announce something.”
If it’s any clue, Donald Trump said on CBS’ “Face the Nation” this past Sunday, “He’s got great ideas. He’s very smart, he’s very tough and he is a great debater,” about Newt Gingrich.
Then again, when Mitt Romney met with Donald Trump in New York, Romney snuck out a different door than the one that the press was waiting for him at. Donald Trump told Fox News on Monday, “It’s a great thing when you can show that you’ve been successful and that you’ve made a lot of money and that you’ve employed a lot of people. I actually think it’s a positive and I think that actually Mitt Romney is starting to do that. You know, at first he was a little bit hesitant about it and now he’s out there. So I really think it’s a positive. I really want to endorse somebody and I’m going to be doing that over the not so distant future, and I’m going to be doing that, and if that person doesn’t win, you know, we’ll see what happens.”
Sources have said the announcement from Donald Trump would happen at a 12:30 p.m. press conference in Las Vegas, Nevada.
