Something quite surprising took place on Sunday during a Donald Trump rally in Huntsville, Alabama. Alabama’s senior Senator, Jeff Sessions , took to the stage to help fire up the crowd, which he did in shocking fashion. Senator Sessions chose that moment to endorse Donald Trump as his favored candidate for President!
“There is an opportunity this year, Tuesday, and we have the opportunity — we have an opportunity Tuesday. It may be the last opportunity we have for the people’s voice to be heard. You have asked for 30 years, and politicians have promised for 30 years to fix illegal immigration. Have they done it?
Donald Trump will do it.
The American people have known for years these trade agreements have not been working for them. We now have and will soon have a vote on the Transpacific Partnership TPP), Obamatrade, and it will damage America. It will create a commission that undermines our sovereignty, and it should not pass. Donald Trump when he gets elected president will see it does not pass…
He is committed to leading this country in an effective way. You know, nobody is perfect. We can’t have everything, can we, Mr. Trump? But I can tell you one thing, I think at this time in my opinion, my best judgment, at this time in America’s history, we need to make America great again.
I am pleased to endorse Donald Trump for the presidency of the United States.”
To say this is “shocking” is to undersell just how big a deal this endorsement really is. Trump has thus far been unable to gain much ground among our political leaders. Other than Sessions, he’s been endorsed by two current Congressmen and Governors Chris Christie (R-NJ) and Paul LePage (R-ME). Will Sessions get the Trump endorsement train rolling? Only time will tell.
