Dick Cheney has come out and told CNN that he will be supporting Donald Trump for president:
POLITICO – Former Vice President Dick Cheney will support Donald Trump as the Republican nominee for president, he told CNN on Friday.
A person familiar with Cheney’s thinking reiterated his statement that he will support the nominee of his party, as he always has.
The announced support comes after both former presidents George H.W. Bush, under whom Cheney served as defense secretary, and George W. Bush, with whom he served as vice president, said that they would not be supporting Trump or attending the Republican National Convention in Cleveland.
There’s going to be a lot of people we respect who choose to support Trump and some, like Graham, that we don’t respect who choose not to support Trump for whatever reason.
I’ve got people emailing me telling me I must state emphatically that I’m #NeverEverEverTrump, and I have others telling me I need to get behind Trump now!
Look, it’s a difficult position that we’ve been put in these days with Trumpertantrum against Obama 2.0 in a dress, and I don’t begrudge anyone who chooses to vote for Trump or chooses not to vote at all. I totally get it, we are between a rock and a hard place. It’s very frustrating.
My point is that I’m not going to attack people for either stance they take on Trump. That’s just where I’m at with this.
