Michigan votes one week from Tuesday, and Trump is scheduled to take to the state’s airwaves daily this week to speak on Romney’s behalf.
“There’s nothing – there’s no gift, no Christmas gift, that could be given better than Rick Santorum to the Democrats,” Trump said in a radio interview which aired in Michigan. Democrats, he continued, “are just salivating at that. And, you know, I don’t think they believe it’s going to happen. But boy, would they like it to happen because that would be an easy election.”
The perception of electability was a major factor in deciding to endorse Romney, Trump said, and Republicans would be foolish to put forward Santorum as their nominee because “he basically has no chance” of winning.
