Donald Trump endorsed Mitt Romney for president Thursday, saying he's impressed by the Republican candidate's debate prowess and believes he could easily beat President Obama in November.
"Mitt is tough. He's smart. He's sharp. He's not going to allow bad things to continue to happen to this country that we all love," Trump said in Las Vegas, telling the candidate to "go out and get 'em."
The real estate mogul, speaking briefly with reporters before the announcement, said that even though he "never knew" Romney before the race began, he's come to know him in recent months.
"His general attitude and the last two debates were very impressive," Trump said.
He also cited Romney's position on China, calling the former Massachusetts governor

I said two weeks ago, I was not sure of either of the 4 remaining on the GOP side. I am more unsure now than ever. I don’t feel like we have a chance in winning. When the GOP is as split as it is and everyone of the remaining 4 getting endorsements, just makes me sick we didn’t have better choices.
Crony capitalism at its best. Trump is a snakeoil salesman like Romney. Just what deals were made between the two of them before this endorsement? Old republican establishment politics.
Now Romney will go to Trumps casino and put on a show. If Romney becomes president (God forbid) watch the cronyism go into high gear. I hear Romney doesn’t care about the poor. Trump cares even less. Newt will do well without him.
I wonder if they intentionally leaked Newt as the person Trump was going to endorse just to dispirit us.
The elite HATE us and think we’re all mouth-breathing morons. They fully expect we will be there, willingly or not, come election day - just as we were last time. In truth, they are our enemy every bit as much as the Democrats. And they are very powerful.
If you haven't realized...many of FReepers are unstable in all their ways...tossed about like a ship on the ocean. They are probably the same freepers who will believe a PPP poll when it shows them GOOD things...but cry foul when it heralds a double digit win for Romney in Florida...saying it can't be trusted and "they don't believe it!" They will scream at dims for recess appointments but if a republican turns around and does the same thing...or 6 years from now...they will cheer and rationalize it. They supported Bush as he ran up the deficit....relentlessly.
Need I go on? I can.
“Reality TV star, Donald Trump, who endorsed and contributed money to Harry Reid and Charlie Rangel will travel today to Nevada to endorse a Republican candidate?
Please explain to us why anyone would care.
Please explain to Republican voters in Nevada why they should consider the opinion of a billionaire from New York who endorsed the arch enemy of all Republicans in Nevada, and really the enemy of all Republicans in the US.
Hopefully, media reports of this event will include this delicious irony.”

don’t watch Kelly anymore since she started on that shrink and attacked him .
Then she said she supported homosexuals and she has pals which are cross dressers and she has no problem with it.
Then she brings on Sally Khon to her show who now gets a job at FOX
A media matters Soros homosexual activist stooge now hired at FOX and is good pals with Kelly.
What is the betting Kelly had something to do with that job for her pal.
Can’t stand Kelly and I hope everyone else on our side wakes up and stops giving her ratings and let her lose her show
This endorsement stuff stinks of the Romney cabal. Every time there’s an endorsement flap you can guarantee the little Romney twits are behind it. Remember when they put out the garbage about Fred dropping out and endorsing McCain? Or even Bachmann yesterday. Then the target has to spend time straightening out the story instead of getting his message out.
Early in Rush’ show today he said that Gingrich’s campaign said they knew NOTHING about any Trump endorsement. That tells me Romney’s little trolls were feeding the false story to their media pals. That way the story now is Newt is PISSED, instead of one a billionaire endorses an out of touch rich guy who doesn’t care about poor people.
Post of the day for sure! you are 100 percent correct. Sometimes it is very humorous but mostly it is annoying.
Trump has no influence. It’s amazing that the media sees this as consequential. It’s amazing that Freepers consider this consequential.
This is just publicity for his tv show.
Being a proud birther, I was fooled by Trump. He said things I wanted to hear and I ignored the things I didn't want to be true. But now, it turns out, many of you were right all along. He is a shyster and an opportunist. I can't support anyone who supports Romney. I will NEVER vote for Romney. He will be our latest McCain. New Zealand is a little far, Canada is looking nicer & nicer.
Well if they really believe we are going to be there on election day
they are in for a very rude awakening, just like the rude awakening
they are giving to all of us every election season. If it were not for Sarah
last election cycle we would not have been with McCain. I DO NOT GIVE
A DAMN WHO THEY PUT ON THE TICKET WITH ROMNEY I WILL
NEVER, EVER VOTE FOR THE ESTABLISHMEMT AGAIN!!!!!!!
NAIL ON HEAD
People move up to the beltway or the north east and then over time become pro homo, pro cross dresser, liberal, etc
Romney will be meeting more of the elitist and over time like Bush become more liberal then he already is, if that is possible.
Obama vs Romney...or someone else? Cant support either of the two liberals. So who does that leave? Maybe Newt? I dont think he would abandon the GOP. Paul? Not much to choose from.
If Romney gets the nomination and Ron Paul goes 3rd party, I will vote Ron Paul over Romney. In that scenario RP odds are as good as Mitts in my opinion.
I want Gingrich. Go Newt!
Thank God. It's about time somebody got pissed off instead of whimpering away. I'm pissed off.
Look at the endorsements Newt has gotten as opposed to Romney. I'll side with Newt. Win or lose.
bahahaha wolf blitzer playing old clips of trump hammering romney.
bahahaha wolf blitzer playing old clips of trump hammering romney, and asking him to respond.
I agree on the “hard work” ...it also takes core values, intellect and the ability to articulate that intellect ...plus a whole lot of money ...and a large, efficient and effective organization helps a lot, too!
Newt didn't ask anyone to change the rules ...he asked the GOP to ABIDE BY THEIR OWN RULES. Don't fall for the propaganda.
