SPRINGFIELD, Mo- Congressman Billy Long is telling Missourians it's time to get on team Trump.

The representative's comments are just ten days ahead of the highly anticipated Republican National Convention, and the party is still highly unsure of their presumptive nominee.

Jamie Deline spoke to Long about his Trump endorsement on Capitol Hill.

Protesters greeted Presidential Candidate Donald Trump on the Capitol Hill this morning. His mission? To unite the Republican Party. Missouri Congressman Billy Long endorses Trump. He's trying to get other republican congressmen to do the same. Long says he was pleased that Trump made the trip to Washington, D.C.

"I think they're…. the public likes Trump," says Long.

Republican Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan expressed confidence that Trump is working with the GOP Agenda.

House Minority Leader, Nancy Pelosi says there is no difference between Donald Trump and the worst of the Republican Party. And other Democrats agree. Ohio Congressman Tim Ryan says it's clear that Trump is not the best choice.

"I think he is terrible for places like Missouri, places like Ohio where working class people are going to end up on the short end of the stick like they did when they did business with him," says Ryan.

But many republicans like their chances with Trump.

"There's a movement. There are millions of people who say enough is enough, and they are stepping up and supporting his candidacy," says New York Congressman Tom Reed.

Missouri Congressman Long has this message for the people of Missouri.

"Get on the Trump train!"

Never heard of this representative: is he a descendant of the late Democrat Sen. Edward V. Long?

Huey Long should be so lucky. I lived for years in Springfield and used to listen to him on the radio. He made his fortune in real estate. He told a story about one of his daughters who won a full scholarship to Harvard or Yale and she hadn’t been there six weeks when one of her “professors” lectured about how he had proof that democrats had higher IQ’s than Republicans. The story made me chuckle at the time but to find that he has ran for Congress and won really makes me laugh. I wonder if he sent a note to that perfessor to inform him that even in America a poor retarded Republican boy do well.
