Trump told Bolling he does not see an upside to vowing to support other candidates. “Why would I sign a pledge?” he asked. “There are people on there that I wouldn’t have. I wouldn’t have certain people as, you know, somebody that I’d endorse.” After he again said there are numerous people he could never support for president who have made the debate cut, he said, “So, right there, there’s a problem, okay? Right there, there’s a problem.”

Bolling asked the former president if he would be willing to share the names of candidates he could never support, but Trump declined. “I don’t wanna do that, there’s no reason to insult them, but there are some people there that a lot of people wouldn’t endorse,” he said. As far as debating people who are not resonating with primary voters, Trump said there is very little upside. “Somebody like Asa Hutchinson, who’s polling at zero, will ask me nasty questions,” he said. “Somebody like Chris Christie, he’s polling at 1 percent and he’s going to ask me nasty questions, and others too.” Trump did offer praise for two people who will be on the stage in two weeks in Milwaukee. “I mean, Tim Scott has been very nice, and Ramaswamy has been very, very nice,” he said. “I mean, these are, you know, very capable people, very good people.” “But why would you do that when you’re leading by so much?” he asked. “Ronald Reagan didn’t do it, Nixon didn’t do it — many people didn’t do it. But I’m going to look at it seriously.” He has yet to make a final decision on the matter, he concluded. This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
