Portman May Have Endorsed Kasich, But He Still Admires Trump

Jan 09, 2016

Senator Rob Portman dutifully endorsed his home-state governor, John Kasich, for president today. But that doesn’t mean he isn’t a big-time fan of frontrunner Donald Trump.

Sen. Portman’s insisted that he would support Trump as the GOP nominee, and even encouraged other candidates to adopt Trump’s “get it done” message.

Portman’s admiringly called Trump’s message “very compelling” and mused that it’s “broader than a policy position or an ideological bent.” 

Apparently there’s some je ne sais quoi about Donald Trump’s hateful, xenophobic rhetoric that really appeals to him.
