J.C. Watts: 'I've Got to Be Sold a Little Bit More' on Trump

Former Oklahoma Rep. J.C. Watts tells Newsmax TV  he needs more convincing before he can back Donald Trump for president.

Watts was a supporter of Sen. Rand Paul before he dropped out of the GOP presidential race, and told "The Steve Malzberg Show" he has been as "intrigued and perplexed as every other voter" in trying to decide on another candidate.

"In my opinion, you could have some candidates that are worse and, pardon my broken English here, worse and worser," he said.

Trump "creates some issues with me," Watts said, but not as a Republican.

"As a believer, I'm somewhat perplexed that Jerry Falwell Jr. and Robert Jeffress would jump over a Ben Carson, a Rand Paul, a Ted Cruz, John Kasich, name any of them to get to a very pro-choice, pro-same-sex marriage, pro-abortion," candidate like Trump, he said.

Watts said he isn't judging Trump, because he doesn't know Trump's heart, but said he can judge some of his actions.

"About a week ago, he came out saying good things about Planned Parenthood, knowing what they've done," Watts said.

Though Trump says he is now pro-life, Watts said that's one of the issues that needs to be sorted out.

"I've got to be sold a little bit more," he said.

Watts' new book is "Dig Deep: 7 Truths to Finding the Strength Within."
