Conservative talk radio host Glenn Beck says he decided to endorse a presidential candidate for the first time because he believes the 2016 election is America's last chance to change the direction of the country.

Beck has backed Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who he says has kept every promise he has made to voters even though he can get no one to stand with him.

"The next guy who comes into office is going to finish the fundamental transformation that was started by Woodrow Wilson and accelerated through Barack Obama," Beck said Monday on Fox News Channel's "The Kelly File."

"We're headed for real trouble. Islamic trouble, economic trouble and civil unrest in the next four, five years. This next president is going to either finish and we're going to become a nation where the pen and the phone are the way to rule, or we're going to have somebody who has the Constitution in their bones and they're going to repoint this cornerstone and set it right and give us a new start."

Front-runner Donald Trump has ridiculed Beck in wake of his endorsement, but Beck said the important thing isn't himself or Trump, but the Constitution.

"When trouble comes, just like in World War II, would you round up Japanese people? I know I wouldn't," Beck said. But, he added, "When people are afraid, when they're hungry or we're at war, they'll violate all kinds of principles. Let's not start with a guy who doesn't know the principles."
