Sarah Palin: Time For Republicans to Unify Behind Trump

By    |   Saturday, 02 Apr 2016 10:36 AM

Sarah Palin called on Republicans Friday night to unify behind front-runner Donald Trump for the GOP presidential nomination.

Trump is the only one who understands "common sense is an endangered species in Washington," Palin, John McCain's 2008 running mate and a former Alaska governor, said at the Milwaukee County, Wisconsin, GOP dinner, reports Fox News.

"Donald Trump is the only one who really understands this reality," said Palin of the New York real estate tycoon, who was not at the dinner. "He's the only one who creates private sector jobs, balances budgets and builds things, he builds big things."

She went on to attack rivals Ted Cruz and Ohio Gov. John Kasich, who also attended the dinner, accusing them of "seducing [illegal immigrants] with gift baskets...come on over the border and we'll give you baskets of teddy bears and soccer balls."

"It's just inviting more. Candidates can say anything they want to about immigration, but actions scream so much louder than a politician's words," she said.

There were some snickers in the crowd, Fox reports, when Palin praised Trump as the only candidate who "talks rationally" about foreign policy and national security.

Later, at the same Wisconsin dinner, Sen. Ted Cruz took the stage and insisted that he is the one who is truly unifying the party.

When Cruz took the stage after being introduced by Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, he pointed out that the governor and four other former GOP presidential candidates, Rick Perry, Carly Fiorina, Jeb Bush, and Lindsey Graham are all backing his campaign and said this is the proof that he can unify the party.

"That is the very real manifestation of the unity we need across this country," he said. "If we are divided, we will lose the primary and hand the general election to Hillary Clinton."

He went on to tell the audience that nominating Trump would be a "train wreck," except that that comment was "actually not fair to train wrecks," and warned that a Trump nomination would result in Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton winning the White House.

Kasich told dinner guests that he understands the frustration Trump's supporters feel. The Ohio governor, who has also served in the U.S. House of Representatives, also insisted that he "never wanted to be a professional politicians" and that he doesn't like politics.
