Governor Bobby Jindal (R-LA), when running for President, didn’t always see eye-to-eye with conservative businessman Donald J. Trump.
No longer in the race, Jindal has watched the political establishment attack and smear Trump… They have called Trump “racist,” “bigoted,” and even shared pictures from his wife’s modeling days.
But Jindal has had enough! He has rejected the “Never Trump” movement, and made a bold announcement that he’s standing WITH Trump!
“The GOP establishment is done for,” he said on MSNBC’s Meet the Press. “This race shows that.”
Jindal believes Trump’s success is a “death knell” for establishment Republicans, who don’t seem to understand why the primary voting base is so upset.
He noted, “[Republican] voters are angry and frustrated and, in some part, the Republican Party deserves some of that frustration. Donald Trump should serve as a wake-up call.”
He also opposes a brokered convention, as any movement to steal the election from Trump would discredit party leadership. He reminded GOP leaders that “When huge chunks of your base are telling you something, you have to listen to them. Let the voters speak.” Otherwise, the establishment would be “ignoring the will of the voters.”
Jindal will support Trump if he’s the Republican nominee, and is encouraging the rest of his party to do so.
