    Who cares? Donald Chump does not have ANY influnce with 95% of America, and nor should he. The 5% that he could influence will be influenced by who ever is telling the prettiest lies, or who ever is yelling the loudest anyway.

    Now there's some real value-add.

    I wonder what self-promoting event this date corresponds to? I would think that this narcissistic blowhard would be more attracted to the other narcissistic blowhard Newt Gingrich. Maybe there's not enough oxygen in any room to hold both of them at one time.

    There went my support for Romney. If Trump supports him I sure can't. Trump may be a a financial wizard but he has the heart of a shark. He will destroy his own kind for his personal pleasure.

    Great news for the GOP

    Newt, it is time for you to unite behind the Party for the good of the country as you cannot possibly hope to win the nomination - and you would have no chance of beating Obama.

    Do the right thing Newt - for once in your life

    this is not new news – didn't you see the donald along with the newter in that photo way back during the s.c. primary ? He said he was waiting to endorse – everyone already knew he was going to endorse the newter. when he came out in front of that microphone, with the newter, in n.h. or s.c. anyway – it's all about the money – whomever wins, it will be all about the money, and who spends the most.

    Won't matter a single bit. Obama's getting another four years.

    As soon as Trump heard Romney state his total lack of concern about the very poor he decided "Mitt is my guy!"

    More useless information from the Trump. Nobody cares except his ego.

    Trumps endorsement is NEWS why? Even as a Republican, Trumps endorsement is the equivalent of a Catholic Priest recommending a babysitter.

    Wow. If true, what a slap in the face to Newt. The Donald is just as sneaky as the rest of them.
