"I'm not just a flip-flopper, I'm a flip-flop-flipper on Trump"

J.D. Vance has said he needed to "suck it up and support" Donald Trump after deleting tweets critical of the former president.

Vance, a Republican running for Ohio's Senate seat in 2022, told Time in an interview published Wednesday: "I'm not just a flip-flopper, I'm a flip-flop-flipper on Trump."

Vance went on to call Trump "the leader of this movement" and said: "If I actually care about these people and the things I say I care about, I need to just suck it up and support him."
