Walker said he would support real estate mogul Donald Trump if he’s the GOP presidential nominee — though it’s clear the governor’s still hoping that doesn’t happen. Trump scored a sweeping victory in Tuesday’s New York primary.
“I will support the Republican running against (Democratic front-runner) Hillary Clinton in the fall — whoever that is,” Walker said at a news conference in Wauwatosa on Wednesday morning.
Even if Trump is the nominee?
“Yeah,” Walker said, declining to say Trump’s name. “To me, I think it’s preferable to have a Republican nominee over Hillary Clinton. I think there’s a lot of distress not only amongst Republicans and independents, but I think part of Bernie Sanders’ support is because a lot of young voters, in particular, don’t trust her.”
