On Sunday, February 28, US Senator Jeff Sessions (R-Alabama) endorsed New York City billionaire businessman and reality television star Donald Trump to be the next President of the United States.
Speaking in front of an estimated crowd of 30,000 in Madison Stadium, Sen. Sessions said, “This is not a campaign. This is a movement.” Sessions said that the American people are not happy. They have been telling politicians to do something to fix immigration for thirty years and the politicians have done nothing. “Donald Trump will do it.”
Senator Sessions has never endorsed a presidential candidate during the primary season before, but on Sunday he announced, “At this time in American history we need to make America great again. I am proud to endorse Donald Trump for the President of the United States.”
Sessions told the crowd, “The bosses are you. The people in Washington are public servants.”
Donald Trump said, “Wow! That is so great. He is an incredible guy.”
Senator Jeff Sessions is the first sitting US Senator to endorse Donald Trump for President. The high profile endorsement follows closely on the heels of endorsements by New Jersey Governor Chris Christie (R), former Arizona Governor Jan Brewer (R), and Maine Governor Paul LePage (R). Former New York City Mayor Rudi Giuliani (R) and former Alaska Governor Sara Palin (R) had already endorsed Trump for President.
Donald Trump told the cheering crowds, “We are going to make our country so great.” “You are going to be proud of your President.”
Trump attacked his GOP rival, US Senator Marco Rubio (R-Florida) calling him “Little Marco.” He was sweating so hard at the debate, “I thought he just got out of a swimming pool.” Little Marco Rubio is not a light weight he is a total featherweight. “I don’t want him negotiating for us.” Trump said that Rubio bought a house for $145,000 and sells it to a lobbyist for $380,000, a lobbyist he does business with.
Trump also attacked “lying” Ted Cruz. Trump said, “I am totally against Obamacare.” Obama lied when he said that you can keep your plan and keep your doctor.
Trump said, “I don’t think they are as bad as the press. They don’t report accurately. When they don’t report accurately, we should have the right to sue.” Trump criticized the libel laws and the New York Times as being dishonest. Trump said that the New York Times was either going to go bankrupt or get bought out by somebody.
Trump said, “Hillary (Clinton) should not be allowed to run because she broke laws.”
Trump said that when Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont) allowed two women to take the microphone away from him, “He looks so weak and so pathetic. No microphone will be taken away from me.”
Mr. Trump warned that we are $19 trillion in debt and are about to add $2 trillion to that.
Trump said that we should focus on defeating ISIS and not worry about toppling Assad in Syria. “What is wrong with Russia dropping bombs all over ISIS?” What is wrong with having Russia side with us?
Trump said that he knows China. Chinese banks lease commercial space from him in San Francisco. They are taking $500 billion a year from us. They send stuff over here and when our manufacturers send stuff over there, if they can send it over there, then a big tariff and tax is added to it. Trump said that he respects Chinese leaders and wished our leaders were doing that to them, “If they were I would not be running.”
Trump criticized former Mexican President Vincente Fox for using a bad word when refusing to pay to build the wall between the US and Mexico. Trump said that when he heard that, “The wall just got ten feet higher.”
Trump called Karl Rove a fool and a moron and said that if the Republican Party listened to Rove then the Party could go twenty years without winning again.
Trump blasted corporate America for moving jobs to Mexico. He said that when he is President he would telephone the head guy at Carrier and ask them how they were enjoying the new air conditioning factory and weather in Mexico and then tell them that there is going to be a 35 percent tariff added to every air conditioner they import back into the United States and that he would do the same thing with Ford and Nabisco.
Trump told his supporters, “I don’t want your money. I want you to go vote on Tuesday.” “I love you. I love you people.”
The three biggest political rallies in Alabama this year were: Donald Trump in Mobile, Donald Trump in Madison, and Donald Trump in Birmingham.
The Alabama Republican Primary is on Tuesday, March 1.
