LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Donald Trump has confirmed that he will endorse
Mitt Romney's GOP presidential bid. He says he made the decision
after getting to know Romney after meeting with him several times
in the past few months.
He also cited Romney's performances in presidential debates and
his tough stance on China as reasons.
Trump was set to announce his support for the Massachusetts
governor Thursday afternoon in Las Vegas.
He confirmed the endorsement while speaking with reporters
gathered at his Las Vegas hotel for the announcement.
Trump has said negative things about Romney in the past. But he
said his comments were a reflection of not knowing Romney well
Trump also said he would not run for president as an independent
if Romney becomes the GOP nominee.
