In a Wednesday appearance on Fox News, former GOP presidential candidate and Godfather’s Pizza CEO Herman Cain said he would support Donald Trump were he to win the GOP nomination.
In the interview on “Your World with Neil Cavuto,” Cain also said that those in the party establishment vowing to torpedo Trump’s campaign were he to be nominated were “insane and irresponsible.”
“I think they ought to stand back and get over it,” Cain said of the party establishment threatening to go nuclear on Trump. “Support whoever the nominee is, is what the mantra ought to be for the Republicans.”
Cain saved his greatest scorn for Mitt Romney, whose negative statements about Trump’s tax returns have caused controversy and division even among party members. Cain called Romney’s statement a “grenade” and said all he did was provide fodder for liberals.
“It would give all of the na-na-na-na-na naysayers out there more stuff to go after, to continue to throw stuff into the wind,” Cain said.
