Donald Trump can count on a vote from Rudy Giuliani, just not a formal endorsement. A rep for the former NYC mayor says Giuliani will vote for Trump in the state's April 19 primary, reports the Wall Street Journal, which adds, "Even without an official endorsement, Mr. Giuliani’s vote is a boost for Mr. Trump." More explicitly, Giuliani tells the New York Post: "I support Trump. I'm gonna vote for Trump."
A longtime friend of Trump, per the Journal, Giuliani has been informally advising the billionaire's campaign. And in February, he told attendees at an Illinois fundraiser that they should vote for the candidate who "talks about how great they are." Giuliani tells the Post that he doesn't support all of Trump's positions, but is on board when it comes to the economy, immigration, and security. "Trump is a negotiator," he says. "Threatening to withdraw from NATO will get a better deal with NATO." (More New York stories.)
