Former 2016 GOP presidential candidate Sen. Rick Santorum endorsed presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump on Tuesday. Trump responded to the endorsement, saying it was a “great honor.”

“The most important issue is preserving the Constitution of this country, and a liberal Supreme Court will destroy it,” Santorum stated during an interview on Fox News in which he endorsed Trump after revealing the two spoke a week ago and Trump asked for his support.

“Over the past several weeks, I’ve had numerous conversations with senior members of the Trump Campaign, including a long heart-to-heart with Donald Trump,” Santorum explained of his decision to endorse. “I am committed to working with Donald and his Administration to ensure that conservative priorities are advanced — not simply judicial nominees, but nominees to key administration positions.”

Trump tweeted about the endorsement saying it’s “really nice!”
