Donald Trump: I Got To Know Mike Huckabee, Rick Santorum ‘On The Trail, As They Say’

Frontrunner Donald Trump invited fellow GOP presidential candidates Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum to attend his fundraiser for veterans, after the two expressed interest in attending to support a good cause. Trump even brought them on stage with him to discuss issues involving veterans.

Trump said he had got to know both Huckabee and Santorum “on the trail, as they say.”

“We have Mike Huckabee sitting right here,” Trump said to the crowd asking Huckabee to stand, adding he’s a “great guy.”

“Where’s Rick?” Trump then questioned. “Come up here for a second.”

Trump then pointed to Mrs. Huckabee and Santorum’s daughter for recognition.

The crowd started chanting, “U-S-A, U-S-A.”

Trump asked Santorum and Huckabee say a few words.

Santorum took to the podium first, which was marked with a Trump campaign sign, and said even though they are competing against each other, “that doesn’t mean we can’t work together when it comes to our veterans and that’s what Mike and I are doing here tonight.”

He said it’s the people’s obligation to “make sure our veterans have the best possible healthcare in the world.”

“We can give them that by allowing any veteran go to any hospital” in their communities, he added.

Huckabee also took to the podium.

“Rick Santorum, Donald Trump and I may be competitors in a presidential race, but tonight we are colleagues in unison.” Huckabee said they are standing there on stage for the people who give Americans freedom.

The crowd again started chanting, “U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A!”

“I want to say how grateful I am for Donald Trump for inviting us here,” Huckabee added. “He’s not that kind of person” to act like no one else cares about veterans.

“It says something about him, that he would bring us here to his own event, because bigger than even the election is that we wouldn’t have free elections in this country” if it wasn’t for veterans, Huckabee added.
