Watch: Santorum, Huckabee Join Trump on Stage


Thursday at the Trump rally at Drake University in Des Moines, IA, GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump welcomed fellow presidential candidates former Gov. Mike Huckabee (R-AR) and former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA) to the stage to speak to the group of veterans attending the event.

Santorum said he would not stand behind the Trump sign because he is supporting another candidate, but he added, “That does not mean we cannot work together when it comes to helping our veterans.”

When Huckabee got up to the podium, he stated, “The easy thing for [Donald Trump] to do is simply ignore that anybody else cares about veterans. He is not that kind of person. I want to say thank you Donald Trump for asking Rick Santorum and me come. For reasons I do not understand, the [other GOP presidential candidates] are not here. Some of them have a slot at 8:00. I had nothing to do at 8:00 tonight. But it says something about him that he would bring us here to his own event because, bigger than even the election, is the fact that we would not have free elections in this country if not for the people that stood between bullets, bombs and our freedoms.”
