Fmr Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman: ‘I Have Concerns’ About Trump

Former Utah Gov. and 2012 GOP presidential candidate Jon Huntsman told New York AM 970 radio host John Catsimatidis on his show “The Cats Roundtable” that while he will support presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump, he does have some concerns.

“I have said that I’d support the party’s nominee, and [Trump] is our party’s nominee, therefore I try to look for the good. Certainly, I have concerns about some of the things he’s said and stylistic approaches, but then I say, ‘OK, he has a unique opportunity to bring together constituencies under the Republican banner that really have never been joined before maybe to bring back the Reagan Democrats to bring folks into politics who have been disenfranchised,'” Huntsman said.

He then added, “The campaign is just ramping up, and he has a long way to go, and I believe the candidates grow and develop during the course of a yearlong campaign and voters are able to see them for what they are and then make an informed decision.”
