Gov. Rick Scott on Ted Cruz’s Speech: ‘If You’re Not Supporting Donald Trump, You’re Supporting Hillary Clinton’

Prior to the 2016 presidential race, Donald Trump (L) and Hillary Clinton had a friendly business, political and personal relationship

Asked about Ted Cruz’s speech last night at the Republican National Convention, Florida Gov. Rick Scott told Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM host Stephen K. Bannon, “There’s two people who are going to be on the ballot – Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. So if you’re not supporting Donald Trump, then you’re supporting Hillary Clinton. It’s time to unify the party. It’s time to make sure we win in November. I don’t want four more years of Barack Obama’s policies.”

“This is about the very survival of the American dream. This is about what’s going to happen to our country,” Scott added.

“This is a great time in America. You get to fire the politicians. There’s no one better to do that than Donald Trump,” he said, adding, “We’re going to take back our country. We’re going to say we believe in the American dream. We believe in individual rights. We believe in the right to live the dream of this country, and that’s what Donald Trump is going to do,” as opposed to Hillary Clinton.

Scott also said he believes Trump can–and will–win Florida:

It’s a big state. To win the presidency, you have to win Florida. I think Donald Trump is going to have a big win. Last polls I saw, he’s up by two or three points. It’s very similar to my race in 2010. I was an outsider, business person, never having run for office, and I talked about what’s important to Americans.

“I think there’s so much more energy with Donald.” Scott cited large rallies and independent observations to support his view. “If you go talk to the average person, they’re excited about Donald Trump. Go to a barber shop. All they’re talking about is Donald Trump. They’re not talking about Hillary Clinton.”
