Famed talk show host Larry Elder has dropped out of the 2024 presidential race and endorsed former President Donald Trump.

In a statement released on Thursday, Elder said that former President Donald Trump has his “full support to Make America Great Again, end the epidemic of fatherless homes, reign in spending, and restore law & order.”

After expressing his “deepest gratitude” to his supporters, Elder repeated some of the issues he raised during his campaign, primarily the issue of fatherless homes and the “dangerous lie that America is systemically racist.” He also raised alarm about the epidemic of George Soros-backed DAs allowing for lawlessness around the country.

“The breakdown of the family structure and the absence of positive father figures in the lives of many children have far-reaching consequences for our society, including the crime wave we are currently seeing in America today,” he said. “I hope that my campaign has helped shine a light on these critical issues and sparked important conversations about how we can solve them.”

After regretfully announcing the end of his campaign, Elder endorsed Trump for president, advising Republicans to unite behind him in the effort to defeat Joe Biden in the 2024 general election.

“Although I am suspending my campaign for president, my commitment to addressing the crisis of fatherlessness, promoting conservative ideals, and supporting the MAGA movement remains unwavering. I will continue to work tirelessly to advocate for the issues that matter most to the American people. Thank you again for your support. May God bless you all, and may He continue to bless the United States of America,” he said.

As Breitbart News reported, Elder, who previously failed to unseat Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom in the California gubernatorial recall election, polled only at one percent during the primary race alongside Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson. As a result, he could not participate in any of the debates.
