The American Conservatives, a conservative magazine that publishes columns by conservative figures, has endorsed Donald Trump as the GOP nominee, calling him “a proven winner.”
“Donald Trump has earned the endorsement of the American Conservative,” the magazine said in a statement.
“Trump has earned it because he has proved to the American public that he is a man of action and not the quiet type who prefers to remain quiet and take credit for his accomplishments.”
The American Conservative is a conservative publication with the title The American Progressive, which is published by the Republican National Committee.
The group has endorsed Republican candidates for the presidency since 2008, including Mitt Romney and George W. Bush.
It has not endorsed Trump, though the publication has endorsed other Republican candidates, including Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky.
In a column for the American Progressive earlier this month, American Conservative editor Charles Krauthammer said that Trump is the only candidate who can be counted on to bring “the American Dream to the country.”
“He is a proven winner,” Krauthampf said.
“He will bring America back to its true greatness.
He will make America great again.””
I have been a long-time admirer of Donald Trump,” Krautammer wrote.
“I think he is one of the best politicians of his generation.
And as a patriot, I am proud to endorse him for President of the United States.”
