Former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum has “100 percent” endorsed Donald Trump for President.

In an interview with Greta Van Susteren on Fox News, Santorum said, “I had a good conversation with Donald… he asked for my endorsement, and I said what I needed was to deal with the most important issue… My number one thing was, give me a list of [Supreme Court] candidates that you will pick from, and pledge to pick from that list, and if those names are names that I can support, I’ll support you for President.”

Van Susteren asked what Santorum thought about Trump’s list of potential Supreme Court nominees.

“They are solid folks, they will preserve the Constitution, and that is the most important thing we can have in this election,” Santorum said.

Van Susteren then asked if that counts as an endorsement.

“I’m 100 percent,” Santorum said. “That’s endorse. The most important issue is preserving the Constitution of this country, and a liberal Supreme Court will destroy it.”
