Dick Cheney Does Not Endorse Donald Trump (Yet)

Dick Cheney doesn’t endorse reality-TV-caricature-turned-presidential-candidate Donald Trump today, but that doesn’t mean he wouldn’t in the future. Heck, he’d probably even vote for him (if given no other choice but to vote against the GOP, that is).

CNN’s special correspondent Jamie Gangel sat down for an interview with the former vice president and his daughter Liz Cheney about the upcoming election and the current Republican frontrunner, Trump.

In a clip that aired on Monday morning’s “New Day,” Gangel asked Cheney what he thought of the spectacle the real estate mogul has created.

“Well, again, he’s a candidate and I don’t want to be in the business of rating candidates at this point, grading them. I have not signed on with anybody and I don’t plan to today,” he said.

Gangel then confirmed, “You’re not endorsing Donald Trump today,” to which Cheney responded in agreement, “I’m not endorsing Donald Trump today.”

However, when asked if he’d vote for The Donald, the politician said, “I will support the nominee of my party, as I always have. I think it’s very important.”

You can watch the clip at CNN. The full interview will air on “Anderson Cooper 360″ Tuesday night at 8 p.m.
