NEVER-Trump Erick Erickson Endorses Trump For 2020 Presidency


Conservative columnist Erick Erickson, who declared himself “Never Trump” during the 2016 election, endorsed President Trump for reelection in 2020 on Monday.

In a column on his site, The Resurgent, Erickson writes that some of his concerns about Trump remain, but that the president and Vice President Pence have “earned [his] vote.”

“I still struggle on the character issue and I understand Christian friends who would rather sit it out than get involved,” Erickson writes. “But I also recognize that we cannot have the Trump Administration policies without President Trump and there is much to like.”

The columnist says he voted third-party in 2016, but that “the path of opting out or protesting now … seems irrelevant.”

He also echoes Trump’s criticism of the media as an “anti-Trump operation,” saying, “The daily litany of misreported and badly reported stories designed to paint this Administration in a negative light continues to amaze me.”


Erickson is amazed that there are still people who act and sound like 2015-era Erick Erickson.

  1. The first of many.

    All should be welcomed back into the fold- or rather: all votes are welcome. Some of the never Trumpers like Beck (anyone who said ‘Hillary is a better option’) can have no forgiveness in this political life (2020) or the next political life to come (2028 and beyond).

    I want to win in 2020 and holding grudges with people who should be our brethren is counter to that goal. And whoever the Dems put forward in 2020 is going to be Batcrap crazy and will need to be utterly destroyed and Trump is the man for the job.

  2. The problem with these NeverTrumpers is that they got themselves so riled up during the primary and they could never calm down and think rationally. I supported Cruz in the primary and I had my doubts about Trump but the alternative to Trump was Hilary F*ing Clinton. Not rocket science. But hey. Glad to have more people on our side. The 2020 election is going to be Civil War part 2. We need all the votes we can get.

  3. “I still struggle on the character issue…”

    ? Hilldog had better character? His 3rd party candyass had better character?

    Go away asshole.

  4. I’m surprised this guy hasn’t blocked me. My impression is he’s had to defend Trump a lot lately from the Libtards that follow him. But, the SOTU pushed him over the edge. If he can help the cause and is sincere I say welcome.
    Lil Ben, not so much.

  5. I have a hard time trusting people like him because they don’t appear to have any personal convictions. They just bend with whatever they think the populist wind is at the time.

  6. All will be forgiven if he says “yes, I admit it, I suck at what I do and you’re smarter than me, and the corporate backers who bankroll me are making a mistake. They should be backing the people who supported Trump from day 1 because they saw things I am incapable of seeing.”

  7. This guy is a Globalist. He was going nuts while DJT was slapping Tariffs on China. It was the end of the world. Lil Ben was even worse. Neither one of these guys has come out and acknowledged the brilliance of Trump. Why they couldn’t see WE are Chinas market is beyond me. I changed my mind. Fuck him.

  8. @Burner
    “He musta done his taxes last weekend.”
    Yup – and he saw how far his income has dropped due to lost followers.

  9. Good. Does that mean you’ve finally given up hope the arrival of the “Pee Pee Tapes”? I see you have deleted your “Pee Pee Tape” tweets is why I’m asking.

    Too bad your boy Medved couldn’t keep up. Are you worried about Hugh Hewitt? He’s having a tough time, too.

  10. BFH, the Cox media geniuses who own WSB recently chopped an hour off Hannity’s radio show and moved Erickson into that hour, largely predicated on his “principled” nevertrumpery. They are not going to like Erick Erickson 2.0. Or maybe they’ll learn to like him if his ratings go up. If. Personally, I think he’ll jump ship at the next media uproar about Trump.

  11. sometimes I wish there was an American gulag where we could send the likes of this guy and everyone else who flip flops without grovelling to us about how stupid they are.

    Fact is, why is anyone paying attention to this loser? He makes me think of those memes “You only had one job.”

  12. The great and almighty Thumb has spoken.
    There are better people to follow on the web. I don’t have the time for the Thumb.

  13. Fur: “They should be backing the people who supported Trump from day 1 because they saw things I am incapable of seeing.”

    You said a mouthful.

  14. Who pays any attention to him? I never liked him and honestly never gave a shit what he said long before Trump. Too be honest very few of these so called conservatives I have ever liked, but he was on the bottom of that list.

  15. In light of some of his current tweets, he’s trolling everyone. It’s got to be tough wanting so badly to be the smartest man in the room, and not being able to keep up with the conversation.

  16. That jerk makes $$$ while those who supported Trump right from the start still struggle to break into the Conservative Pundit arena. Sirius radio are you listening? The U.S. & Eh?! Show has been spot on with analysis and predictions.
