Sarah Palin Endorses GOP Presidential Candidate Donald Trump

Former Alaska governor and 2008 vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin has endorsed Donald Trump for president, marking the highest-profile endorsement of a Republican candidate in the 2016 race. Palin made the announcement in Iowa, a state where her backing could give Trump a boost less than two weeks before the caucus.

Sarah Palin: "He, better than anyone—isn’t he known for being able to command, fire? Are you ready for a commander-in-chief? You ready for a commander-in-chief who will let our warriors do their job and go kick ISIS ass? Ready for someone who will secure our borders, to secure our jobs and to secure our homes? Ready to make America great again? Are you ready to stump for Trump?"

Today’s New York Daily News cover shows a photo of Palin and Trump pointing at each other with the headline "I’m with Stupid." Less than 24 hours before she endorsed Trump, Palin’s 26-year-old son, Track, was arrested for allegedly hitting and kicking his girlfriend and pointing an AR-15 assault rifle at her.
