Former Mayor of New York Rudy Giuliani told the New York Post that he will be voting for Donald Trump in the April 19th New York primary.
“I support Trump. I’m gonna vote for Trump,” Giuliani told the Post Thursday.
“America’s Mayor” also told the Post he expects Trump to get more than 50% of the vote and capture “a lion’s share” of the delegates.
“It’s a question of how much he gets over 50 percent. If he wins 70 to 80 delegates, Donald has a good shot of securing the 1,237 delegates to secure the nomination before the convention,” Giuliani said.
Rudy said Cruz’s remarks about “New York values” to score political points did not sit well with the mayor. “It’s New York City. We’re family. I can make fun of New York. But you can’t!” he said.
“I know he was attacking liberal Democratic values. … I know. I fought to change those policies in areas like welfare reform and policing, as did Mike Bloomberg. … There was a better way to say it.”
Giuliani says he doesn’t agree with all of Trump’s positions but likes his focus on immigration, security, and the economy.
“Trump is a negotiator. He negotiates from a high bar to get people’s attention. Threatening to withdraw from NATO will get a better deal with NATO,” Giuliani said.
