Donald Trump Scores First Endorsement From a U.S. Senator

Tea party leader Jeff Sessions of Alabama appeared on stage at a Trump rally in Madison, Alabama, on Sunday

On Sunday, Alabama Republican Jeff Sessions became the first U.S. Senator to endorse Donald Trump.

Sessions appeared on stage at a Trump rally in Madison, Alabama, to voice his support for the GOP presidential candidate, two days after New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie made the same endorsement.

“He’s really the expert as far as I’m concerned on borders, on so many things,” Trump said while introducing Sessions, according to Politico. “When I talk about immigration and when I talk about illegal immigration and everything else, I think about a great man.”

“I told Donald Trump this isn’t a campaign, this is a movement,” Sessions said, promising that Trump would fix the country’s immigration system. “Look at what’s happening. The American people are not happy with their government.”

“At this time, in my best judgment, at this time in America’s history, we need to make America great again,” he continued.
