Ron Paul claimed he didn’t get the endorsement of Donald Trump because he was the only Republican presidential “candidate that didn’t kiss his ring.”
Paul hit at his GOP rivals for meeting with the billionaire real estate mogul in 2011, the State Column reports. Mitt Romney, who met with Trump in late September but denied media access to the encounter, received Trump’s endorsement Feb. 2, just days ahead of the 2012 Nevada Caucuses.
In an interview with Fox 13 News, Paul downplayed the value of Trump’s endorsement, saying he “can’t imagine why anybody talks about him.”
