Finally, the nod nobody was waiting for. CNBC reports:
Calling 2016 the “year of the outsider,” former Vice President Dan Quayle told CNBC on Thursday that Donald Trump can beat Hillary Clinton.
“He knows how to win,” Quayle, who’s backing Trump, said in a “Squawk Box” interview. “He knocked off 16 Republican and a lot of them were really good, solid people and would have been good presidents.”
Trump arrived at GOP headquarters in Washington on Thursday to meet with House Speaker Paul Ryan, who said last week he’s “not ready” to support the businessman-turned-presumptive-GOP-presidential nominee. The two hope to open a dialogue aimed at unifying the Republican Party.
Quayle, vice president under George H.W. Bush, said he “not going to get into Paul Ryan’s head,” but believes the speaker was buying time with those comments because Texas Sen. Ted Cruz folded so quickly after Indiana.
