Sarah Palin Shares Why It Was Easy for Her to Pick Donald Trump Over Ted Cruz

During an interview with the "Today Show," host Savannah Guthrie asked Sarah Palin, "This was probably a tough call for you, between Sen. Ted Cruz and Donald Trump." Palin quickly responded, "It wasn't tough." Guthrie replied, "Really." Palin said again, "No, it wasn't tough."

Palin explained that Cruz was a fighter for the American people, but that she wanted him to stay in Washington D.C. She said, “I want to keep him in the Senate, and I want Donald Trump to be our president."

Guthrie then asked Palin if Trump was "the godly candidate" for evangelicals. Palin said, “I hope voters aren’t trying to find the most Christian-y godliest candidate out there because who are we to judge one another’s level of faith – our Christian quotient if you will."

Host Matt Lauer then implied that Trump wasn't that conservative. Palin referenced Ronald Reagan, and that she was "glad" that Donald Trump was the candidate that had "seen the light."

Co-host Willie Geist asked Palin what she brought to Trump's campaign by endorsing him. Trump said “I’m very, very conservative, very much a right-winger, proudly clinging to my God, my guns and my Constitution. I think I speak for a lot of Americans who have those same values.”

Palin added, “I think people are craving honesty and candidness and folks who are outside of that permanent political class that have been kind of part of the problem and, certainly, on the Republican side of the fence. That’s what we’re getting in Donald Trump’s candidacy, someone who is promising to restore Constitutional government, which is what we’ve wanted and expected.”
