Although Michele Bachmann is hosting a teletownhall with Donald Trump Monday evening, a senior aide for the real estate mogul told TRNS that the move should not be considered as an endorsement.
“This tele-town hall conference is a forum for Mr. Trump to speak, along with Michele Bachmann, to concerned Americans,” Michael Cohen, Trump’s Special Counsel, said. “It does not constitute an endorsement of her candidacy for President.”
In a statement sent to supporters Sunday evening, Bachmann said that the call was a chance to “hear from a businessman who knows firsthand that Barack Obama’s failed policies are crippling our nation’s job creators.”
“Together, Donald Trump and I will discuss the state of the race, along with the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead,” the release states.
Trump publicly flirted with a White House bid earlier this year, but ultimately declined to throw his hat into the ring. However, he has remained active in the 2012 election cycle by holding one-on-one meetings with Republican hopefuls.
