GOP Governor Backs Trump After Condemning January 6th

New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu has reaffirmed his support for former President Donald Trump in the 2024 general election despite some reservations about Trump’s actions and legal issues. In an interview on ABC News’ “This Week,” Sununu reiterated his endorsement of Nikki Haley in the GOP primary but said he would support Trump if he becomes the Republican nominee.



“Previously, you’ve said these charges are serious and Trump should drop out of the race if he’s convicted. Do you still believe that?” Stephanopoulos asked.

Sununu was pressed by anchor George Stephanopoulos about his previous criticisms of Trump, particularly his stance on the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and Trump’s legal troubles. Sununu stood by his 2021 comments that Trump’s actions contributed to the Jan. 6 insurrection and condemned election denialism.

However, Sununu has shifted his position regarding Trump’s candidacy if he is convicted in one of his criminal cases. In a previous interview, Sununu suggested Trump should drop out if convicted. Now, he argues that it would not be reasonable for Trump to end his campaign upon conviction and emphasized the importance of cultural change within the Republican Party.

Despite his criticisms, Sununu believes many Americans are dissatisfied with the federal government and support Trump as a symbol of change. Sununu stated that the decision to back Trump is about more than just the former president himself and involves a broader desire for change among the American public.
