McCrory on Trump: ‘Best of America’


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Donald Trump was not the only candidate locked in a tight battle in North Carolina to visit Wilmington today. Gov. Pat McCrory was one of the dignitaries at Trump’s rally at Air Wilmington.

McCrory spoke out against his opponent Democrat Roy Cooper.

McCrory again publicly supported Trump against Hillary Clinton in the presidential race.

“We need an outsider to clean up Washington, DC, just like we had an outsider clean up Raleigh, NC,” McCrory said. “This is the best of America.”

Trump thanked McCrory for always being loyal to him since day one and endorsed McCrory as the right choice for governor.

Critics slammed McCrory for his support of Trump.

“Gov. McCrory called Donald Trump a ‘role model’ and is closing his flailing campaign by doubling down on his support for someone who brags about sexually assaulting women, attacks a Gold Star family and makes fun of the disabled,” Cooper campaign spokesman Jamal Little said in a news release. “North Carolina deserves better.”
