Glenn Beck, former Fox News pundit-turned-Blaze media baron, admitted during his recent broadcast he’s been wrong about the “entire election” so far, but that if GOP presumptive nominee Donald Trump wins the White House and builds a border wall, as promised, he would actually issue an apology.
“I’ve been wrong this entire election, so maybe Donald Trump wins,” said Beck, who supported Sen. Ted Cruz for the Republican Party’s nomination, the Daily Caller reported.
He also said: “Donald Trump is the face of the GOP. Well that makes us crony capitalists, it makes us wafflers, it makes us pretty racist. It makes us big government guys. You name it, it makes us that. Well, I’m none of those things. And so I can’t say, ‘well, these are my friends,’ because that’s my future. I won’t tolerate it. I don’t want my children to look at that man and say, ‘Yeah, he’s my president.’ I won’t have that. I will not endorse it. I will not tolerate it.”
He doubled down on that point and said that for his “children’s sake, for the Constitution’s sake, for the party’s sake,” he could not tolerate a Trump presidency – and that in fact, a Trump White House was only the most distant of possibilities anyway.
“Hillary Clinton is going to win,” Beck predicted.
But he also added a caveat, admitting his error in believing Cruz would win the GOP nod.
“Now I say that with the caveat of I’ve been wrong this entire election, so maybe Donald Trump wins,” Beck said. “But let me tell you this. One way or another, he’s not going to build the wall. And if he does, then I’ll apologize to him on that day, but he’s not going to build that wall and Mexico is not going to pay for it. And if he does, I will apologize on that day.”
Beck then predicted gloom and doom for the Republican Party, which he saw as in its final days or relevance.
“Here’s what happens, because Donald Trump is the GOP candidate, and I believe Hillary Clinton is going to win because of this, you will never elect another GOP person to high office ever again, because what’s going to happen is now you are going to have Hillary Clinton legalize as many voters as you can, the GOP is going to be completely racist whether it’s true or not because of Donald Trump,” he said. “You will never have another Republican president ever again.”
