Veteran conservative activist Phyllis Schlafly endorsed Donald Trump Friday in St. Louis.

Schlafly told the crowd, “I asked him to stand by the Republican platform because we have the best conservative platform we’ve ever had and he endorses it. He will stand by it. He is a real conservative and I ask you to support him.”

The crowd erupted with cheers as she continued saying, “I’m confident that Donald Trump will appoint judges like [Justice Antonin] Scalia.”

Schlafly added that “we’ve been following the losers for so long,” but that would change with Trump.

“Now we’ve got a guy who’s gonna lead us to victory!” she said.
