“I will, I will, at the end of the day, I will,” Perry said. “Senator Clinton has a different philosophical view than I do about what government’s role is. She believes the government and Washington, D.C., needs to be even strengthened more and more power put into Washington, D.C. I disagree with that and I disagree with it powerfully.”

Last June, Perry said Trump’s candidacy would be a “cancer on conservatism” that “must be clearly diagnosed, excised, and discarded.” (RELATED: Megyn Kelly To Face Down Donald Trump On Network Television)

“When you look back four years ago,” Perry said Wednesday, “had Mitt Romney said some of the things that [Trump] said, we would have written him off and it would have probably been the end of his nomination.”
