Wednesday March 9th, 2016

Donald Trump continued his quest for the Republican presidential nomination on Tuesday, winning the Republican primaries in both Michigan and Mississippi.

How has Trump continued to win? It helps to have a group of committed a supporters. A group, it turns out, which includes former New York Yankee Paul O’Neill. 

O’Neill won five World Series championships with the Yankees. Tuesday, he was receiving a shout-out from Trump during the candidate’s victory speech.

O’Neill, a self-described “big Trump supporter,” also took some time to chat with The Donald. 

Trump currently leads all Republicans in delegates needed to secure the nomination.
