Walter Block: I Will Continue to Be a Supporter of Donald Trump

It appears Walter Block has just given unconditional suppport to someone who is likley to be  major global war monger and domestic authoritarian.

I would never given unconditional support to any politician but here is Walter's statement via LewRockwell.com:

I would like to set the record straight regarding my assessment of Donald Trump in his capacity to be a good president of the U.S. I was in the past a supporter of his, I am still a supporter of his, and shall in the future still be a supporter of his, even if, in future, he does things that I oppose (in the latter case, I’ll thank my lucky stars that he beat Hillary in the presidential race). I was amongst those instrumental in starting up two groups: Libertarians for Trump and Scholars for Trump. For further evidence of this contention, see below:

Summary
1. Dr. Nick Gillespie has his own central planning industrial policy: factory jobs are bad.
2. The supreme court is unimportant. So what that Hillary will appoint more pinkos
3. Free association is unimportant. So what that the baker had to pay a fine of $130,000 for refusing to service a gay wedding
4. The rust belt had nothing to do with unions
5. He kept interrupting me all throughout the debate
6. He refused to rank Hillary vs. Donald
7. He’s a thick libertarian: if you’re not wildly enthusiastic about inter-racial marriage, you’re really not a libertarian, in his view
8. He dismissed as a problem the rapefugees now plaguing Sweden, Germany
9. He supports political correctness
