Williams defended the strength of Trump’s message to independent and swing voters across America who had been ignored by the established political order.
The December 2015 interview was a turning point in Prof. Williams ultimate decision to support Donald Trump for the presidency.
In January and February 2016, Williams maxed out his allowable FEC contribution limits to the Trump campaign.
Looking for other ways to support Donald Trump's campaign, Williams, who lives in Bethesda Maryland, regularly traveled across the Potomac to do grass-roots work in the Virginia primary. Williams personally plastered liberal Arlington Virginia with Trump yard signs. (A former resident of Arlington, Virginia, Williams had run for the Virginia state legislature as the GOP nominee in fall 2001).
In mid-March, Williams then sought to support Mr. Trump by becoming his competitor as a write-in candidate in several late-primary states (in order to establish "competitor candidate" legal standing to challenge Ted Cruz's ballot eligibility).
The December 2015 interview also offered insights from Gwenda Blair, author of “The Trumps: Three Generations of Builders and a Presidential Candidate.” Then, Ed Kilgore of New York Magazine presented his views of Trump.
And joining for “Evidence Based Politics,” Victor Williams directly rebutted the argument of Ed Gilgore and asserted that Donald Trump had two clear paths to the presidency — with the support of swing supporters.
