Economist and conservative thinker Thomas Sowell has endorsed Texas Sen. Ted Cruz for president, saying his Republican rival Donald Trump would lead the party — and the country — to “disaster.”
In an op-ed Tuesday for Real Clear Politics, Mr. Sowell, 85, said the death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia “can be catastrophic in its consequences, depending on who is chosen to be his successor.”
He went on to say that “the frivolous rhetoric and childish antics in the televised political ‘debates’ are painful to watch. If ever there was a time to choose a president with depth, rather than glitter or glibness, this is it.”
“If, by some miracle, Trump became president, what kind of president would he be?” he asked. “Do we need another self-centered know-it-all in the White House to replace the one we have now?”
