Conservative Commentator Erick Erickson, who once considered himself a Never-Trumper has now announced he will support Donald Trump in 2020.
Three years ago this week, I declared myself #NeverTrump in 2016. Today, I’m endorsing President Trump and Vice President Pence for re-election in 2020 and am glad to help them on the trail as needed during Campaign 2020. https://t.co/7Tan0AUqhO

I really enjoyed reading this article. Most never-Trumpers or former never-Trumpers try to give Trump backhanded compliments and claim they have to support Trump but wish they didn’t have to. Erick does not do this. He talks about Trump’s character but spends most of the time praising Trump’s actions as President.
His ending line is the one that was in my view the strongest:
I will vote for Donald Trump and Mike Pence. And, to be clear, it will not be just because of what the other side offers, but also because of what the Trump-Pence team has done. They’ve earned my vote.
