Sean Hannity tells Donald Trump: 'I'll be voting for Donald Trump'

Fox News host Sean Hannity told Donald Trump during a Tuesday interview with the presumptive Republican presidential nominee that he’d be voting for the real-estate mogul in the November election.

Hannity has been known throughout the election cycle for generally favourable coverage of Trump.

“I’m an opinion show,” Hannity noted during a discussion of possible Trump running mates. “And I don’t hold back that I’ll be voting for Donald Trump in November.”

Hannity had been pressing Trump about where he is in the process of picking a running mate and potential members of a Trump cabinet.

Trump said he’s “in the process” of choosing these people, but declined to name who he has in mind.

“You’re not giving me anything here! I am not the corrupt press. I’m actually the conservative here,” Hannity said.

“That’s true, by the way,” Trump responded. After Hannity said he’d be voting for him, Trump said, “Thank you.”

Before the interview, Trump had mentioned Hannity’s TV ratings on Twitter:
