How Much Is Does Pat Toomey "Support" Donald Trump? (A Question For Pat Toomey)

This is an important question.  No room for waddling in any grey-zone of acceptable deniability.

Take a look at Trump's latest:
Donald Trump suggested Monday that President Obama is oblivious to issues of terrorism—and he seemed to suggest in the process that Obama might sympathize with the suspected gunman in the deadly Orlando nightclub shooting.

The unsubstantiated insinuations, in a series of interviews Monday morning, came from the Republican presidential candidate who once led calls for the release of the President’s birth certificate and has more than once indulged conspiracy theories about Obama’s faith and heritage. On Monday, just one day after a gunman killed 49 people and wounded 53 others in Orlando—the worst mass shooting in American history—Trump said on Fox News that he believes there’s “something else going on.”
Trevor Noah puts it a little more succinctly:
It was Donald Trump’s 70th birthday on Tuesday, and as Trevor Noah reported on The Daily Show, he celebrated by framing President Barack Obama as a terrorist sympathizer.

During an appearance on Fox & Friends this week, Trump described Obama as “not tough, not smart, or he’s got something else in mind,” reviving old conspiracy theories about the president’s faith.

“Are you shitting me?” Noah asked. “Donald Trump, the Republican nominee, is saying the president of the United States is a secret agent for ISIS. He’s accusing Obama of treason!

By the way, if we go back to that Time article, we see this:
But top military and Middle East experts, including vocal critics of the Obama Administration, condemned Trump’s suggestion as “ignorant,” “willfully ill-informed” and “ridiculous” in a half-dozen interviews with TIME. Several described it as a conspiracy theory.
Senator Toomey, I am a constituent of yours and I have a question for you:

PoliticsPA, while stating that you're "hesitant" to support Trump, nevertheless quoted you as saying, “I will be supporting the Republican nominee, whoever that is.”  Is that still the case?  Will you be supporting the bigoted, birther, conspiracy theorist who now heads your party?

I am a constituent and I want to know exactly your level of support for Donald Trump.
