WASHINGTON, May 6 (Reuters) - Bob Dole, the U.S. Republican presidential nominee in 1996, endorsed Donald Trump on Friday and said the real estate billionaire is the party's best chance to win back the White House in the Nov. 8 election, the Trump campaign said.

"We must unite as a party to defeat Hillary Clinton," a campaign statement quoted Dole as saying, referring to the Democratic presidential front-runner. "Donald Trump is our party's presumptive nominee and our best chance at taking back the White House this November."

Editor's note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims -- 1.6 billion members of an entire religion -- from entering the U.S.
