The nation's largest tea party organization is endorsing Donald Trump as its choice for president, and will engage its nationwide grassroots base to get out the vote for the GOP presidential nominee.

"There is no choice at all between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, and we are endorsing Donald Trump for president," Tea Party Patriots CEO and co-founder Jenny Beth Martin told Fox News' "Fox & Friends" on Thursday.

"We look at the two choices and we know that Hillary Clinton's answer to any problem that she sees around the country is always more government, and she has a real problem with honesty and truthfulness."

Meanwhile, Trump is campaigning on the issues that have "propelled the tea party movement," said Martin.

"He wants to secure the border," said Martin. "He wants to balance the federal debt, balance the federal budget and he wants to repeal Obamacare. These are things that the tea party has stood for the last seven years and Donald Trump is going to help make them a reality."

Martin said as a 527 super PAC, her organization won't be coordinating with Trump's campaign directly, but will engage its base by getting out the vote, knocking on doors, and making phone calls.

"In Pennsylvania we have 57,000 people," said Martin. "In Florida, over 97,000 people. We're also focused on Ohio, where we have over 48,000 people. In North Carolina with 37,000 people. We're getting activists engaged.

"We want to make phone calls to have real voter-to-voter contact, make sure we close the sale. Everyone hears the ads. Now we want to need to engage the voters directly and ask for the vote. That's what we're doing."

Martin also discussed the fight to impeach Internal Revenue Services Commissioner John Koskinen, telling the program the official was "not truthful with Congress."

"Under his watch, evidence of what happened to us was destroyed, and he was appointed to restore confidence in the IRS," said Martin. "That has not happened and impeachment is a proper remedy to restore public trust."
