Please don’t misunderstand this article. I’m not trying to persuade anyone one way or the other and I’m not trying to insult Donald Trump. I have no idea who I am voting for other than I will not vote for a RINO. I need people to tell me where I’m going wrong in this following summary of Trump. He’s the leading candidate and the issues must be discussed honestly. Tell me why I need to vote for Trump or not.
Donald Trump has a long history as a Democrat, ripping into the Bush administration, praising and donating to the Clintons, supporting universal healthcare without clearly explaining what he will do, and he will raise taxes on the wealthy. Trump will allow the government to keep the massive amounts of land and not return it to the states to be sold off as he recently told Peter’s Hunting in an interview.
On the other hand, he says he is now a conservative and has evolved on the issues. He will repeal and replace Obamacare with universal healthcare, he will abolish the federal government’s role in funding Common Core, he will adopt a foreign policy that is similar to Obama’s but will annihilate ISIS, he will build a wall and institute touchback amnesty. He might shut down immigration of Muslims until we know “what the H… we’re doing.”
He says he will cut the Defense Department, the Department of Education, and the entire EPA. He will defund Planned Parenthood. Inversions will be history, used the increasing debt ceiling as a bargaining chip, will make the economy dynamic. Trump supports the police and tough sentencing. While acknowledging some climate change could be manmade, he does not support Cap and Trade.
He is very strong on the Second Amendment and would get rid of the gun free zones. If legal, he would get rid of them in schools – if he can he will override the states. Constitutionally, he can’t.
He believes in a strong family.
Watch him speak about his views up until 2007.
He also said he will make better deals with countries like Iran though he has not said he will cancel the current deal and he will make better trade deals. Details are not clear. Trump has made it clear he will make deals with the Democrats and make America great again. He can work with Pelosi, Reid, Schumer and whoever. One of the reasons conservatives are angry with the establishment is they make deals with the leftists and aren’t showing they stand up for limited government, liberty, and the constitution. He said he will negotiate until he makes America great again.
His business acumen is unquestionable though he has made use of laws such as bankruptcy and Eminent Domain.
On another positive note, he is not PC – praise God. However, he’s also lowered the level of political discourse. A woman at one of his events called Cruz a “pussy”. He cutely remarked that she must never say that while repeating it with a wink and a nod.
All in all, Trump has switched parties multiple times and has been a member of the Republican Party, the Independence Party, the Democratic Party, was a candidate with the Reform Party, and now back to the Republican Party.
According to voting records from the state of New York, Trump failed to vote in the last two presidential primaries.
Newsmax reported the following which I have verified through multiple sources.
From 1989-2011 Trump donated $581,350 to 23 different Democratic candidates in state and federal races, including Ted Kennedy and Harry Reid. In 2010 Trump donated $50,000 to Chicago’s Democrat Mayor Rahm Emanuel, a close aide of President Obama.
Trump’s donations to GOP candidates include many liberal Republicans such as former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist and U.S. Sen. Arlen Spector.
After missing the primary election in 2012, Trump tweeted after the general election, “I always vote for the winners. Congratulations to My Friend @BarackObama.” He did not, however, vote in that election.
On September 19, 2015, a conservative blogger broke the news that Trump deleted the tweet about voting for Barack Obama, but that he had captured an earlier screen shot of the tweet.
Trump will put the RINOS in their place and hopefully the Democrats. What do you think? I need opinions.
