And it is that attitude that may likely cost him the election. It isn't enough that Trump endorsed McCain and Romney in their last presidential bids.....a few hard words during election time and those hypocrytes help invite the Clintons' back into the White House. Trump has given more in his lifetime to the Republicans than the Democrats, just ask the Wiki. Does Trump have to agree with every conservative issue? Isn't he allowed to have a mind of his own? Instead of being applauded for his individuality and outspokeness, two things rare in politics today, many diehard Republicans distance themselves from him instead of embracing him as a potential ally. Did any of them consider the consequences of their actions if by some fluke he actually ends up as our next President? Trump has a history of remembering who his friends are and who they were not. Their actions disgrace the whole Republican Party because they are afraid for their own individual political futures and not the future of our great country. Who gives a fuck about where Trumps' views differ from most conservatives, why don't they have the balls to acknowledge those differences and concentrate on where their views coincide? They are a bunch of cowards with no backbone. The patriots in the Republican party are the ones that have the balls to support the RNCs' nominee.
And no one keeps all their campaign promises. Despite what Obama thinks with all his "executive orders" a president is not a king, he is part of a process, a link in a chain. Congress makes the laws and passes the laws the President only ratifies them or he can attempt to veto them. What we actually "need" in the Whitehouse is someone who is willing to work with both parties in Congress and who is willing to compromise with them both in order to get something positive accomplished. Something we have no chance of under Clinton.
The thing with Trump its not necessarily the fact he has views that conservatives detest. Its the fact that he is pulling a Mitt Romney. Meaning he spent most of his time as a liberal and only started espousing conservative viewpoints because he wants to run for president. Donald Trump donated to liberal democrats and liberal republicans,espoused liberal views and praised the job those liberal democrats and liberal republicans did and only when he decided to run for president did he started espousing conservative view points. He was on Fox news and MSNBC saying he would illegals stay in the country. He said he agreed with "dreamers". He said he supported "assault weapon" bans and longer waiting periods even though he claims to support the 2nd amendment. He claims to be pro-life even though he supports his late term abortion supporting sister as a supreme court nominee supports funding for planned parenthood, which are things no one who is actually pro-life would support. Despite criticizing companies for outsourcing his clothing line is made outside the US. How do you trust someone like that? If the media and pro-amnesty politicians didn't demonize Donald Trump over his comments about illegals and tried to make them about all Mexicans then Donald Trump wouldn't have been perceived as this tough opponent to illegal immigration. Its because of this perceived tough stance against illegal immigration why Trump has any support.
I support a wall on the border and cracking down on illegal immigration and I oppose outsourcing. I support some of the things Donald Trump is saying. But I trust Donald Trump as far as I can throw him. If I didn't have the internet where I can look up a candidate's past actions and views and I was like all these other schmucks out there who don't know any better I would probably be a die hard Donald Trump supporter.
