The Big Problem With Trump

The big problem with Trump is you can’t trust him.  I seriously doubt he will build that wall, even if he had the power to do so.  From his own book, The Art of the Deal, one of his tactics is to “Play to people’s fantasies”.  I think he does that all the time with his campaign promises.

He knows the conservative base wants a wall; doesn’t want more Muslim immigrants from Syria and elsewhere, and resents the loss of jobs to China and elsewhere.  So, voilà, he is going to build a wall, ban Muslim immigration, and bring back millions of jobs from China.  He is playing to our fantasies, imo, or as some might call it, lying to us.

And beyond that people should realize he doesn’t have the power to do any of those things himself, unless he is going to use his pen and phone, which of course would further undermine the Constitution and move us closer to a dictatorship.

 

I heard something else interesting today.  Some pundits expect Trump to “run to Hillary’s left” in the general election to pick up disaffected Sanders voters.  That’s something to look forward to isn’t it?  After it’s too late to deny him the nomination, he will change stripes even more so that he has already and go after supporters of the socialist Bernie Sanders!

He will be playing to their socialist fantasies and forget all about conservatives!  The question we should all be asking ourselves is where does he REALLY stand on the issues?  Does he have ANY firm convictions or principles?  Imo, it’s impossible to know, so conservatives can’t vote for someone like that.  Ted Cruz is the only true conservative in the race.
