Trump begins to walk back, well, everything?

It starts with the minimum wage. How long before Donald Trump walks back everything he ever claimed to stand for that is remotely Republican or conservative?

Just a month ago Trump said everything is negotiable. He would not deny reports that he told The New York Times editorial board in an off-the-record meeting that he would not build a wall on the Mexican border.

Trump has already flip-flopped like a flounder out of water, image what he will do now.

By the time he gets to the convention, he’ll be sounding like Bernie Sanders.

After Ted Cruz called Trump a “pathological liar,” “utterly amoral,” “a narcissist at a level I don’t think this country’s ever seen” and “a serial philanderer,” do you think he will endorse him?

    Trump changing his mind on everything — well, at least he’ll come out and say what he thinks today, even tho tomorrow it may be different. The one advantage is that he doesn’t seem to have a filter between his brain and his mouth, so whatever he thinks, that’s what we hear.

    Hillary, tho… she’s lied so much, I have to assume everything she says is a lie and that we’ll never hear anything true from her mouth.

    I don’t fault a politician for changing their position … heck, Reagan changed his mind on basics too. I do fault them for lying about or hiding what they really think.

    I think it is a given that Trump will revert to his core NY values. The better question is when or if the Tumpbots will acknowledge they were played.

    Whatever Trump is he isn’t Obama nor Hillary Clinton, he’s a businessman, not a former community organizer like Obama nor Hillary Clinton that rode her husband’s coattails to political power. He’s not a novice to political maneuvering, he’s bought Democrats and Republicans alike, he knows who is for sale even if he isn’t. He won’t appoint a Sec. of State in it to enrich themself, he won’t appoint an AG to divide the races, he won’t fire military officers en masse to steer military objectives. He may even find a way to handle health care that doesn’t break working people. He doesn’t have to build a wall to keep out people from south of the border, he can just apply the laws already on the books, that includes requiring Moslem immigrants to apply and wait their turn as individuals, not planeloads without question. Picturing him as a brash New Yorker endears him to many people, most of us like a person that tells it like it is, leave the BS and fantasy to the likes of Clinton and Obama.

  4. Trump is rudderless.

    You see, Vern Clayson is what the base of the Republican Party is all about — not people like Barbara and Thomas Mitchell.

    By the way: I take strong exception to Trump being called the embodiment of “New York values” — whatever that means.

    Trump today on his own tax plan:
    ““I am not necessarily a huge fan of that.” http://tinyurl.com/gwcsujk

    His own plan.

  7. Heaven help us all…it’s been sackcloth and ashes since Tuesday. As Earl Pitts would say…Wake Up Amoerica”…(and be careful what you wish for)!

    There is an option….there really is.

  9. Wyatt Cox says:

    …and given that Mr Mitchell is a strong supporter of Free Trade, just like every other Neocon…

  10. nyp says:

    He isn’t a neoconservative.

  11. Barbara says:

    NYP – I said Trump would revert to his core NY Values. These are his words, not mine:

  12. Barbara says:

    As Trump uses the term above, he is referring to liberal social values such as gays serving in the military and partial birth abortion being legal. NY Values as he uses the term have nothing to do with brashness or telling it like it is. This was another spin that the media ran with against Cruz.

  13. Steve says:

    So, even if Trump does intend to try and take the election in November, what we would get is Hillary in a Trump suit?
    And a whole bunch more disheartened voters?

    There IS an option. Even if you can’t vote for something, then vote against the current flotsam of offerings being floated by the big boys. Vote anyone other than Dem or Rep, odds are you will be right and certainly in favor of you feeling better about your vote after it’s all said and done.

  14. As a pro-life, constitutional conservative…that “option,” doesn’t really do much for me…especially when you consider that the “option” received less than 1% of the popular vote when the “option” ran for President in 2012. I’d rather see the scorched earth take down of Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and the progressive leftist socialist big government Democrat party.

  15. Steve says:

    “U.S. employment gains hit seven-month low, labor force shrinks”
    “Manufacturing added 4,000 jobs last month after shedding 29,000 in March, the biggest loss for the sector since December 2009.”
    http://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-economy-idUSKCN0XX0A3

    I blame that corporate welfare program Obamacare!

  16. nyp says:

    the economy added 160,000 jobs in April, extending the longest period of private-sector job growth ever recorded. Wages increased. Unemployment is down at 5%.

    If you wish to attribute this to ObamaCare, be my guest.

  17. Steve says:

    160,000 is way below the expectations and a very significant slide that is effecting FED rate decisions…..

    So YES! I blame the corporate welfare program known as Obamacare!

  18. Steve says:

    Mostly because it bugs you, Nyp.
