Trump is a liar. A hypocrite. Why vote for someone so blatantly willing to manipulate?
Here’s an (abbreviated) list of Trump’s lies:
1) Party identification
“In many cases, I probably identify more as Democrat,” Trump told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer in a 2004 interview. “It just seems that the economy does better under the Democrats than the Republicans…If you go back, I mean it just seems that the economy does better under the Democrats…We’ve had some pretty bad disaster under the Republicans.”
2) Liking the Tea Party
“The Republicans are captives of their right wing.” (He said this in 1999 before the Republicans moved even further to the right. It doesn’t take much logic or thinking to deduce his true sentiment towards right-wingers.)
“It’s very possible that I could be the first presidential candidate to run and make money on it” (Told to Fortune in 2000). Trump has no inclination to “make America great again” – he knows his ideas are bogus. He simply wants to manipulate his supporters to satisfy his own greed.
Furthermore, Trump has used spent $1.4 million of campaign funds on his own companies. These aren’t his own funds, they are from donors (see below). He takes money from people (though he lies and says he doesn’t) and pours it into his own companies, enriching himself. Trump has one goal: steal from you and give to himself.
Trump raised $3.9 million in the third quarter of 2015 alone. He only loaned himself $1.8 million. Two-thirds of his campaign funds come from non-Trump sources, to whom he will be beholden if ever in office.
5) Pat Buchanan
After a Buchanan interview Saturday morning, Trump sang him lavish praise. However, Trump once referred to Buchanan as a “neo-nazi.”
He says he isn’t a politicians, but he sure changes his tune when it’s politically expedient.
In other words, Trump is more cynical than most politicians.
