Donald Trump on the Issues: My Views on His Positions

RL: “Trump has too many other bad things about him”

Tony Swagger: Can you list some of them? The way i see it, he seems to the least of evil we have to put up with. Imagine a country ruled by Cruz, Rubio or Hillary. Sanders credibility is dubious as well given his Jewish background. Also from a socialist POV, Trump doesn’t seem so evil as the MSM and Jew lobby make out to be and Blacks don’t have to be so wild given that Trump hasn’t said so many mean things about them unlike other white advocates. I see no reason why anyone opposes Trump. They all worship Israel and are gonna make us meddle in some unwanted wars in the middle east. Trump seems like a saint amongst them.

Trump says he is a conservative Republican. Ok, that’s a dealbreaker right there.

The Trump campaign’s tax plan calls for reducing the corporate tax rate to 15% concurrent with the elimination of various loopholes and deductions. No to lowering the corporate tax rate.

Trump identifies as a “free trader.” Bad.

Trump opposes increasing the U.S. minimum wage, saying that doing so would hurt America’s economic competitiveness. Speaking at the Republican debate on November 10, Trump said, “We are a country that is being beaten on every front—economically, militarily. Taxes too high, wages too high, we’re not going to be able to compete against the world … People have to go out, they have to work really hard, and they have to get into that upper stratum.” Wages are too high? WTH.

Trump has stated he wants to build a wall on the U.S. border with Mexico to prevent illegal immigrants from entering into the country. I oppose building a moronic wall on the border with Mexico, but I am ok with a vehicle barrier.

Trump has described the evolution of his position on abortion; although he formerly took several pro-choice positions, he now describes himself as pro-life and would ban late-term abortions except in cases of rape, incest, or health. He is in favor of cutting federal funding for Planned Parenthood. Dealbreaker.

Trump has stated his support for school choice and local control for primary and secondary schools. On school choice he’s commented, “Our public schools are capable of providing a more competitive product than they do today. Look at some of the high school tests from earlier in this century, and you’ll wonder if they weren’t college-level tests. And we’ve got to bring on the competition — open the schoolhouse doors and let parents choose the best school for their children. Education reformers call this school choice, charter schools, vouchers, even opportunity scholarships. I call it competition — the American way.” No on “school choice” and “vouchers.” Also he lied about tests in 1900.

He has stated he opposes the Common Core State Standards Initiative for primary and secondary schools, and has called Common Core “a disaster” that must be ended. There is nothing wrong with Common Core, and the movement to get rid of it is a nutcase rightwing obsession.

Trump has praised prominent national evangelical leaders, including Tony Perkins and Ralph Reed. Ralph Reed? Dealbreaker?

Trump supports the Second Amendment, is opposed to gun control in general, and has a New York concealed carry permit. Bad.

He once supported a ban on assault weapons and longer waiting periods for gun purchases but has since reversed his position. Stupid.

He also supports national right to concealed carry and allow gun permits to be applicable to all 50 states much like a driver’s license. I see that Trump is an insane person. Dealbreaker?

After the 2015 San Bernardino shooting, Trump declared that the victims “could’ve protected themselves if they had guns.” A crazy person talks like this.

Trump favors replacing the Affordable Care Act (commonly referred to as “Obamacare”) with a free-market plan and competition to lower costs. Dealbreaker.

He has previously expressed support for allowing people to privately invest their social security dollars. Bad idea.

Trump believes that childhood vaccinations are related to autism, a hypothesis which has been repeatedly debunked. Idiot.

Trump has stated that he supports traditional marriage. Against gay marriage. Boo!

Trump contends that global warming is “a total hoax”, and has joked that “the concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make US manufacturing non-competitive.” Dealbreaker.

Trump criticized President Obama’s description of climate change as “the greatest threat to future generations” as being “naive” and “one of the dumbest statements I’ve ever heard.” Dealbreaker!

Trump opposes cap and trade. Bad, bad, bad.

Trump has stated his intention to provide presidential leadership with strong diplomacy to restore “respect” for the United States around the world and he supports a robust national defense. Bad. Wants to increase defense spending?!

Trump said in a December 2015 rally, “We have to see Bill Gates and a lot of different people that really understand what’s happening. We have to talk to them about, maybe in certain areas, closing that internet up in some ways. Somebody will say, ‘Oh freedom of speech, freedom of speech.’ These are foolish people.” He wants to shut down the Internet?! WTH.

Donald Trump said that the internet should be shut off to countries that have a majority of their territory controlled by terrorist organizations. Name some countries have a majority of their territory controlled by terrorists first. And assuming you can find one place, why should Libyans or whoever have their Net shut off? And how does one go about “turning off the Internet” to any country on Earth anyway? Ridiculous.

In his announcement speech, Trump said that the U.S. is getting weaker as a country and that its nuclear arsenal is old and does not work. Idiot, and a lie.

Trump has stated that he would re-instate waterboarding as an interrogation technique, and “a hell of a lot worse than waterboarding.” No!

“The other thing with the terrorists is you have to take out their families, when you get these terrorists, you have to take out their families. No, no! Dealbreaker.

Trump has said that he would “bomb the hell” out of Iraqi oil fields controlled by ISIS. Terrible idea!

In an interview, Trump stated “We’re going to have to do what Israel was doing for a period of time. ‘Take out’ means you have to wipe out their homes where they came from.” Trump’s model for dealing with terrorism is Israel! Israel!

Trump reiterated his statements about ISIS from November 12, 2015, when he stated he would “bomb the shit out of ’em” and said “I’d blow up the [oil] pipes, I’d blow up the refineries, and you know what, you’ll get Exxon to come in there in two months…and I’d take the oil.” Catastrophic. Dealbreaker X10.

Trump called the newly announced nuclear deal with Iran “terrible”, saying that the president negotiated the agreement “from desperation”. Idiot.

“First of all, we’re giving them billions of dollars in this deal, which we shouldn’t have given them. We should have kept the money”. Lie. We gave them back their own money that was frozen (stolen) by us.

“There’s something in the Iran deal that people I don’t think really understand or know about, and nobody’s able to explain it, that if somebody attacks Iran, we have to come to their defense”, he said. “So if Israel attacks Iran, according to that deal, I believe the way it reads […] that we have to fight with Iran against Israel.” Supports Israeli war on Iran? No!

When questioned on his “new deal with Iran” Trump responded that “Iran is doing nuclear. They’re going nuclear.” Lie! Which Jewish newspaper told him that one?

He would “put on the sanctions on Iran big league. I’d double and triple up the sanctions and make a deal from strength.” Bad.

According to Trump, nuclear weapons, not global warming, is America’s biggest problem. Just wrong.

In 2015 when asked how he would deal with Iraq’s condemnation of strikes on their oil fields, Trump replied that Iraq is a corrupt country that is not deserving of his respect. Catastrophic.

Speaking to the Yalta European Strategy conference in September 2015, Trump criticized Germany and other European countries for not doing enough to support Ukraine in its conflict with Russia and he claimed Ukrainians are “not being treated right.” Idiot, supports Nazis and also contradicted himself.

    yeah this is on my mind a lot lately

    Trump has stated he wants to build a wall on the U.S. border with Mexico to prevent illegal immigrants from entering into the country.

    Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall. 😆

    He once supported a ban on assault weapons and longer waiting periods for gun purchases but has since reversed his position.

    There should at least be a screening for mental defectives. Is he against that. I’m assuming longer waiting periods would be for checking, which is a good idea considering the crazy school shooters out there.

    Trump reiterated his statements about ISIS from November 12, 2015, when he stated he would “bomb the shit out of ’em” and said “I’d blow up the [oil] pipes, I’d blow up the refineries, and you know what, you’ll get Exxon to come in there in two months…and I’d take the oil.”

    He’s the Anti-Christ Eeek…. This may really be the end.

    Speaking to the Yalta European Strategy conference in September 2015, Trump criticized Germany and other European countries for not doing enough to support Ukraine in its conflict with Russia and he claimed Ukrainians are “not being treated right.”

    Could set the stage for another arms race with Russia and war. Again, he’s the Anti-Christ.

    To sum it up, Trump is a mental defective acid using Facebook redneck. Do we really want someone with balls like that running our nation and the world?

    • Jason Y

      Note: Class clowns, redneck facebook posters, and potheads are at school to laugh at. We never date them though, nor elect them to high office. lol

    I doubt he believes a word he says, it’s sheerly to capture attention. He employs illegal aliens to work in his casinos and resorts and privately admitted that he has no plans to build a wall. He was among the first to open his country clubs up to non whites as well, his wives are all foreigners (I don’t know why he is so appealing to the nativist sect.)

    If we put a ban on assault rifles, there are still hundreds of thousands in circulation we’d basically be handing it over to the black market. I can for see massive civil unrest if we ever attempted to enforce it.

    “Trump believes that childhood vaccinations are related to autism, a hypothesis which has been repeatedly debunked. Idiot.”

    Yeah, who the hell sponsors these “studies” anyway. I would have thought you of all people would be wise to this.

    • Hasdrubal

      I’m still not convinced that the entire Trump campaign isn’t some sort of performance art troll job.

      • Gay State Girl

        Exactly, he’s an entertainer and he’s making a mockery of the whole process.

        • Exactly, he’s an entertainer and he’s making a mockery of the whole process.

          The process was already a sick joke worthy of mockery to begin with; Trump is simply laying bare the dysfunctional state of American society – its politics in particular.

          If it weren’t for the fact that most other politicians are venal puppets of the donor class – whether it’s Killary, Jeb “please clap” Bush, or Marco Roboto – then Trump wouldn’t be a factor.

          The surprising relevance or Donald Trump, as well as Bernie Sanders, says more about Americans’ rancorous feelings and economic frustrations than any of their respective campaigns.

        • Jason Y

          People with strong exciting personalities always win elections from war heroes back in the 19th century to Kennedy and Reagan in the 20th century.

          I mean, how well did Dukakis or Dole do? Unless Hillary can beef up her charasima, and she does have a lot, then it’s a sure thing Trump will win. Has there ever been a case when the most charasmatic man didn’t win?

        • Gay State Girl

          I loved to see him rip apart Jeb Bush.

          Jeb: My dad is the greatest man to me. My mom is the strongest alive.

          Trump: She’s the one who should be running for President.

          Priceless.

        • Gay State Girl

          You write so well.

          Are you still supporting Bernie or has he worn you out pandering to Al Sharpton?

        • @ GSG

          Why thank you! Even though I’ve had some bad writer’s block lately, Dota and I intend to get our blog running again soon.

          Regarding Sanders, I still support him. I understand that for most other people in the alt right, they support Trump because his campaign is basically an expression of white American rage – a pseudo-white nationalism, if you will.

          However, having gotten white nationalist anger out of my system years ago, Trump just doesn’t appeal to me the way he does to other people in the alt right. I won’t lie, I do have a bit of a soft spot for him, if only because he’s causing various elites to shit their pants; but that doesn’t mean I think he should be president.

          I may be a white man, but I’m also a young man, a millennial. Bernie Sanders is the only candidate who truly embodies economic populism, and who could do at least something to help remedy the economic plight of my generation.

          The fact that so many people deem him a “radical” socialist says more about the US than Sanders. In Europe, Sanders would simply be a moderate social Democrat.

      Judging by Facebook posts, probably American Civil War II.

  4. Hasdrubal

    You missed one
    When asked to what type of Supreme Court Justice he would nominate he gave Scalia as an example of the type of Justice he would nominate.

  5. Jason Y

    Of course, Trump might mellow out after elected. For instance, a lot of people were scared of Reagan during his first and 2nd election, but he never went as crazy as people thought (Goldwater crazy etc..) and even things warmed up with the Soviet Union by 1987,

  6. tulio

    Best deconstruction of Trump I’ve read so far: http://www.theblaze.com/contributions/dear-trump-fan-so-you-want-someone-to-tell-it-like-it-is-ok-here-you-go/

    Impressive that it was written by a right-winger.

    • Jason Y

      Trump is all too human, but can repress enough of his “human” side to avoid being a total jackass in office? Oh, yeah, attacking prisoner of war would seem to be an unforgiveable offense, especially with Republicans. What kind of a_hole would attack John McCain’s true story of torture etc.. ?

      • Hasdrubal

        Not really, Junkie Whore Limbaugh went after McCain’s mentally stability, saying his POW experience made him too unstable to be President during the 2000 GOP primary. It didn’t seem to hurt Junkie Whore Limbaugh among republicans.

        • Jason Y

          It is true veterans can whine about thier past too much. Saying so doesn’t disrespect them. I mean, what about tough guys who were tortured etc.. and they don’t bring up thier past? That seems more manly.

          However, any criticism of vets coming from spoiled rich kid Trump comes across as pretty wussy. Also, Trump wimped out of Nam as did other rich kids, using some lame excuse.

        • Hasdrubal

          I wasn’t defending what Limbaugh said and I would argue the bigger problem with Vets is that they don’t want to talk about what happened rather than the reverse. “Suck it up and drive on” is one of the more popular responses in the military to complaints. My point was that attacking John McCain’s war record isn’t the negative among republicans so long as the attacker is more popular than McCain with republicans.
          Back in 2004 republican rank and file openly mocked John Kerry’s purple hearts.

        • Jason Y

          Better if politicians view “war record”, unless it was proven cowardice or something, as a “no go area”.

        • Hasdrubal

          I think it’s open to criticism, but you better damn well know what your talking about. For example I criticize McCain because I think he has an overly simplistic fly boys view of war. He over emphasis the effect of air power, which I largely view as artillery by other means, and undervalues the difficulty of being on the ground and sleeping with the bugs in the dirt.

      • Stary Wylk

        Are you talking about McCain who can’t fly a plane? A little research exposes how he got himself shot down.
