How Much Do We Really Know About Donald Trump?

Donald Trump has a record. He has prior statements, inconsistent statements, and recent statements that contract him on the campaign trail.

What I have found about the Trump supporters I know is that few of them know about Trump’s positions up until he entered the race. They have found Trump consistent and not a typical politician, but he is anything but. In fact, during the tea party surge in 2010, Trump was backing the Democrats. When the conservative movement rose up in 2014, Trump was backing the establishment. Only now, conveniently, is Trump claiming the mantle of an anti-establishment candidate.

These new videos are being turned into ads and they are going to be all over the early primary states. They are not the typical anti-Trump attacks. They’re just Donald Trump in his own words.
