Trump Veers Left. Of Course He Does

I don’t know how anyone following this race could possibly be surprised by today’s hard-left turn by Donald Trump. There’s no way Trump has a Dumb & Dumber of a chance of beating Hillary Clinton in the general election unless he out-Hillarys her.

On ABC News’ “This Week,” Trump said his tax plan isn’t going to be like what he campaigned on.

“On my plan they’re going down. But by the time it’s negotiated, they’ll go up,” Trump said. “Look, when I’m negotiating with the Democrats, I’m putting in a plan. I’m putting in my optimum plan. It’s going to be negotiated, George. It’s not going to stay there. They’re not going to say, ‘There’s your plan, let’s approve it.’ They’re going to say, ‘Let’s see what we can do.'”

Of course. Everything is negotiable. The wall, Iran, ISIS immigration, the minimum wage, all of it. Because Trump said “I’m allowed to change.”

“Sure, it’s a change. I’m allowed to change. You need flexibility, George, whether it’s a tax plan, where you’re going — where you know you’re going to negotiate. But we’re going to come up with something. But my real minimum wage is going to be — I’m going to bring companies back into this country, and they’re going to make a lot more than the $15 even,” Trump said.

On the GOP, Trump is A-OK making America Blue Again, or at least making the GOP more like the Democrats.

“I think it would be better if it were unified, I think it would be — there would be something good about it. But I don’t think it actually has to be unified in the traditional sense,” Trump said.

You know, the traditional sense where Republican states stay red.

But we knew this all along, because Trump can make himself anything he wants. Trump’s supporters in the GOP are going to gnaw their arms off by November to get away from this man.
