Donald Trump Then and What He Says Now

New York magazine’s Gabriel Sherman reported Thursday that Ivanka Trump, the presidential candidate’s daughter, had urged him to tone it down a notch. Get it? Nobody knows how much that is except them-Ivana and Marla… oh, and their lawyers-but all indications are, it was a shitload.

“One of the ways we stop them is by not funding them and not arming them”, he says.

What he said then: In February, Trump told Hugh Hewitt he would make “so much money” for the country that cuts to Social Security and Medicaid would be unnecessary.

How else could a quasi-religious faith in someone as obviously inept for political office as Donald Trump be leading the Republican polls by 10 points?

Haley tells a summer meeting of the Republican National Committee on Thursday that her state is still healing from the horror of June’s racially motivated massacre at an African-American church.

Mr Trump calls US leaders “stupid” three times when asked about immigration policy.

Haley says that people coming together in the wake of the shooting led to the removal of the Confederate battle flag from the grounds of the state capital in Columbia.

Nothing in Trump’s response addressed Wallace’s question about whether he has any proof to support his allegations about the Mexican government. We all had fun, didn’t we?

All of them wore snoozy single-breasted dark suits of navy, charcoal, or black.

So, see, my plan is to guarantee them that they would never, ever, have to do something as demeaning and humiliating as, say, shop at a Target store… or drive a Chevy… or lunch at Olive Garden…by matching-perhaps topping-the figure the worm gave them to keep their mouths shut. Also, as Sen. Marco Rubio correctly pointed out last night, unauthorized immigrants in the U.S. increasingly come not from Mexico, but from Central American countries.

“I’m going to strongly support him, because I like what he’s saying”, said Kooistra.

There are a million people a year who legally immigrate to the US, and people feel like we’re being taken advantage of. What right-wing people in this country would love is an open-border policy.

The Obama presidency has been remarkably proficient in staring down big challenges – universal health care, stabilizing the economy, killing Osama bin Laden – but every administration’s end represents a fresh beginning. It was quite possibly the fact that he was the only candidate who did not button his suit jacket for much of the time while he was standing on stage.


“I was raised paycheque to paycheque”, he says.
