    Presumptive nominee's policy meanderings promise to futher confound Republicans bamboozled by his ascent

    Donald Trump has reversed his stance on two key economic principles - saying he now supports a higher national minimum wage and would raise taxes on the rich rather than lowering them.

    Providing fresh evidence he is making up his policy priorities as he goes along, the Republican presidential candidate contradicted previous statements during an interview with NBC.

    Will Trump become the biggest flip-flopper since Mitt Romney?

    And will Republican loyalists and Teabaggers even care? Probably not. They'll vote for any Republican endorsed by Fox News. With only Trump remaining in the field, Fox will champion him in the months ahead. Fox sure as Hell ain't gonna be backing Hillary.

    Probably not, but Trump continues to write the Dem's attack ads for them.

    At least Romney's flip-flops were calculated. Trump is clearly just making up 'policy' on the hoof.

    So in the GOP there's the far right wing, the run of the mill right wing and now there's winging it.

    Or another phrase we use in the US for spontaneous, impromptu, and unplanned comments: "Off the cuff".

    Great way to run a campaign, and ultimately, the country. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Another example of the fundamental disconnect between a corporate CEO management model, versus a Presidential. Trump is talking about acting more "Presidential". But that's concerned with reining-in his outlandish public behavior for PR reasons. Not in his approach to leadership and problem solving. He's still the erratic loose cannon he's always been.

    Is Trump trying to Steal the Bern?

    A Republican taxing the rich? Or a play for the BernieOrBust idiot voters & so-called independents (the unwashed wishy-washy)?

    Here's Where Donald Trump Says He's a Lot Like Bernie Sanders

    ...He doubled down on this idea again in an interview with Fortune at the Trump Tower on Tuesday, while actually speaking favorably of Bernie Sanders stance on trade deals. “One thing we have in common is trade. We both know the US is getting ripped off by trade,” he said...

    ...But this compliment isn’t the only way in which Trump is congenial to the Vermont Senator. Much of what he says about trade and his plans to bring back jobs to American sounds very much like Sanders too...

    ...both Bernie Sanders and Trump agree that currency manipulation is another way that foreign governments are helping their workers at the expense of Americans.


    And now tax the rich too? A money grab? Seems a tad convenient. A vote grab perhaps?
