Donald Trump has back pedaled on his flagship pledge to expel 11 000 000 illegal immigrants. This tough talk got him publicity during the Republican primaries. He stood out from the crowd because of his uncompromising stand. This policy was unreasonable, extreme, unfair, unkind and unworkable. Most Republican hopefuls did not go as far as him.
The Donald has welched on this earlier election pledge. Why should he be trusted now? He has told so many untruths.
Trump has ruined his brand as a plain speaking and very firm candidate. This will put off some of his supporters. Admittedly some of them are so bigotted that no matter how many fibs he tells or how many vows he breaks they will always back him.
Donald Trump plainly realises that his demagoguery has put off many African-Americans and Hispanics. They were never very attracted to him anyway. Not enough whites will vote for him. He has to win over more minorities. He polls very poorly with them. His change of course has signalled that even he recognises he is losing. This insincere last minute change of heart will not fool anyone. No one knows when there will be another volte-face.
Trump is sunk already I am glad to say. It would take a series of major blunders from Hillary to hand it to Trump. If Trump cleaned up his act now it would be too late. He cannot take back most of what he has said. He would have to spend the rest of the campaign recanting his earlier positions and apologising profusely and abjectly.
Contrast is malicious and foul mouthed style with that of Romney. Romney was restrained and courteous. Look at John McCain. He was more moderate and always gentlemanly. Trump is a coward and a brute.
Sarah Palin understands the ignoramus vote. She has courted it for years. She correctly identified Trump’s death bed conversion as a tactical error. He was going to lose anyway but this way he will lose by even more. Now Trump says he will only deport illegals who are criminals. That happens anyway! It is a massive climbdown. That means the great majority of illegal immigrants will be allowed to stay under him.
I look forward to his next humiliating and unreliable U turn by this vicious, avaricious, deceitful, vain, racist moron.
