Donald Trump Part IV: The Recent Years

In a short amount of time, Donald Trump has tapped into the anger created by an out-of-control federal government that no longer listens to the people. His solutions to the country’s many problems make great sound bites — but what’s the substance beneath?

In this four-part series, Glenn looks at the man behind the message, including Trump’s early years as a Manhattan developer, his grandiose claims about business dealings and successes and, perhaps most telling, the language he uses when talking about women. Is Trump the kind of man needed to restore America to her founding principles — or is he just adding another notch to his belt and title to his resume? Is he a winner who wins all the time or is he a showman putting on the greatest show of his life?

Part IV: The Recent Years

On the campaign trail this election cycle, Donald Trump has been touting the importance of leadership and having the right people around you. When someone lacks any type of record in politics and government, the best place to vet their leadership credentials can often be who and what they publicly support. In 2009, Trump stated President Obama was doing a great job and gave him a “solid B+” for his first hundred days as well as saying he would hire him. Not only did he support Obama, but he also agreed with his appointments – most notably the projected Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton.

In 2010, Wolf Blitzer asked if Obama has “saved” us as a country and Donald noted that he indeed had. It was a totally different story in 2011 however, as Trump said that Obama had surpassed Jimmy Carter as the worst president in history. What changed Trump’s tune so drastically? Had Obama crossed him personally or in some other way? Or was it just that Mr. Trump was gearing up for a presidential bid of his own?

Whatever caused the change, Donald switched parties and became a Republican despite having been quoted as saying “the economy seems to do better under Democrats” and Mrs. Clinton, saying “he’s basically a Democrat.” Mr. Trump consistently touts his relationships with the Democrats and how he is best equipped to work with them, but is that just because he is still ideologically aligned with them or because of his “negotiating genius?”

That will be for the American people to judge.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
