For as firm a stance as Donald Trump has taken on current issues, he’s just as likely to have held completely opposite opinions in years past. A political chameleon of sorts, Trump has managed to change party affiliations five times. He first registered as a Republican before changing to Democrat and then joined the Reform Party and later became an Independent — only to return to the Republican Party.
While Trump blusters about Obamacare, he is for universal health care for all citizens. He has flip-flopped on abortion, first being very pro-choice and then switching to pro-life. He hates the idea of guns but has a concealed carry permit and owns two pistols.
While he comes off as strong on the border and illegal immigration, he supports a pathway to citizenship. He has contributed to liberal candidates many times, including his would-be opponent, Hillary Clinton. Trump has even said both President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton were doing a great job. Now that he’s running for president, his opinion of their performance has changed.
What has caused Donald Trump to change his opinion so dramatically and so often? What are the pivot points that inspired these changes? Listen to Glenn’s rundown on Trump’s history and then you decide if these changes are genuine or not.
