Trump Describes his ‘New York Values’ in his Own Words [VIDEO]

Real estate mogul and GOP presidential candidate frontrunner Donald Trump went on the attack at the GOP debate last night calling what fellow presidential candidate, Texas Senator Ted Cruz, said about “New York Values” insulting. Cruz has been lambasted by Trump and the liberal media, as well as some on FOX News,  for saying that Trump embodies New York values. Trump used the horrific terrorist attack at the hands of Muslim terrorists that occurred on 9/11 in 2001 to attack Cruz’s statement.

The Donald attempted to spin Cruz’s words as it somehow being an insult against 9/11 first responders and the way the city came together after that terrible day. What Trump failed to admit, however, is that Cruz was simply quoting The Donald himself.

At the debate, when Cruz was given a chance to explain what he meant by “New York values,” he said that  “everyone understands that the values in New York City are socially liberal or pro-abortion or pro- gay-marriage, focus around money and the media.”

During an interview with Tim Russert on Meet the Press in 1999, Donald Trump echoed those words of explanation from Ted Cruz, a clear indication that Cruz was using Donald’s own words to describe him as having New York values, and how they are different than the values in other parts of the country.

In regards to homosexual marriage and homosexuals serving in the military, Trump had this to say.

RUSSERT: Do you think gays should be allowed to be married?

TRUMP: It’s something I haven’t given lots of thought to. I live in New York City, there is a tremendous movement on to have and allow gay marriage. It’s just something that is too premature for me to comment on.

RUSSERT: How about gays serving in the military?

TRUMP: It would not disturb me. I mean, hey, I lived in New York City and Manhattan all my life, so my views are a little bit different than if I lived in Iowa, perhaps…

When the two switched topics to abortion, Trump’s views on abortion were remarkable radically far left with Trump even expressing support of partial birth abortion and being against eliminating abortion in the third trimester. Trump’s answer fits right in line with his friend Hillary and her supporters at Planned Butcherood.

RUSSERT: Partial birth abortion. Eliminating of abortion in the third trimester. Big issue in Washington. Would President Trump ban partial birth abortion?

TRUMP: Well, look, I’m very pro-choice…and again, it may be a little bit of a New York background, because there is some different attitude in different parts of the country, and you know, I was raised in New York, and grew up and work and everything else in New York City.
RUSSERT: But you would not ban it.

TRUMP: No…I am pro-choice in every respect as far as it goes, but I just hate it.

Sounds exactly like the “New York values” that Ted Cruz spoke about in describing Trump in his own words at the GOP debate.

Will the media continue to sweep this under the rug in their attempt to destroy Ted Cruz?
