The Club for Growth, a leading free-enterprise advocacy group, is no fan of Donald Trump’s anti-free market policies like socialized medicine and eminent domain for personal gain.
The ad contends that there is “nothing conservative” about Donald Trump:
“There’s nothing conservative about proposing the largest tax hike in history. There’s nothing conservative about supporting socialized single-payer health care. There’s nothing conservative about abusing eminent domain for personal gain.
“There’s nothing conservative about four bankruptcies. There’s nothing conservative about giving money to the Clintons. There’s nothing conservative about Donald Trump.”
In September, Club for Growth President David McIntosh issued a scathing public letter proclaiming Donald Trump as the “worst Republican candidate on economic issues.”
“Donald Trump is not a conservative,” McIntosh said of the new, hard-hitting ad. “He is a liberal on taxes, health care, eminent domain, and government bailouts. His record of bankruptcies and of donating to the Clintons and other big-government liberals needs to be exposed.”
While Trump does, from time to time, stumble across an issue that he’s currently conservative on — like immigration and securing the border — his positions have changed so frequently that it makes it difficult to have any assurance how he would actually govern as president.
