“Look, anything I say right now — I’m not the president. Everything is a suggestion, no matter what you say, it’s a suggestion.”
If you think that Donald Trump changes positions as frequently as most people change their underwear, you would be wrong, because, you see, he has no core values, principles or positions and if he did, they are subject to change at a moments notice. So don’t get to hung up on positions like “build the wall,” or anything else that he campaigned on.
In what is the ultimate spin of frequent flip-flops, and the ultimate cover for future ones, the bloviating billionaire and reality TV actor called into Fox & Friends (which should be renamed Trump & Friends, but I digress) to say that not only was his Muslim ban only a suggestion (although it was chiseled in stone on his campaign website as a rock-solid position, not a “suggestion”), but that “anything” he has said during the campaign is simply a suggestion.
Trump was asked by Fox & Friends co-host about his flip-flop on his proposed ban on Muslims entering the country.
“Yeah, it was a suggestion,” Trump answered. “Look, anything I say right now — I’m not the president. Everything is a suggestion, no matter what you say, it’s a suggestion.”
His statement this morning provides cover for any campaign promises that he breaks should he get elected. His fallback will be, “That wasn’t a campaign promise. It was only a suggestion.”
One can only wonder what would have happened if Trump had revealed this amazing announcement earlier in his campaign.
Build the wall? Oh, that’s only a suggestion. Defeat ISIS, yeah, that is too. “EVERYTHING is a suggestion.”
It seems that Donald Trump’s positions are more fluid that Obama’s gender identity.
