It is political moments like this one that makes me smile. I find it kind of interesting that Donald Trump is tossing around the idea of a presidential run. This week, he came out as pro-life- whereas before he was seen kind of squishy on the issue.
In an interview this past week with Laura Ingraham from Fox News, Trump characterized himself as “pro-life.” In his 2000 book The America We Deserve, Trump wrote, “I support a woman’s right to choose but I am uncomfortable with the procedures.” But, in an apparant reversal, he told the audience at CPAC, “I am pro-life” and pledged to fight for the reversal of Obamacare, which contains abortion funding loopholes.
While I have yet to form decisions and opinions on his other political stances, I’m sure those will come out soon should he decided to run. On Thursday at his surprise appearance at CPAC he simultaneously raised the delight and the ire of the crowd by saying, “By the way, Ron Paul cannot get elected. I’m sorry to tell you….”
He goes on, “And you know what else? I like Ron Paul, I think he’s a good guy. But honestly, he just has zero chance of getting elected! He has to win an election. And I can tell you this, if I run and if i win this country will be respected again. This country will be respected again. I can tell you that.”
Some are calling his the best speech of the day… You decide!
