Trump vs Trump

2018-April-19

Donald Trump has been known to change policy stands or say completely contradictory things, both during his campaign and presidency, sometimes on the same day. That’s not the smartest thing to do when your job requires others to believe you and trust you.

Why does Mr. Trump do that? Is he an unprincipled opportunistic liar? Does he have an evil twin brother or clone? Could he have a split personality disorder? Is he a Manchurian candidate who is controlled by some evil dictator? So many possibilities.

Someday, perhaps, we will discover the why, but for now, let’s look at just a few of Donald’s Trump vs Trump biggest hits. Feel free to share some of your own. -Martie
