Donald Trump seems to have just set a speed record for flip flops. As Electoral Vote hilariously put it:
Donald Trump sat for an interview Friday with Face the Nation. By that point, it had been more than 24 hours since he had explained his deeply-held views on abortion rights, so it was time for him to switch positions again. Thus, The Donald explained to moderator John Dickerson that while he believes abortion constitutes murder, “the laws are now set.” It would be difficult — impossible, perhaps — to craft a worse position on this issue, at least from a political perspective. In one fell swoop, the GOP frontrunner managed to alienate pro-choice folks by calling them murderers while at the exact same time alienating pro-life advocates by telling them “tough luck.”
After the inevitable blowback that came once excerpts of the interview were published, Trump got a head start on his Saturday flip-flop, and switched to abortion position #5 late Friday, declaring that he would “change the law through judicial appointments.” Now, he’s got the whole weekend to shift gears to position #6, whatever it may be.
This is not the first, nor will it probably be the last, multiple major flip flop on the part of Trump. In fact, Face The Nation has put together an online quiz. “Can you keep track of Trump’s shifting responses to policy questions?” Click the link to find out.
