Donald Trump continues his rise with his re-branded form of Republicanism.
Traditionally, the Republican Party’s stance has been pro-free market, which I should note, isn’t the same as being pro-business. Under a pro-free market stance, if a foreign country is better at producing certain products than we are, we should allow them to produce those products and allocate labor in our own country differently.
Trump has risen in the Republican Party as a populist – hardly surprising when Americans are fed up with the two party system. And guess what? It’s working.
Whether it be championing unions or the minimum wage, Democrats have always portrayed themselves as the “workers party.” Trump is looking to change that. Breitbart reports:
Presumptive Republican nominee and real estate billionaire Donald Trump declared Thursday that the GOP will become the party of the working class, a remarkable stance in an era of mass Third World immigration encouraged by international corporations seeking to boost profits.
“Five, ten years from now — different party. You’re going to have a worker’s party,” Trump toldBloomberg News. “A party of people that haven’t had a real wage increase in 18 years, that are angry.”
“What I want to do, I think cutting Social Security is a big mistake for the Republican Party. And I know it’s a big part of the budget. Cutting it the wrong way is a big mistake, and even cutting it [at all],” Trump said.
The billionaire businessman said that while he was unaware of the GOP-backed Gang of Eight deal and subsequent immigration bills, which would triple immigration from the Third World to satisfy business interests, he backed border security: “When I made my speech at Trump Tower, the June 16 speech, I didn’t know about the Gang of Eight… I just knew instinctively that our borders are a mess.”
With the exception of those comments about Social Security – it sounds good to me!
