Donald Trump’s supporters think “he tells the truth.” These are actual Trump quotes:

“I’m totally pro-choice.” (Fox News, 1999)

“He (Obama) is doing a really good job.” (CNN, 2009)

“I know Hillary and I think she’d make a great president …” (“Trump Blog,” 2008)

“Millions of women … are helped by Planned Parenthood.” (Houston, 2016)

On The Trump Tapes: Vol. 1 (YouTube) Trump says he favors government-run health care and gun restrictions. He thinks “partial birth” abortions should be legal. He tells Wolf Blitzer the best qualified person to make a nuclear deal with Iran would be Hillary Clinton. He says “you can’t throw out everybody,” referring to Mexican immigrants who have been here illegally for many years. Trump praises Nancy Pelosi for trying to impeach George W. Bush. He says that the economy does better under Democrats.

Donald Trump has no real principles. He tells gullible people whatever they want to hear.
