Is Donald Trump really pro-gun? He recently received the endorsement of the National Rifle Association, and he publicly declared that it is time to end gun-free zones. If he’s serious about ending gun-free zones, he might start with the Trump properties, of which most (perhaps all; I was unable to check them all) prohibit the introduction of firearms. Walk into a Trump hotel openly carrying a gun, and someone will stop you.
Trump came out in the past in favor of a ban on assault rifles. Now he claims to be against such a ban. What are his real views? Because Trump will say almost anything on any subject in an attempt to please his audience, it’s difficult to know. He used to be in favor of Obamacare. Now he claims to want to abolish it. He once thought Hilary Clinton was a superb secretary of state. Now he claims she did a lousy job.
What would Trump be like as a president if we were dumb enough to elect him? It’s hard to tell. His opinions can take a 180-degree turn if that is required to please his present audience. His opinions are as genuine as his hair. In fact, Trumps hair is probably a symbol of his whole personality, fake.
As to the Egypt Air flight that crashed in the Mediterranean, Trump’s words were “A plane got blown out of the sky, and if anyone doesn’t think it was blown out of the sky, you’re 100 percent wrong.” In other words, Trump feels that the experts investigating the crash are “100 percent wrong,” because while not discounting the possibility of a terrorist act, they say the evidence they have gathered so far indicates that the cause was very unlikely to have been a bomb.” Of course, Donald Trump knows more about aviation accidents than any of the people who have dedicated their lives to studying them.
