Trump’s only al­le­giance is to him­self

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor - STEPHEN BALL Lan­caster, Ohio

Lib­erty. Fed­er­al­ism. State sovereignty. Elim­i­nata­tion of un­nec­es­sary fed­eral de­part­ments and pro­grams to bal­ance the bud­get and bring the fed­eral gov­ern­ment back into scale. Per­sonal re­spon­si­bil­ity. Supreme Court ac­tivism.

Ever hear Don­ald Trump use any of these terms or phrases in his speeches? His cam­paign ads? His in­ter­views? The an­swer is no. There is a very good ex­pla­na­tion for this: He’s not a con­ser­va­tive or a Repub­li­can and he’s cer­tainly not a con­sti­tu­tion­al­ist. Does that mean he’s a Demo­crat or a lib­eral or a pro­gres­sive? No, he’s none of those, ei­ther. Don­ald Trump is a cor­po­ratist, mean­ing he will use the fed­eral gov­ern­ment and his po­lit­i­cal con­tacts to ob­tain ev­ery pos­si­ble ad­van­tage to make money — by any means.

So if you’re look­ing for Don­ald Trump to be your sav­ior, you’d do well to think again. “The Don­ald” is not The Lord.
