Speaking with Joshua Green of Bloomberg, Donald Trump took off his Trump mask and revealed that he is really socialist Bernie Sanders underneath.
Asked what the GOP would look like in five years, Trump replied confidently, “Love the question. Five, 10 years from now—different party. You’re going to have a worker’s party.”
That jives perfectly with Trump’s assertion that the Republican Party is not the conservative party. He continued with his defense of the entitlement system that is killing the American economy, “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].”
Then Trump segued to point out that he has no principles of his own other than what is popular: “I’m not sure I got there through deep analysis. My views are what everybody else’s views are. When I give speeches, sometimes I’ll sign autographs and I’ll get to talk to people and learn a lot about the party.”
Trump doubled down on his message of winning at all costs, no matter what principles have to be espoused, bragging that believing in Trump rather than adhering to conservative principles is what matters: “I’ve never seen anybody vote for a platform. I’m less concerned about that than I am about my own views … It’s going to make the Republican Party strong again.”
It’s only a matter of time before Trump starts chanting, “Workers of the world, unite behind Trump!”
