Amidst a field of candidates that seems uninspiring at best, Donald Trump has taken the airwaves by storm, creating a feeding frenzy of media attention and headlines touting his prowess in name recognition polls pitting him against the president and other GOP contenders. If you’re a conservative who has caught Trump-fever, take a second to digest the strong medicine of Trump’s past positions. These philosophical positions go far beyond his personal support for uber-liberals like Chuck Schumer and Harry Reid.
According to OnTheIssues.org, Trump:
- Supported the assault weapons ban
- Supports universal health care
- Calls missile defense inappropriate
- Opposes a flat tax for its benefits to the wealthy
Those are all Obama-esque positions on issues that will define the 2012 election for president.
