Bush isn’t the first presidential candidate to take fire from Trump’s Instagram account. I want to save the middle class…The hedge fund guys didn’t build this country.
Other, ostensibly more serious, Republican candidates have the opportunity to distance themselves from his platform and to propose a humane, realistic solution to the immigration issue.
The better-off may also find it radical when they can no longer afford to have their gardens, lawns and young children attended to. “We don’t need more speculation with the American economy hanging in the balance”.
At 9:30 on the nose, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average opening down a shocking 1,000 points, Trump tweeted out another comment, this time broadening his critique to all of Asia.
“I think all things are possible”, Carson said, adding that “it’s much too early” to start talking about 2016 tickets. Trump’s new ad is just an interview with Mother Superior, where in response to “Would you like to see him run?” she simply says, “No, I really don’t”. On the CBS show “Face the Nation”, on August 23rd, Trump stated he would change the tax system to make hedge funds pay more in taxes.
Republican opponent Jeb Bush and other critics say Trump’s plan won’t work and will further alienate Hispanic voters who have trended Democratic in recent elections.
Trump has also asked hedge fund billionaire Carl Icahn to be Treasury secretary, and said recently that Icahn had agreed to handle U.S. trade negotiations with China and Japan if Trump makes it to the White House.
After initially referring to the real-estate magnate as “another candidate” in his initial remarks, Bush later criticized Trump directly. Speaking at a event yesterday hosted by conservative Americans for Prosperity in Columbus, Ohio, Jindal said, “Immigration without assimilation is invasion”, and claimed that he could secure the southern border with Mexico within six months of becoming president.
Oh, now this is just sad, even sadder than the last time we said something was sad about Jeb Bush, like last week. “I mean that man doesn’t have a clue”, Mr. Trump said. I know many of them. Take for example his thoughts on changing the 14 amendment of the US Constitution, which reads in part “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States…”
Carly Fiorina turned uncharacteristically soft, saying she agreed with some of Trump’s tough positions on immigration but questioned his ability to implement them.
