“Donald Trump isn’t fighting for conservative economic principles; he’s fighting for himself and telling people what he thinks they want to hear.”
Washington, DC – Club for Growth Action, a political arm of the Club for Growth, released the following statement as Donald Trump continues his political pandering tour.
“Donald Trump has turned political pandering into an art form,” said Club for Growth president David McIntosh. “In Iowa, Trump gave his full support to ethanol and the federal Renewable Fuel Standard, and supported a subsidy for wind energy. When asked at a community college what he would do to make college more affordable, Trump said, ‘Well the only way you can do it is you have to start some governmental program… So we’re going to have to start a program.’ Those are the kind of liberal big government policies that Democrats embrace. Republicans who fight for conservative economic principles should oppose subsidies and work to end government programs, not start new ones. But Donald Trump isn’t fighting for conservative economic principles; he’s fighting for himself and telling people what he thinks they want to hear. He’s still the worst kind of politician.”
