Strange how the critical context as supplied in brackets by the hard-left political activist pretending to journalism does not actually appear in the video.
Does that not also seem strange to you?
“Does that not also seem strange to you?”
What seems strange to me is that Trump can’t be as clear and unequivocal today as he was when he ran 4 years ago. 4 years ago he said again and again, explicitly, he would never cut Social Security and Medicare. He was even booed at the GOP debate in South Carolina when he said this, because it was diametrically opposed to the standard GOP position, and the audience was full of GOP bigwigs.
He had a chance today to be just as clear and unequivocal. But he wasn’t. Instead, when asked about entitlements, he said “we’re going to take a look at that”. An open-ended response that was nowhere near the clear and unequivocal words he voiced four years ago.
Look, I voted for Trump and supported MAGA to the hilt. If he’s pulling back from it - maybe because he’s being pressured by the GOP Senate, which has leverage over him, with impeachment - he is going to have challenges getting reelected. He was voted in by blue collar Democrats. If he starts pushing Ryan-Romney-Bush-McConnell policies on entitlements, a lot of those voters will stay home.
