But remember, we can't afford cuts in overseas military bases, foreign aid or foreign wars. Only programs for senior Americans here at home are "unaffordable."

I saw the interview. He gave his usual non-specific, non-committal answer to a reporter's question about "entitlements" — "Yeah, we could look at that at some point."

Then he talked about growth and tax cuts.

It was a nothingburger, and he said absolutely not a single word about "programs for senior Americans."

But hysterics gonna hysteria.

“He gave his usual non-specific, non-committal answer “

He knows how to be clear and explicit when it comes to Social Security and Medicare. Four years ago, running for president, he was extremely clear, promising he would not cut them. He was so clear that GOP officials booed him at the South Carolina debate when he made this clear, unequivocal promise.

Today, in contrast, he was “non-specific,” but said “we are going to look at that.” The contrast between four years ago and today - a clearly stated promise versue weasel words, was very troubling to me. And I speak as a Trump supporter from the moment he came down the elevator.
