Skip to comments.Donald Trump Accidentally Reveals He’s Just Another Big-Government Liberal
Posted on 03/30/2016 7:07:59 AM PDT by cann
GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump believes education is one the most essential functions of the U.S. government. Its right up there with security and providing health care for the nation, he told a crowd in Wisconsin Tuesday night.
Yet Trump has called for the elimination of the Department of Education, meaning he would destroy the agency responsible for doing what he claims is so important for the country.
On Tuesday, Trump appeared at a CNN town hall in Milwaukee, a week before the states primary election.
An attendee asked what he views as the top three functions of the United States government.
The greatest function of all by far is security for our nation. I would also say health care, I would also say education, Trump replied. There are many many things. But I would say the top three are security, security, security.

I agree Trump is another big government liberal.
What I’m not sure about, since it comes from the Huffington/Puffington Post, are they happy about it or disappointed?
Fantastic !!! Big Government Liberals win General Elections!! The Democrats must be petrified!! But why are the Big Government Republicans fighting against Donald Trump?
When you ask a broad question, please expect a broad answer.
If this were true, why would they say it?
Thanks you for going all the way to Huffington to post this piece of drivel. /truth
Welll duh. He’s always been that. Just way too many who don’t see it or willfully ignore it.
Well your sophism here is that Ted Cruz is a solid conservative and not a cardboard cutout politician who will fellate you to the dulcimer tones of him pontificating on Thomas Paine, de tocqueville and Ronald Reagan. I trust Trump over Cruz all day long, Cruz was not even the best conservative out there, Mike Lee, Duncan Hunter or even Tim Scott would have made a much better candidate than creepy Ted
Trump is not the solution to problem. He IS the problem, personified.
That was a softball question.
What are the top three functions of the United States government?
From the Preamble to THE CONSTITUTION:
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence,
promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
Even Trump should have gotten that right. RIGHT?
“I trust Trump over Cruz all day long”
Dr. Carson has assured us that Trump does not believe all that he tells us.
Typical HuffPo — they don’t recognize any other level of government than almighty, all-powerful, all-consuming Fedzilla.
” Trump has called for the elimination of the Department of Education,”
Sometimes you have to tear down a building to build a new one.
One of my hot button issues is the insane cost of college these days. There’s no logical justification for it and it’s putting our children in debt that they won’t be able to recover from for alot of their adult life.
here’s the dailycaller saying the same thing: http://dailycaller.com/2016/03/29/trump-says-security-education-and-health-care-are-the-top-three-functions-of-us-gov-video/
does it change your mind due to the source?
Yet he endorsed him, to be fair here you guys love your native son Ted Cruz, so I discount what any Texan has to say...you guys gave us George Bush, LBJ....no more Texans in the Whitehouse. You guys make mean BBQ but politicians you guys suck at.
The public school system should be dismantled.
Trump promises to become more serious and informed about government any day now. That may even include reading the Constitution, but he’d probably struggle with anything past the first three words.
