Trump has no principles. That’s obvious.
Today, he’s all about tight borders. But in 2013, he was slamming Mitt Romney for being too hard on the Mexicans, and his own businesses still reject American job applicants in favor of foreigners.
He was pro-abortion and a supporter of gun control until about 10 minutes ago.
He likes the idea of a national, single-payer health insurance plan, and favors higher taxes on the rich.
He simultaneously appeals to isolationists AND promises to smash ISIS.
Does he mean anything he says? PROBABLY not- which is why the Fortune 500 would take him over Cruz (though they’d prefer Hillary to either).
Good example: Trump refuses to allow the transcripts of his meetings with the New York Times editorial board to be made public. Why? PROBABLY because he told them off the record that his anti-immigration rhetoric is just fr show, and that he doesn’t really mean any of it. The Fortune 500 set already suspects he’s a very different, more pragmatic guy in the boardroom, and that he’d put "principle "aside to cut deals. Cruz is a True Believer and probably wouldn’t.
