The comparison of ‘Donald Trump’s positions years ago, to that of ‘elected politicians’ positions years ago, is absurd.
NO. 1 – The ‘Politician’s position’ was a promise to the voters in exchange for their vote. This creates an obligation / duty.
NO. 2 – Donald has been a Private Citizen (as you likely are now) and Private Citizens are under no obligation or duty to publicly state their political positions.
NO. 3 – If and when a Private Citizen does choose to publicly state political positions, they are under no obligation to be truthful or even partially truthful.
Many private citizens actually prefer to give the ‘safe / expedient answer’ than their true feelings for a whole host of reasons—including not to ruffle personal and/or BUSINESS relationships.
