Trump is a fake conservative
To the editor:
The biggest FAKER of all is none other than President Donald Trump.
He is POSING as a conservative, but he is actually a FAKE-CONSERVATIVE.
What is my evidence?
You can look this up for yourself on the internet.
In 1999, he proposed that the Congress pass a new “national wealth tax” of 14.25 percent (NOT income) on all individuals who have a “net worth”/“net wealth” of $10 million and higher. That is a VERY liberal idea.
He wanted the money generated by it to be spent on two items:
1. Totally eliminating the national debt (that sounds “conservative”).
2. Spending the remainder on adding it to the Social Security trust fund to make it more fully solvent for additional years (that does not sound “conservative”). I am assuming that we all know that it is presently fully solvent through the year 2034, meaning that there is no reason to cut benefits right now (which the less than totally truthful conservatives do not want the public to know).
This man has been POSING as a “conservative.” He has been manipulating all of us and playing us for fools and suckers, both his supporters and his critics.
