National Review Doesn’t Hold Back Against Donald Trump Calling Him a ‘Menace to American Conservatism’
Trump is a philosophically unmoored political opportunist who would trash the broad conservative ideological consensus within the GOP in favor of a free-floating populism with strong-man overtones. Trump’s political opinions have wobbled all over the lot. The real-estate mogul and reality-TV star has supported abortion, gun control, single-payer health care à la Canada, and punitive taxes on the wealthy. (He and Bernie Sanders have shared more than funky outer-borough accents.) Since declaring his candidacy he has taken a more conservative line, yet there are great gaping holes in it.
Nationally syndicated talkshow host Glenn Beck is a part of the group who contributed to "Against Trump" for National Review.
Beck states that Trump has supported too many "big government" policies during the Obama administration. Three of them are: "the stimulus, the auto bailouts, and the bank bailouts. Barack Obama supported all three. So did Donald Trump," Beck wrote.
As it gets closer to the start of the 2016 primaries, Trump continues to poll well with Republican voters in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina.
The final Republican Presidential Debate before the Iowa Caucus is Thursday, January 28 on the FOX News Channel.
