For the last few weeks, we have been reporting on Donald Trump, who found himself the target of liberal backlash after he criticized the U.S.’s relationship with Mexico during his campaign announcement.
While many didn’t take Trump seriously as a presidential candidate at the beginning, that all changed last week when polls revealed that Trump is currently the frontrunner in the race for the GOP nomination. Despite his success, the GOP establishment has been on a mission to take Trump down because he refuses to let them control him.
One of the main accusations Trump has faced since announcing his candidacy is that he makes wild, outlandish comments just to shake things up and rile up Republicans. However, a newly surfaced interview from 27 years ago shows that Trump has been making these comments for decades.
According to Conservative Tribune, the video shows a 1988 interview with Oprah in which Trump does not hold back.
“I’d make our allies pay their fair share. We’re a debtor nation,” Trump said when he was asked what he’d do as president. “Something’s going to happen over the next number of years with this country. You can’t keep going on losing $200 billion.”
When Oprah asked Trump if he would ever run for president, he said that he probably wouldn’t, but he added that if he did run, he would have a “helluva chance” of winning.
“I don’t know about your audience, but I think people are tired of seeing the United States ripped off,” he said.
Liberals and members of the GOP establishment will be livid when they see this video, as it proves that there is nothing fake about Trump or his stances. What do you think about this? Let us know in the comments section.
