Romney Endorser Is a Big Financial Backer of Harry Reid

I speak of course of The Trumpster, a.k.a., Donald Trump, who yesterday endorsed Mitt Romney. What a shocker. The Trumpster has also showered Senator Harry Reid, the archenemy of Nevada conservatives, with campaign cash in the past. So it is no surprise that The Trumpster would endorse Massachusetts liberal Romney, the man who introduced socialized healthcare in that state.

When a man like The Trumpster endorses a presidential candidate publicly, it is reasonable to assume that he does so because the two men have common political views. Among Trump’s positions when he himself toyed with running for president were: a preemptive nuclear strike on North Korea; a 14.25% wealth tax to supposedly pay for socialized medicine; a vast increase in defense spending; and no opposition to the welfare state.
