No worries on the Trump Wall. He is going to make Mexico pay for it.

Worry not. According to Newt - making some Sunday rounds - Trump is still 'evolving' when asked about him walking back deportation. And the Muslim Ban. And the wall.

Translation: There will be no mass deportation; no wall; and no Muslim Ban.

His supporters will be SO disappointed.
Newt, the champion of NAFTA, China's entry into WTO and making China's legacy trade relationship permanent? That Newt? Or are we talking about Fig?

He implied he would deport fewer than Obama has because, unlike Obama, he has a big heart (and must capture at least 40% of the Hispanic vote to win).

How so? I have a standard for who I want as president. Donald Trump doesn't come even remotely close to meeting any of those standards.

And the alternative is whoever I damn well please. I can vote for myself if I want to. And honestly, if the Republicans didn't want Hillary, maybe they should have done a better job of finding a candidate that is liked by more people. I know Republicans who are voting Democrat because they don't want Trump representing them. Who knew a man with no political experience, who relies heavily on not being politically correct to gain support, and has few firm beliefs at best wouldn't be attractive to a wider audience. I mean, I knew, but I'm thoughtful.

John Kasich, Marco Rubio, hell, Jeb Bush would have made better candidates. Since Mitt Romney wasn't interested, those were the best options. And they made their choice, and all I can say: they deserve to lose.

Those you mentioned are all pro-amnesty. How does that make them good candidates?

I don't think so. Doing that will run the risk of losing his fan base, and most people have already sort of written him off. While I think every president should be closer to the center rather than farther away, Trump moving in wouldn't make him more electable in my humble opinion.
