Trump Tilts Further Left With His Climate Change Stance

So he’s for touchback amnesty, single-payer healthcare, a childcare plan that is nothing more than expanded entitlements (an add-in from his daughter), a tariff on imports, is against fracking, and now wants to reconsider global warming.

Sounds like the perfect candidate.

For Democrats.

“There is still much that needs to be investigated in the field of ‘climate change,'” he said in response to the questionnaire. He suggested that the nation focus on efforts to reduce dependence on fossil fuels, rather than combating climate change.

In the past, he has called climate change a “hoax” created by the Chinese, but he also has said he supports local bans on fracking.

“Perhaps we should be focused on developing energy sources and power production that alleviates the need for dependence on fossil fuels,” said Trump in answering the questionnaire. “We must decide on how best to proceed so that we can make lives better, safer and more prosperous.”

For most other conservative thinkers, the climate change… aka… “weather” debate has already been settled, and they recognize it as a wedge issue, in order to create broader government regulations.

Trump, like someone trying on a really uncomfortable suit for the first time, can’t really seem to adjust to this new fit in the Republican suit he’s been wearing for the past year.

With that in mind, don’t be shocked to see it end up in a crumpled heap in a corner, somewhere.
