When Donald Trump first began his run for the presidency, it came to light that Hillary Clinton attended his wedding. Then it came out that Donald Trump called the Clintons to talk just before he started his run for the presidency in August 2015. All of this was quite suspicious, but when I saw this video of Trump praising Clinton’s performance as Secretary of State and supporting a potential run for the presidency, something hit me–a flashback to earlier times–Bill Clinton’s presidential races in the 1990s.
It occurred to me that Trump has also run or talked about running for president before, but he didn’t run in 2012. He talked about it, and seemed to have the election locked up at one time. That was a little odd because Clinton did not run in 2012 either. It makes sense that Clinton didn’t run because the democrats had a sitting presidential candidate. However, there is no similar reason that Trump didn’t run as a republican, especially with the lead that he had in the polls.
Then another thought came to me from decades past. When Bill Clinton ran in 1992 and 1996, Ross Perot also ran. Isn’t it strange how fortune seems to shine on the Clintons and hands them a crazy billionaire candidate to split the vote and help them win? How odd it is that these candidates never spring up otherwise.
That isn’t all. In 1992 when Ross Perot ran, he also dropped out of the race for a while, right after Bill Clinton accepted the nomination and was riding high in the polls. He jumped back in later, perhaps when Clinton failed to dominate the race. In the end, Perot got 19% of the vote gave Clinton the election by running a conservative, populist campaign. He did the same in 1996 for Bill Clinton’s reelection.
Hillary Clinton explained her relationship to Donald Trump his way.
For conservatives who are thinking about voting for Trump, there is a great deal to consider. Donald Trump has a long history of supporting liberals and liberal causes.
The video below is a set of clips of liberal statements by Trump that has been collected by an opposition PAC. It is bound to create serious doubts issues for conservatives.
