A Full List of Donald Trump's Rapidly Changing Policy Positions

After a year of campaigning, hundreds of interviews, stadium rallies, and press conferences, it is still difficult to glean a platform from the Republican nominee's powerfully incoherent rhetoric and constantly evolving views.

Donald Trump changes his mind so frequently and so dramatically that a compilation of his current policies would not tell the whole story, nor would it be up to date for very long — he once offered up three different views on abortion in eight hours. By mixing fact with many exaggerations and outright falsehoods in hundreds of interviews while simultaneously refusing to offer specifics — insisting that unpredictability is an advantage he'll use to cut better deals — Trump and the Republican Party that's nominated him are putting forward the most elusive presidential platform in modern history.

Consider the Muslim ban. Every time Trump and his team describes one of his most polarizing and defining policy positions, it is couched differently, making it impossible to determine how and to what degree Trump would implement such a thing if elected president. Initially, it was a full and complete ban on all Muslims; later, it was described as a ban that excluded citizens, members of the U.S. military, and Trump's good friends. These days, it's often described a ban on Muslims and people coming from countries with a history of terrorism — more than a third of the world, including major U.S. allies like France. On Monday, Trump said he hadn't actually limited his initial ban — he'd expanded it — but just didn't want to say it was about Muslims. Meanwhile, his campaign insists that the policy has not changed at all.

Report: Cops mistake Krispy Kreme donut glaze for meth, arrest man

ORLANDO -- A Florida man told the Orlando Sentinel the he was arrested and brought to jail after police in Orlando mistook a few flakes of donut glaze in his car for bits of crystal methamphetamine.

Daniel Rushing, 65, said in an interview with the newspaper that he had just dropped off a neighbor for chemotherapy when he was pulled over on Dec. 11, around 1 p.m. Earlier, he had eaten a Krispy Kreme donut, he said.

The officer spotted "a rock like substance on the floor board where his feet were," according to a police report obtained by the Orlando Sentinel.

She and other officers debated whether the donut glaze was crack cocaine or meth, finally concluding it was the highly addictive crystalline stimulant that has ravaged communities across the country.

The police report noted that Rushing told police it was Krispy Kreme donut glaze, but he was arrested and held in jail for 10 hours on a charge of possession of methamphetamine with a firearm, according to the newspaper.

A state lab later concluded that the glaze was not an illegal drug, and three days later the charge was dropped.

Last night I proposed that we flood Trump with the Constitution

http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1251&pid=2319648

Following Khizr Khan's speech and his asking Trump if he had ever read the Constitution, I thought about the successful campaigns of this nature we have had in the past and thought this would be perfect. Maybe, just maybe Trump would read one.

So if you are with me on this, DUer SticksnStones provided the following links:
Buy a constitution for $1

Send it to Trump Tower,

We need a Send Trump the Constitution campaign

We could flood Trump with copies of the Constitution.



After listening to Khizr Khan, and his inspiring speech, we owe it to the memory of all those who died for this country.

See Rare Photos of a Young Hillary Clinton

?quality=75&strip=color&w=419

Hillary Clinton: little girl smiling in a white dress with a bicycle behind her. Hillary: splashing the water with her feet while attending college. Clinton: meeting President Ronald Reagan with her husband, Bill.

Rarely seen photos of the Democratic presidential nominee reveal the human behind the First Lady, Senator, Secretary of State and all the other titles that attached to a woman who has been at the pinnacle of American politics for 25 years.

This gallery traces Clinton’s development growth from a young girl to a college student and then wife to Bill. The photos have a deeply personal nature.
