Trump’s ‘Road to Damascus’

I think it’s ironic (and hypocritical) for Donald Trump to say he’s a conservative when the truth is for the last 20 years, his arguments have been liberal. He said he has given money to liberal candidates for business reasons, fine! He is trying to cover his butt for personal reasons. Why is he now stating the Democrats have ruined things?

People have argued Ronald Reagan was once a liberal who became a conservative. The difference is Ronald Reagan changed after a 40-year period. Trump’s “road to Damascus” was when he decided to run for president. He is clearly a phony.
