What Would It Take For Me to Turn on Trump?
Turning your question back on you Anonymous. Why did you never turn on Obama? For eight years, we on the Right had to tolerate him. He is a black man. Criticizing him like you criticize Trump was called racist. So he was inviolable. But during this time we watched in horror as he dismantled our country, working to radically transform it into a socialist/communist system.
But the American people caught on and said “No you don’t!” and pushed back at all levels of government. “We aren’t buying what you are selling.” So, Anonymous, why can’t you just accept it and try to find something we might buy?
But back to your question. To me, President Trump is an incredible person who along with his family are making uncalled for sacrifices to restore America–the country I grew up in and served in the military for. He is not an ideologue but has demonstrated that if one uses good old fashioned common sense American values, they come out conservative.
So, the only thing that would turn me off would be if he became one of you. That’s not going to ever happen, so your question becomes mute. The only other thing that would change it of course is for God to tell me He had changed his mind. However, His declarations are immutable so don’t hold your breath.
