The Club for Growth, an influential anti-spending group, is warning its followers that potential presidential candidate Donald Trump is a wolf in sheep’s clothing — calling him just another “tax-hiking liberal” and a “king of protectionism” who doesn’t deserve conservative support in the next election.The full story is here.
“Donald Trump for president? You’ve got to be joking,” Club for Growth President Chris Chocola said. “Donald Trump has advocated for massive tax increases that display a stunning lack of knowledge of how to create jobs. His love for a socialist-style universal health care system and his alarming obsession with protectionist policies are automatic disqualifiers among free-market conservatives. This publicity stunt will sputter and disappear just as quickly as the ‘The Apprentice’ is losing viewers.”
