Ron Lowe: Trump used to be a Democrat

The election is getting down to the wire. What don’t you know about Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump yet? Donald Trump was a Democrat as recently as 2005.

Donald Trump was pro-choice at one time, and probably still is. Are anti-abortion Republicans ever in for a big surprise if Donald Trump throws a temper tantrum.

Donald Trump is unfit to be president. He’s vindictive, impulsive, ignorant of American history or law (except when it comes to IRS laws he used to stiff the government). He is without tact, diplomacy or compassion, and he’s still got this thing about Russia’s president Vladimir Putin.

Trump will continue to threaten the use of nuclear weapons in international disputes, and propose the U.S. withdraw from NATO. Mr. Trump keeps saying the election is rigged. Yes it is Donald; by Republican voter suppression and Voter ID laws and because of the Republican gerrymandering scheme that distorts and subverts elections in Republican candidates favor.

America, you’ve been played by Trump and the Republicans.
