Donald Trump, who is under fraud investigation in two states promised a gathering of Iowa Republicans that he would restore honesty to the US government if he is elected president.
Early in his speech at Joni Ernst’s Roast and Ride Event in Iowa, Trump said, “This is a campaign about big ideas designed to help everyday people. Everyone. It’s going to help everyone. These are the people who work hard, but who don’t have a voice. Their voice has been taken away. It’s also a campaign about restoring honesty and accountability to government.”
Trump is talking about honesty and accountability while he refuses to release his medical records and tax returns. Donald Trump is speaking about honesty while under investigation for fraud in multiple states.
Donald Trump has proven himself to be the exact opposite of honest and accountable. An accountable person does not run up mountains of debt and then file for bankruptcy.
Trump can’t run on the issues because he knows nothing about policy. The Republican nominee can’t run on his character because he has a lifetime record of discrimination and dishonesty. Trump can’t run on values because the only thing he has ever valued in his life is making money for Donald Trump.
There has not been a less honest presidential nominee in the modern political era than Donald Trump. The honesty argument is one that Trump is destined to lose, as only a fool would trust Donald Trump.
