  1. I have noticed this for a while now. I have done sarcastic posts and serious posts after articles where he walked back a statement.

    My serious concern is that if Trump can't clearly state his message during the election, what will he do and say off the cuff if he us President? And to who? And what would foreign leaders and citizens say if Trump misstates his position. It's scary. I really would like to see some journalists address that.
