Conservatives say that Donald Trump isn’t conservative enough. Some members of the GOP say that Trump will change the Republican Party. Some establishment conservatives are afraid that a Trump presidency will end the GOP.
The Republican Party has just passed what is being referred to as the most conservative platform in the history of the GOP. The platform expresses Trump’s ideas on immigration reform and implementing an “America first” international trade policy.
The platform also declares that marriage is between a man and a woman and strongly opposes abortion.
Conservative Tribune reports:
One of the most common lines of attack used against presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump during the Republican primary was that Trump wasn’t a real conservative and was going to change the Republican Party if nominated.
While that certainly is still a possibility, it is looking increasingly unlikely, as the Republican Party just passed what is being called the “most conservative platform” in GOP history.
“The influence of Trump is apparent, particularly on his signature issues of immigration reform and trade policy,” the U.K. Guardian reported. The platform specifically called for building Trump’s border wall, rescinding President Barack Obama’s unconstitutional executive action on amnesty for illegal immigrants, enforcing U.S. immigration law, and implementing an “America first” international trade policy.
