GOP Platform = Trump Wall

by
July 13, 2016


CLEVELAND — Donald Trump is putting his stamp on the official policy platform of the Republican Party.

Republican Platform Committee members on Tuesday voted to include language calling for the construction of a wall on the U.S.-Mexico
border.

And in a nod their presumptive presidential nominee’s support for a temporary ban on Muslim immigration, they also endorsed language that would impose “special scrutiny” of foreign nationals seeking to enter the U.S. from “regions associated with Islamic terrorism.”

Both provisions are departures from the GOP platform of 2012, when Republicans nominated Mitt Romney for president.

    About time. However the ban against Muslims should be permanent. All Muslims are our enemies.

  • williweb says:

    Sounds like the GOP is finally wising up. Trump 2016
    Hillary for jail 2017

  • Wayne Thorson says:

    Mister Trump, take down that wall.

  • Jim Matis says:

    This is great news.

  • James Maxwell says:

    Mitt Romney was an idiot who did not even campaign, he just left town and
    surrendered to the Democrat Socialist and now they are trying to bring
    him back? The GOP has lost its mind and I am beginning to wonder if or
    when it deserted the VOTERS who elected some of these nimrods who are
    two cowardly to stand up for the principles that are supposed to keep us
    safe from harm and protect our rights and freedoms as Americans. Over
    the past 8 years they have rolled over for the Democrat Socialist and
    not stood up for us under a bevy of excuses. Time to grow some and
    get us back on track.

  • tarbella says:

    I hope he does build the wall and also considers those [ IsIs ] that are already here, and doesn’t forget the training camps that are spread out all over this nation either. Gen. Flynn would not be my pick [ even though he knows much about war and how to handle the bad guys ], except for only advice on that subject, as he is a Democrat and believes in abortion. Newt, I feel would do well as VP.

    1. Rodney Steward says:

      I totally agree, Newt would be the best choice, he knows the system inside and out!

  • justinwachin says:

    The world is different now than it was when Mitt Romney ran for president. We have a border and we need to protect it. It only makes sense to be very careful when we accept refugees from areas of the world that hate us.

    While Hillary, President Obama and the Democrats ridicule the notion of commonsense protections, most Americans don’t. On election day many Americans will go to the polls. They may think it is wise to take commonsense steps to protect America.

  • maxx says:

    If the Republicans want to get the W.H. they had better take heed of what the publics says it wants. That is why the other 16 candidates the republicans tried to sell the public were thrown out. None of them were listening to what the public was saying. The people have chosen Trump and the GOP better not meddle with the peoples decision. If they do they will lose BIG TIME.

  • Webb says:

    Include language calling for the construction of a wall on the U.S.-Mexico
    border…
    Close Down, The Dept.of Energy, The Dept. of Labour, The EPA, HHS, and DHS these funds will start a Wall and The Balance, CUT out subsidies to all Corporations, Oil, Wind and Solar…
    Its way past time for a Border…without a border, its like a cup of Coffee without the cup!

    1. KKmoderate says:

      While you’re making a list let’s also cut department of education (not necessary to have federal intervention). Keep decisions and funds local.
      Oh and lest I forget if we go with a flat tax we can axe the IRS.
      If we scrutinize the welfare and corresponding give-away food and housing subsidies I’m sure we can trim those programs. We can fund this new oversight with the money we can save on deleting worthless federal departments. I am not advocating throwing everyone out without a safety net just the undeserving and illegals.

      1. Webb says:

        KK,
        I Apologize I forgot the dept. Of Education and yes I agree on a flat tax!

  • Delia Holloway says:

    Donald Trump wants what the majority of the people who are LEGAL citizens in the USA want. WE WANT A WALL to wall out MEXICO and CANADA with gates to be checked in and out like many other countries have for their safety. WE want the military built up to protect America and our Allies. We want convicts convicted. No discussion. Convicted. We want the GOP to stop the stupid stuff, pass term limits (2-5 yr terms for the Senate and 3-2 yr terms for the House. PERIOD. We want a bill passed that states the men and women who are servants to their states CANNOT pass a bill to raise their own salary. Salaries and benefits should be in line with our US Military and the health care for them and their staff should be the VA.

  • Richard Bagenstose says:

    well it’s not really about the wall, what good is a wall if you don’t patrol it, ofreako has pulled border agents off the border , and won’t let them or ice do there jobs like they are suppose to do, the wall is only for show, if you really want to solve the violence and crime , here is what you do, you catch them as they come across and no hearing just deport them back to where they came from , then , you start arresting blacks for there hate speech like they do for whites , then you round up all the gangs like , black panthers, ms 13, lavita mola and deport them and you will see racisum , violence , and crime come to an end , you can’t get rid of crime untill you get rid of the cause of it, and anyone caught trashing the country with hate speech get’s deported back to there own country, if you don’t like living here then get the hell out of our country, you have the whole world to find another place to live and i want to see you happy so leave and go there

  • PatrickHenry says:

    Great sign of Trump’s influence & popularity with the People. Everyone needs to get on board, get out & vote TRUMP 2016, or lose ANY hope of winning again.

  • David Stovall says:

    Israel was having terrible terrorist attacks, and they built a wall and cut the attacks 98% Liberals say walls don’t work. Liberals are right if they are in charge of guarding the wall, we can’t let liberals be in charge of anything. Walls much easier to guard than open borders,. Israel made theirs work.

    1. Rodney Steward says:

      We’re one of the few countries that don’t enforce their borders!

      1. David Stovall says:

        EU doesn’t and look at what is happening to them. And the liberals like Andrea Merkel want even more of the misery.

        1. Rodney Steward says:

          You’re right about that, and I thought that Merkel wanted to stop the gutter rats from coming in, she’s taken a lot of heat and has doubled her security staff!

        2. Retired says:

          What happened in the EU is the same as in the US, pushed by the UN. Obama is their patsy.

    2. Carol Burkhardt says:

      Yes, David Stovall. And former Congressman Duncan Hunter made a wall work in his CA congressional area!

  • T.W. says:

    TRUMP 2016!!

  • regulus30 says:

    I had to laugh at the hillary minions; Donald is considering a REAL GENERAL for his V.P. and then old windbag runs out to find a Navy Admiral.

    1. Robert Mix says:

      Yeah. As they say, monkey see, monkey do. Haha. Great observation. It would be funny if Trump now selected an experienced politician, wouldn’t it?

      1. regulus30 says:

        would be even greater if he allowed the V.P. to assume a large portion of supervising his new cabinet appointees.

        1. BILL3000 says:

          Trump will probably appoint Pam Geller as his Minister of Islamic Affairs.

          1. regulus30 says:

            BUT NOT LIKE OBAMA , who surrounded himself with communists ;;van jones, anita dunn, valerie jarrett, cass sunstein, john holgren;;liberalism is a mental disease with no cure.

      2. Retired says:

        He probably will, he has the media guessing and writing all kinds of BS.

      3. victoriadelacy says:

        He really couldn’t do better than taking on Mike Pence of Indiana, who has proven his conservative credentials as both a Congressman and Governor.

      4. Robert Mix says:

        Please note that my comment was made in response to a piece on Hillary but the way it is displayed is to make it look like a response to Trump and Pence. Typical libtard mis quoting.

  • charles becker says:

    GO TRUMP!

    1. BILL3000 says:

      Yes,Go to Nuremberg,Trump! Start your Trial Early!!

      1. JEAN says:

        YES HILLALRY IS THE ONLY ONE FACING TRIAL GET YOUR CRAP STRAIGHT.WHAT HAS TRUMP DONE TO GO TO TRIAL? NOTHING ANF DHE KEEPS DOING THINGS TRUMP WILL PUT HER IN JAIL FOR LOTD OF REASONS

  • Redfray says:

    Despite the hatred and shenanigans by the leadership of the GOP, Trump is trying to make our American country safer. Why does the GOP truly hate Trump? Why do many of the GOP supporters not want a fence, or strong methods of controlling illegals? The GOP is as bad as the Demo’s about telling the American conservative taxpaying citizens, your are stupid, and you need us to tell you how to live. They don’t want anyone coming into their little private club and telling them anything. We need new leadership in the republican party. The one’s we have now have a controlling philosophy, not a conservative or law abiding philosophy. What god is the GOP serving?

    2. Rodney Steward says:

      The most EVIL, MONEY!! We have no idea at how much money that these congressmen and senators are making from what comes across that border!

      1. Robert Mix says:

        Uh, aren’t they making several million dollars every year? Nice for people whose base salary is less than $200,000.

        1. Rodney Steward says:

          Yes, and those millions are from under the table deals, like drug cartels, China deals, and gun running deal with terrorist like Hellary and Opey! Why the system hates Trump for his statements about mexico and china! No matter how much money they have, it’s never enough, like a drug addict!!

    3. regulus30 says:

      you must ask? They hate him because he is going to shake up their gravy train if he is good on his word. Donald represents a departure from the one party rule [progressives] that has destroyed this nation in the last several decades.

      1. Carol Burkhardt says:

        True, regulus30. And we won’t see Trump doing absolutely ridiculous things like supporting that arrogant GOVT EMPLOYEE Kim Davis who refused to do her govt job…but demanded to stay employed and draw her big govt salary!!!!! Trump knows we aren’t ALL Southern Baptists. If her govt job went against her personal Southern Baptist policies, she should have simply resigned from her govt job.

        1. regulus30 says:

          things liberal government has no business in;; abortion, gender identity, birth control, healthcare, race baiting, religious persecution, nation building [Egypt, Libya, Syria , Somalia, Venezuela and Bolivia.

            regulus30 =Deregulated Moron.

          2. regulus30 says:

            BILL300 == big government FASCIST;

        2. Dr. G says:

          Wow. Way to pretend Conservatism then distract and twist to Big Government Support. You paid attention at the Paid Internet Troll Semininar, didn’t you?

          1. Carol Burkhardt says:

            That’s ridiculous, Dr. G. I worked hard (5 days a week) for Reagan in 1976 and for every Republican presidential candidate since then. I simply agree with regulus30…there are SOCIAL issues that need to be removed from our platform. Most voters’ social issues stands have to do with a person’s personal religious upbringing. As a very small example, you won’t find mainline Protestants fighting against birth control. Please remember that there are MANY different CHRISTIAN denominations…and all of them do not agree with Franklin Graham!

          2. Dr. G says:

            What’s ridiculous is to ignore moral underpinnings of our society and expect anything other than moral relativism and anarchy. My way lies recovery. Your way lies men in your bathroom and changing rooms. You fool no one.

          3. BILL3000 says:

            WORSE,Dr. G!! An Offense to All “right”-Wingers!! : Carol Burkhardt has Good Sense ,the Evil Bitch !!

          4. Carol Burkhardt says:

            Big Gov’t support? Me???? Please note, Dr G, that there’s a big difference between not supporting an arrogant self-absorbed gov’t employee (Kim Davis) who thinks she can simply close her gov’t office (continuing to get paid, of course) because SHE doesn’t approve of a supreme court ruling, because of HER particular religious denomination…and not supporting gov’t expansion. BIG difference.

          5. Dr. G says:

            Semantics. The effect is the same. And she never closed her office. She merely didn’t want to put her name on it. Instead of simply spouting off on-line, she actually followed her principles in reality.

          6. Carol Burkhardt says:

            Nope, Dr G. At first Kim Davis wouldn’t allow ANYONE in her office to sign. LATER, days later, she “allowed” others to sign. All the others in her office had no problem signing…except Kim Davis’ SON…whom Kim Davis hired!!!!! And you’re fine with this??????

          7. Dr. G says:

            My dear Liberal in Conservative clothing – that all depends on which media outlet you followed. Only those held hostage at an airport and being forced to watch CNN would hold forth such as yourslf. You need to separate comentary from actual reported facts, not liberal fantasy that is put out yet never corrected.

    4. judge45colt says:

      not only in the gop but in dc in general

    5. maxx says:

      The GOP hates Trump because he will serve the people not the self serving politicians. Hopefully any Rinos running in November will be routed in favor of real conservatives, like Paul Ryan. Lets hope the people of Wisconsin come to their senses and realize Ryan is a rino traitor and does not deserve another term. Acts like a rino, smell like a rino, is a rino.

    6. texexpatriate says:

      New leadership? No. The answer to what is happening in this federal tyranny is secession.

      1. Redfray says:

        Secession, isn’t that what “political correct” language is all about? The professional politicians are a brotherhood always taking up for each other. They follow the power of money. If you don’t take down the power, you will not destroy the “secession philosophy”. The citizens can’t do anything to these professional politicians, they make the laws, they appoint the judges and make sure the laws don’t apply to them. Conflict-of-Interest by their own law profession.

  • Varmint~ says:

    Wow~This almost sounds to good to be true, you mean we finally grew some balls!

  • Dan says:

    Maybe since it’s a departure from the GOP platform of 2012 when the Republicans nominated Mitt Romney the “gentlemen loser” much like his predecessors i.e. John McCain, Bob Dole it’s a good thing!…..Perhaps we’ll win this one over Crooked Hillary! DONALD TRUMP for President!

    2. ricktenny says:

      Good point Dan. It’s kind of odd how the very gentlemanly Mr. Romney became the attack dog. Perhaps if we had seen more of that in 2012, Obama would have been a distant unpleasant memory.

    3. BILL3000 says:

      2 BETTER Things: Trump goes to Nuremburg for Trial Before he’s elected Fuehrer AND:Dan has a Successful Brain Implant!!

      1. gadgetcoder says:

        BILL3000 – If you want to see a Fuehrer, allow Hillary Clinton to be elected – Then you’ll see both Feuhrer and Madhi. Because Hillary Cunton will be Obama’s puppet.

      2. Dan says:

        Only if the brain implant is covered by the Affordable Care Act…..Bill do you drink the Kool Aid or are you injecting it with a needle?
