I have been unrelenting in my support of Donald Trump throughout this US Presidential campaign, particularly in the last few months. Generally, I am able to dismiss criticism of Trump reasonably well, as to say the least it is a common occurrence. However, there is growing speculation, of the existence of an off the record tape, containing conversation between Trump and the New York Times. Reportedly, the conversations entail a far different Trump to what we have witnessed throughout the campaign, as it alleged he advocated for a more lenient stance on immigration, and raised doubts over previous proposals to deport illegal immigrants.
The details? Release the transcript. UPDATE: Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio have called on Trump to ask for the tape to be released.
If this tape is a mythical fabrication, I have no issue. However, for me to continue my support of Donald Trump, I want an answer on this issue. Trump’s plans on immigration are a hallmark of his campaign, and so if these accusations are to be proved true, or are not publicly dismissed/ disproven by Trump, in my opinion, all previously held credibility is diminished.
