Republican chick For Hillary, would ya?   July 23, 2016

Meghan Milloy is Director of Financial Services Policy at conservative thinktank, American Action Forum– and now, a member of Republican Women For Hillary:

None of the ideals…Trump has been espousing are Republican ideals.

You look at his trade policy, his immigration policy. He’s an isolationist and a protectionist…those are not Republican ideals…[Trump’s] call to deport all of these immigrants…that is huge gov’t overreach, and a huge gov’t program.

w/ respect to tariffs, Republican presidents from Abraham Lincoln to Theodore Roosevelt to Ronald Reagan supported tariffs.

You can approve or disapprove of protectionism, but it certainly has been a Republican “ideal” until very recently.

w/ respect to mass deportations, that was only to trick the low-information yokels during the GOP primary…

  • In ’12, Trump panned Romney’s “mean-spirited” immigration proposals:

    [Romney] had a crazy policy of self deportation which was maniacal…it sounded as bad as it was, and he lost all of the Latino vote…he lost the Asian vote. He lost everybody who is inspired to come into this country.

  • In ’14, Trump agreed to amnesty:

    My golf course is tended by all these Hispanics — if it wasn’t for them my lawn wouldn’t be the lawn it is; it’s the best lawn…you’ve convinced me.

  • In ’16, there was zero mention of “deportations” at the #RNCinCLE.

In any case, would in her prime (would still now, but definitely back then)…
