Donald Trump promised to be an avid fighter for Social Security & Medicare. All told, he was just lying to the vulnerable. He made that clear at Davos.

Common Dreams reported Trump's Davos unmasking on CNBC.

KERNEN: Do I dare one last question.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Go ahead.

KERNEN: Entitlements ever be on your plate?

KERNEN: If you're willing

TRUMP: big percentage.

KERNEN: to do some of the things that you said you wouldn't do in the past, though, in terms of Medicare

TRUMP: Well, we're goingwe're going to look....

There is no doubt of Donald Trump's intent. While there is never any concern in blowing up the budget to give tax cuts to his wealthy benefactors, he is intent on balancing the budget on the backs of the middle-class and poor.

Ya know, I read Breitbart every day, and they did a big article about Trump's Davos interview. Surprisingly, Breitbart was very much against cuts to social programs, giving a fairly detailed analysis of why.
