This is not a rumour, he has said these things while seeking his party’s nomination. His view is that we should elect him for a raft of similar policies, policies that ask us to spend less and less on what we need, like health care, like cleaning up after disasters, like hunting down terrorist leaders, and give the money we thereby save to billionaires. If you believe this boyish nonsense, vote for him. If he has changed his mind, he should say in what regard.
I invite him to reply.
