Video: Trump takes liberal positions on bathroom law, taxes on rich, immigration

Trump-townhallIt seems that Donald Trump feels he has a large enough lead that he can now openly adopt liberal positions on certain issues.  During a town hall on NBC Thursday, for example, he adopted the left’s position on North Carolina’s so-called “bathroom law,” seen by leftists as supposedly anti-gay because it doesn’t let men use womens’ restrooms in government buildings.

Trump also said he’s okay with raising taxes on the so-called “rich,” those who actually provide jobs.  Keep in mind, this is a staple of liberal politics, and generally doesn’t sit well with Republicans.
