As he pivots to November, Trump flips on key issuesHe is apparently not willing to spend a billion of his own money to get elected so now wants those he insulted to help him pay for the campaign. He is also starting to flip on other issues like the minimum wage and the border fence. He is every bit as duplicitous as he opponents suggested.
