Can you image one day looking up our 45th President and seeing Donald Trump’s name? Donald Trump is a successful businessman, I will give him that, but I do not feel confident in his ability to lead this country. Do you?

In a recent interview with Donald NBC‘s Savannah Guthrie asked him, “Is there a right to privacy in the Constitution?” Donald replied, “I guess there is, I guess there is.  And why, just out of curiosity, why do you ask that question?” A similar question was asked to Sarah Palin in her 2008 presidential campaign.  Her answer, also similar to Trumps, was thought to be one of the damaging factors that lead to her loss.  

Trump and Palin are both pro-life. Activists who are anti-abortion or pro-life argue that there is no such thing as the” right to privacy”.  In the case Roe vs. Wade, the courts decided that it is a “right to privacy” under the due process clause in the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution that if a woman decides to have an abortion it is her right to be able to. Consequently, by Trump agreeing that the Constitution has the “right to privacy” he is going against the thoughts of other pro-life activates and therefore contradicting his own beliefs.

What does this say about Donald Trump though?  To me it says, he is not a creditable source. Just as Sarah Palin did, he does not think before he speaks.  I still believe that this is just a publicity stunt for Trump and do not truly believe that he will ever be our President. But if it ever got to the point where he was an actual candidate on our ballet I would truly be fearful of the outcome. So I ask again, is this the type of person you would want to lead our country?
