Donald Trump identifies himself as pro-life and favors defunding Planned
Parenthood today but continues to favor allowing late-term abortions (see
Abortion is Murder) in cases of rape, incest or to protect the health of the mother. He has admitted
to having been pro-abortion until about a decade ago and claims that his views have
"evolved" since then.
Donald Trump's Platform on Homosexual Marriage
Until about a decade ago, Donald Trump did not oppose homosexual marriage. Five
years ago, he changed his position and began to oppose it. After the 2015 U.S. Supreme
Court's Obergefell v. Hodges ruling in favor of homosexual marriage (see
Ages of Supreme Court Justices), Donald
Trump changed his position again and now favors respecting homosexual marriage
as the law of the land (see
Bible verses about Homosexuality).
Donald Trump's Economic Platform
Donald Trump has proposes a 1-5-10-15 income tax plan that would simplify the
income tax code as follows:
1% tax on incomes up to $30,000
5% tax on incomes from $30,001 to $100,000
10% tax on incomes from $100,000 to $1,000,000
15% tax on incomes over $1,000,000
He proposes to close the loopholes in the current income tax code that allow
the rich to pay very low or no income tax, lower the
corporate tax rate to 15%, cap business interest expense deductions, lower the
capital gains tax, eliminate the estate and inheritance taxes, and impose a
35% import tariff on companies that outsource manufacturing abroad (see
America in Decline).
Donald Trump's Foreign Policy Platform
Trump opposed George W. Bush's 2003 invasion of Iraq, arguing that it

would benefit Iran, and that Iraq did not have weapons of mass destruction (see
Is Bush Responsible?).
He welcomed Russia's attacks against ISIS and opposed trying to topple Syria's Bashar al Assad. He is critical of President
2015 nuclear deal with Iran and has said that he will prevent Iran from
developing nuclear weapons.
Donald Trump's Immigration Platform

southern border, and ban all Muslim immigration until U.S. immigration and law
enforcement agencies can identify and prevent the entry of those who
have been radicalized (see
Islam: what the West needs to know).
