Here's a brief history of Trump's evolving stance on the controversial procedure: Organizers of the event told the paper that Trump and his relatives had received death threats over the dinner and that was the reason they decided to skip it. He declared that he was "very pro-choice," but went on to decry the idea of the procedure.
I hate everything it stands for, I cringe when I listen to people debating the subject, but still I just believe in choice," he said in the televised interview. This clip has been recirculated frequently during this election season and was central to Sen. Ted Cruz 's critique of Trump's "New York values"since Trump repeatedly said in the interview that his social stances were shaped by his upbringing in New York.
Made the Switch When Trump was toying with the idea of running for president inhe told The Times that he was pro-life. Let me put it this way: I am pro life, and pro-life people will find out that I will be very loyal to them, just as I am loyal to other people. Pro-Life When he finally decided to take the plunge and run for the presidency this upcoming term, Trump explained that he had had a change of heart, coming out strongly as pro-life and giving a specific explanation.
And if I did decide to do it, I think I would be inclined — I would say, I would have a hell of a chance of winning, because I think people — I don't know how your audience feels, but I think people are tired of seeing the United States ripped off. And I can't promise you everything, but I can tell you one thing, this country would make one hell of a lot of money from those people that for 25 years have taken advantage. It wouldn't be the way it's been, believe me. Here he spoke to Letterman just after the presidential election.
He said he thought Bush would win and thinks he'll do a good job. But he again used Japan as his punching bag in talking about trade deficits and made the U.
If you look at what certain countries are doing to this country, such as Japan. I mean, they've totally taken advantage of the country. I'm talking about the [trade] deficits.

They come and they talk about free trade. They dump the cars and the VCRs and everything else.
We defend Japan for virtually nothing, which is hard to believe. So when I see all that I get very nervous, but I think George Bush is going to do a great job, and he's going to straighten — hopefully — he'll straighten it out.
But little did he — or Letterman — know that just three years laterTrump would file his first of four bankruptcies over two decades. That was for his hotel and casino in Atlantic City, N.

Trump seems to preview a version of what would eventually become his "Make America Great Again" campaign slogan. Do you want to see the United States become a winner, David? Take a look at this March Playboy interview. Lots of politics in here, including Trump's response to a question about how he'd handle an international crisis, perhaps involving nuclear weapons: He wouldn't trust anyone.
He wouldn't trust the Russians; he wouldn't trust our allies; he'd have a huge military arsenal, perfect it, understand it. Part of the problem is that we're defending some of the wealthiest countries in the world for nothing. We're being laughed at around the world. As he came to do during the campaign, Trump touted the polls.
But he also echoed the dichotomy of Trump — a frustration with some in the media, but also the understanding that he needs them; he used King's show to break news. It was sort of interesting, the one sort of negative poll I had was on Newsweek, and they put me on the cover, so I said, how could you write a poll, how could you do a poll like this, and I'm on the cover of Newsweek?
And, you know, it was just one of those things. But the polls have been unbelievable. But I'll be forming that, effective, I believe, tomorrow, and we'll see.
Donald Trump's Been Saying The Same Thing For 30 Years
We're going to take a very good, strong look at it. I'm the biggest developer in New York, by far. I'm doing more, as you know from being here, a lot.
I'm doing more than any — I'm building story buildings all over the place, and we're just doing a lot, and we're doing great.
The city's the hottest city, and I'm the hottest developer in the hottest city in the world right now. Pat Buchanan, what is he -- you know, he's not giving up anything.
And, politicians when they run, they run from one office to another; it's the same thing, they answer different calls. I'm giving up a lot if I decide to run. Trump, master of the insult, showed his ability to go for the low blow against a potential opponent: I don't even think it would be that tough, it's going to be Buchanan.
And I think he just blew himself up with the book, and his love affair with Adolf Hitler.

He never climbed out of single digits in head-to-heads against George W. Bush and Al Gore, and Trump eventually dropped his bid.
Trump also spelled out some of his philosophy with King. He said that, even though he's a Republican, he's pretty "liberal" on social issues, notably health care. He said he believes, in fact, in "universal health care" and agreed that it was an "entitlement from birth. I really say, what's the purpose of a country if you're not going to have defense and health care.
