With Birther Issue Resolved, Trump to Set Sights on China and Taxes

Yesterday, Trump signed Grover Norquist’s “no new taxes” pledge, but not before adding a twist befitting Trump.

Potential 2012 Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump essentially forced President Obama to release his long form birth certificate today.

With that issue resolved, Trump is likely to focus his sights on policy, such as on China and taxes.

Yesterday, Trump signed Grover Norquist’s Americans For Tax Reform’s “no new taxes” pledge, but not before adding a twist befitting Trump.

According to a copy of the pledge he signed, it reads: “I, Donald J. Trump, pledge to the taxpayers of the United States of America that I will oppose and veto any and all efforts to increase taxes.”

Then, in what is becoming a patented use of a Sharpie pen, Trump wrote in “Except on China and other countries that have consistently taken advantage of our great country.”

Trump subsequently wrote to Norquist and said that “as you know, I’m seriously considering becoming a candidate for the President of the United States, and, based upon that, I have agreed to sign the pledge, except, as I have stated on the pledge, will not agree not to raise taxes on China and other countries that have consistently taken advantage of our great country.”

Trump’s letter and a copy of the pledge he signed can be seen here.
