Has the media barrage softened Donald Trump already?
In a recent interview, Trump played down his past hard-edged rhetoric towards Hillary and the Clinton Foundation.
“I don’t want to hurt them, I don’t want to hurt them,” he said when pressed on the question during a 60 Minutes interview that aired Sunday night. “They’re, they’re good people. I don’t want to hurt them.”
When asked the first time, Trump said, “I’m going to think about it.”
But his cautious answer seems to be a clear hint that his stance might be changing from less than a week ago, when he was leading rallies as an underdog candidate in which crowds routinely chanted, “Lock her up!” whenever he mentioned Clinton.
It seems far fetched to say President Trump would pardon the Clinton’s but it’s beginning to look like a President trump will be much more measured in his responses than the candidate and he’ll defer to the governing elites when it comes to prosecutions.
