In her new outlining her opposition to her party’s presidential nominee, Maine Senator Susan Collins finally admitted what so many Republicans have loathed to concede — there will be no pivot from the outrageous antics of primary campaign to a more serious general election strategy for Donald Trump:
I had hoped that we would see a “new” Donald Trump as a general-election candidate — one who would focus on jobs and the economy, tone down his rhetoric, develop more thoughtful policies and, yes, apologize for ill-tempered rants. But the unpleasant reality that I have had to accept is that there will be no “new” Donald Trump, just the same candidate who will slash and burn and trample anything and anyone he perceives as being in his way or an easy scapegoat. Regrettably, his essential character appears to be fixed, and he seems incapable of change or growth.
Hours later, Trump confirmed just that. Despite months of promises of an upcoming “presidential pivot” for the untraditional and controversial presidential candidate, the businessman turned White House aspirant said he believed his primary strategy is the same strategy he plans to employ to win against rival Hillary Clinton in November.
