Two Weeks After Calling It a ‘Total Disaster’ Trump Says ‘We’re Going to Keep Common Core’ at S.C. Rally

At a rally in Clemson, South Carolina on Wednesday night, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump came out in favor of the controversial Common Core. A mere two weeks ago, Trump said he would end Common Core, making this statement a major flip-flop on education policy.

A tweet posted by @MrJoshPerry reveals Trump’s new-found stance on the Common Core. In the video, Trump says, “We are going to do something special… Common Core, we’re going to keep.”

Just two weeks ago, Trump posted a video on Facebook exclaiming, “Common core is a total disaster. We can’t let it continue.”

Trump has been a front-runner throughout the 2016 Republican primary for telling it like it is. But how can he tell it like it is when he does not even know what he believes?

This changed stance could impact the future of Trump’s campaign. In a 2015 CPAC poll, 58% of people polled said that thy could not vote for a candidate who supported Common Core. Furthermore, according to CNS News, only 37% of Republicans support Common Core.

Not only is the stance itself a bad call for Trump, but also his notorious in-your-face rhetoric is greatly downgraded when it is accompanied by a person who forgets he is actually a donkey in elephants clothing.

Moments after this article was published, Mr. Trump tweeted the following:

  1. This video is a lie and a fake, checked it out myself, check on youtube, same background, he did not not say that we were keeping Common Core, he said we were getting rid of it.

      1. Sound Editing. You can dice and splice soundtracks to make people say anything you want them too, as long as you have the various words on tape.

        1. I watched the actual video on You Tube. Same people in the background. Same everything on the screen. His actual words were “Common Core is a disaster”. Someone is playing tricks with the sound track on that clip. Politics as usual.

      2. Dubbed, it’s easy to do.. refer to the original….I saw the original on TV and it did NOT say keep common core… some one must be desperate and afraid to resort to this fake post..

        1. Here is a tweet that Trump sent out right after that rally:

          Donald J. Trump ‏@realDonaldTrump 22h22 hours ago

          “I have been consistent in my opposition to Common Core. Get rid of Common Core— keep education local!”

      1. Why would you believe he didn’t mean what he plainly said? I get the impression that Trump supporters don’t care what he says. Did he accurately described his supporters when he said he could shoot someone on 5th Avenue and wouldn’ t lose a supporter?

        1. You missed one small thing he didn’t say “he could shoot someone and not lose his supporters”, he said “someone” said he could, do you see the difference?

      2. Well, Even If it was a slip, stuff like That can cost you when you are running for President. They tend to call that FLIP FLOPPING…

    1. Seriously!!!! I have Never seen so many Ignorant people! The Video was Altered… It was an ELEVEN SECOND Video!!!
      He Clearly said Common core were gonna keep!!!

      This is even Worse than OBAMA SHEEPLE!! Wow… You See/Hear from His Own Mouth, and You people STILL DENY HE SAID IT! How Phucking Stupid can you be!!!

  2. How can tell it like it is, when he doesn’t even know what it is. I don’t think he thinks ut what he says, and sometimes don’t think that he en thinks period.

    1. I agree, He flip flops so much, I don’ think he remembers what he said a few minutes ago. This man is dangerous people, WAKE UP.

    1. As Chris Tucker would Say… CAN YOU UNDERSTAND THE WORDS THAT ARE COMING OUT OF MY MOUTH!!!!

      He Said it Very Clearly… He Stated on Hannity tonight though, that he does Not want common core..

      TED CRUZ 2016!!!

  3. #Trump had 1 hour sleep! If true he’s totally against common core!
    Here’s who starting this mess!
    Google Ted Cruz in youtube his comments on the eve
    Joe Biden buried his son! Cruz is a liar!

    1. You Freaking Idiots are Really starting to Piss me off…
      It is an ELEVEN SECOND VIDEO!!
      He CLEARLY Said, Common core, were gonna keep…
      Although tonight he on Hannity he said that No Common Core..

      I don’t care How Loyal you Are to a Candidate, when you actually SEE/HEAR THE WORDS COMING OUT OF HIS MOUTH….
      DON’T MAKE AN ASS OF YOURSELF BY DENYING IT!!!

      Ted Cruz 2016

      Oh, and THIS VIDEO and Those WORDS COMING OUT OF TRUMPS MOUTH, CRUZ DID NOT MAKE TRUMP SAY THEM!!!

      Trump Says, go jump off a bridge,,, And there you go,,, Wow!

      1. Angela, what baffles me is how ignorant you are when your mouth opens. Do you understand English. The 11 second video byte was edited. When he spoke live he did not say keep common core. If your going to make comments on here that show how ignorant you are then maybe you should do a little research first. That way you only look dumb and not total ignorant and bat shit crazy.

  4. I watched Trumps speech last night. He was speaking fast about a lot of stuff and I dont remember him saying this and even if he did, he just misspoke. If you watch the whole speech on Youtube and put it into context you’ll realize it wasnt what he meant. He went on and on and on about Jeb Bush being a disgrace for supporting common core, so this clip was taken completely out of context to 99.999% of what he said last night.

    1. As Chris Tucker would Say… CAN YOU UNDERSTAND THE WORDS THAT ARE COMING OUT OF MY MOUTH!!!!

      He Said it Very Clearly… He Stated on Hannity tonight though, that he does Not want common core..

      DON’T MAKE AN ASS OF YOURSELF BY DENYING IT!!!

      Oh, and THIS VIDEO and Those WORDS COMING OUT OF TRUMPS MOUTH, CRUZ DID NOT MAKE TRUMP SAY THEM!!!

      Trump Says, go jump off a bridge,,, And there you go,,, Wow!

      TED CRUZ 2016!!!

      1. Trump Bots are Unreachable…trying to talk sense into them is impossible..like banging your head against a wall… work on the ones with brains like x-Fiorina and Christie supo
        rters… they are way more sensible.

  5. The clip has been altered!!! Try watching his mouth as you listen to it. You can’t believe everything that you hear !!! I suppose you think everything you see on the internet is true too !!

  6. Don’t drink the koolaid. Drink the best water instead.🙂 With the same properties as the healing waters in Lourdes, France. http://Www.onlykangenwater.com for your FREE eBook. Use contact form to learn how to make more then 6 figures with Enagic’s patented compensation plan!

    1. Good for you, hahahah. LOOK at all these credulous, well meaning people, how can you resist trying to sell them medicine water. But seriously, these are good people, don’t mock THEM. Rather, just ask Trump himself to clarify it himself in writing. And if you don’t like his response, sue him; it’s his own suggestion for obtaining redress from a perceived wrong that is not responded to.

      1. Refer to the original video it was on tv… this video is a fake… Trump did NOT say keep common core…Whoever posted this fake video must be intimidated by Trump…

    1. It Doesn’t Matter What you see at Time Stamp 53:00,,
      HE SAID IT IN THIS ELEVEN SECOND VIDEO,,
      Yes, He May have Said something Different further Into the Video, but Not in this 11 Second Frame.. Usually, this is referred to as a FLIP FLOP,, But usually they wait a few days in between,,

      LOL… Wow
      And we have had a Few that have Accused Ted Cruz of MAKING HIM SAY IT!
      Sorry, but I did Not See Ted Cruz on the Platform there…

      Talk about drinking some freaking Kool-aid,,,,
      People, get OFF YOUR KNEES,,, You’re Embarrassing yourselves!!!

  7. Trump actually did say it, the video is not doctored or anything. But in the same speech he said he is against it. I believe he meant to say common core we are getting rid of it. I am not saying this because I am a Trump supporter, I am saying this because this is what I believe. There is enough of Trump saying ridiculous things without using an 11 second clip that says he is keeping common core when in every other speech he says he is getting rid of it. I also believe he is only for getting rid of it because of the polls and I don’t believe if you gave him a quiz he could tell you what it is. I ask that all my fellow Cruz supporters let this one go and go with the other things he says. Like for instance he tweet the other day that blamed conservatives for what is happening right now.

    1. This video is FAKE and tampered with…. I saw the original video on the news and he did NOT SAY KEEP Common core….IF you do not believe this video is a FAKE, check it out….

  8. For all you people that Trump actually said what they have him saying in that 11 second clip, go here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5UaVxsmMFHk,( A video of most of the speech), and advance to the 50:24 in the video, on my screen there was a commercial break that played right at that spot, it was the next to the last one, and Trump clearly says “Common Core is a disaster”. It has to be the same speech, it has the same people in the background, and everything else looks exactly the same. It’s a shame the mics hide his lips in the 11 second video that is causing the uproar, so that you can’t read his lips. With sound editing software you can make someone say anything you want, as long as you have the same words recorded, and software that will let you cut and splice the soundtrack. I imagine this is a product of Bush, or the GOP establishment, or possibly Cruz. I will try and find out who pulled this low life scam.

  9. Um… how about a candidate that is so intent on riling up his base that he uses an irrelevant issue? Common Core is no longer a “thing”. The ESEA re-authorization that was passed and signed in December does away with “Common Core”.
