It’s probably best to think about Donald Trump’s policy positions like a leaf on the wind. A soaring leaf is always headed gleefully and irrevocably in one direction, until a new gust of wind sends it flying equally as stalwart on a brand new course. Trump and his positions are like that leaf–he’s never more than one hundred percent committed to an idea, until the tides of public sentiment force him to switch course and become one hundred percent committed to a more popular idea. Since Donald Trump won the American Presidential election on November 8, he’s made no shortage of big statements about his intentions once he takes the Oval Office. The issue is that his new statements don’t exactly line up with his campaign promises. With all the Donald’s double-talk, it can be tough to figure out where he lands on a lot of big issues. Here’s our best guess.

1. A Quick Note About the Wall

On the “Positions” page of, there are exactly two issues addressed. The first is simply titled, “Pay for the Wall,” a reference to Trump’s long-held belief that Mexico will financially support the building of a wall along the US-Mexico border. For the time being, it seems as though Trump has not abandoned this plan. There are some who have abandoned it though. Namely, the Mexican government. Though there is a wish to cooperate with America’s new president, Mexico’s foreign minister, Claudia Ruiz Massieu, told reporters, “Paying for a wall is not part of our vision.” In short: Trump can stick to this plan all he wants, but it’s not happening.
