Sunday night, Donald Trump (once again) pushed back against a New York Times report suggesting the gaffe-prone lunatic might be willing to “adjust his tone” going into the general election, promising in an oddly inspirational tweet to never, ever change.
I have always been the same person-remain true to self.The media wants me to change but it would be very dishonest to supporters to do so!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 14, 2016
In a followup tweet, Trump appeared to address criticism from within the Republican party about his inability to “stay on message,” blaming the media for the perception that he’s constantly saying wacky shit.
"Stay on message" is the chant. I always do - trade, jobs, military, vets, 2nd A, repeal Ocare, borders, etc - but media misrepresents!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 15, 2016
